So So Def rapper Da Brat recently revealed her feminine side in a â€˜summer chicâ€™ shoot for VIBE. The Chicago native, born Shawntae Harris, maintains that despite her usual tomboy style, getting girlie is second nature to her. Da Brat â€“ whose current mixtape Life After Death is available for download on Global14.com â€“ gives some insight into the shoot here:
How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?
I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup. Both hair and make-up were great. And I loved the photographer, Alex. I definitely want to do more photo shoots with him because I can tell he is passionate about his work.
Here are all the photos and the interview:
Was it uncomfortable transitioning into a â€œsex symbolâ€ or is this just another side of you that we never see?
Iâ€™m such a fucking lady. I loved to get glammed up. I love manis and pedis. I like to go to Vicky Secrets and La Perla because I like lace and bikinis. Iâ€™m such a P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thug)

It depends on the look and how Iâ€™m feeling that day.
