Da Brat continues to evolve on her fourth So So Def set. Long gone is the tomboy MC who made her debut in 1994 with "Funkdafied." In her place is a female MC who ably walks the fine line between femininity and ferocity with the best of them. On "World Premiere," the album's first track, the Chicago native teams with executive producer Jermaine Dupri, Q Da Kid and M.O.P. for a hypnotic, no-nonsense posse track. Da Brat shows her softer side on "Gotta Thing for You" (featuring Mariah Carey) and the set's lead single, "In Love Wit Chu" (which showcases Cherish). Whether she's running with the boys or pining over them, Da Brat remains one of the better female MCs in the game.—RH
