It’s been 11 years since we’ve gotten album out of Eve and now that we have Lip Lock banging in our speakers, we couldn’t be more satisfied with the growth from the “Illest Pit Bull In A Skirt.” And in that growth we’re seeing more sides of the hard core, Philly-bred lyricist. She’s an actress, a clothing designer, a lucky girlfriend and an ambitious woman with a heart that matches her record sales.
Despite her busy schedule, #TeamBeautiful was able to connect with the “Tambourine” rapstress and we dished over her current tour, why female rappers can’t get along and who she wants to work with. But that’s not where the conversation ends with former feminine voice of reason of the Ruff Ryders. We just had to ask her about one of the most controversial rappers from her former rap set, DMX. Controversy seems to follow the troubled rapper around. And with Eve being one of his closest friends, we had to know what type of insight someone on the inside had to offer about DMX. And what Eve had to share about her friend, warmed our hearts.
HelloBeautiful: So you’ve been on tour…
Eve: “I haven’t toured in the States in years. We’re doing smaller, intimate interviews. It’s been great to connect with fans with my old and new stuff. We’re all just having fun, more than anything else. We’re remembering to have fun while making music.”
HB: Why don’t female rappers get along?
Eve: “I have never been that type of chick. I don’t get into it. I don’t have the patience for it. It’s crazy these girls are beefing. There’s so many dudes out who work together, with females, we always have to be so catty to be the one. I don’t get it. I just pay attention. I don’t have the time. It’s too petty.”
HB: Are there any you want to work with?
