Dish Nation has added a new member to their already stellar cast. It’s Da Brat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat. That’s right, the female emcee has been announced as the FOX show’s new co-host.

The rapper began guest hosting last summer alongside the show’s creator Rickey Smiley, Headkrack, Gary with da Tea, Rock T, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s, Porsha Williams and is now here to stay.

“Since the first day I filled in on Dish Nation, it felt comfortable and there was a natural chemistry,” Brat said in a statement. “The amazingly talented personalities that I’m surrounded by every day make me thrive to be better.”

She added, “I am so grateful that Rickey Smiley gave me the opportunity to do his morning show and ecstatic to be a part of the Dish Nation family. I’ve had an incredible career since 1994 and I feel like it’s just the beginning all over again.  Thank you Dish Nation family!”

Stephen Brown, EVP of Programming and Development, FOX Television Stations added, “We are very excited to have Da Brat officially join the Dish Nation team. Having been a celebrated rap artist for over two decades, Da Brat brings an authentic voice to the world of entertainment news. Once she began guest hosting, we knew right away we had to make her a permanent member of the Dish family.”

Shawntae Harris, the rapper’s legal name, first hit the scene in the early 90’s with her debut album, Funkdafied. The success of the LP led to the rapper becoming the first female solo rap act to have a platinum-selling album.

Congrats to the star.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
