Despite being the daughter of the famous comedian Richard Pryor, Rain did not live in her father's shadow. Instead, she carved her own space in the world of entertainment and even beyond. 

Last year, she announced that she would be going into politics. Her decision came because she did not like the way officials in Lotus' school handled bullying. Hence, she decided to do something about it. 

On her 50th birthday, Pryor filed to run for the Baltimore City Council, aiming to defeat first-term Councilman Ryan Dorsey who is from the city's northern district.
