It was 1999 when fans were first introduced to E-V-E with her multiple platinum debut Let There Be Eve… Ruff Ryders’ First Lady. Since then, she has dropped two more solo shots and taken on Hollywood with roles in films like “Barbershop” and the 2004 Sundance breakout “The Woodsman” as well as star in her television sitcom which ran from 2003 to 2006. Through it all, however, Eve is most known for her inclusion in the storied Ruff Ryder collective which at one time boasted the talents of DMX, Swizz Beatz, Jadakiss and Drag-On.
In October, Eve partnered up with some of her Double R running mates for BET’s 2012 Hip Hop Awards Cypher. Still, it’s been 10 years since the self-proclaimed Pitbull in a Skirt released an official solo album, but Eve is back in the studio and has been setting the stage for a new 2013 LP with a new single (“She Bad Bad”) and weekly freestyle music series (Evestylin Tuesdays). Earlier this month, Eve commandeered Future’s hit single “Turn on the Lights” and added her own feminine touch.
“Been hearin’ that my name’s been called, you been searchin’ for a queen/ You in need of a Ryder? Ain’t nothin’ better than the Eve,” she spits with a double-time flow and flirtatious intonations.
It’s clear that she hasn’t lost a step in the booth, so with such an illustrious foundation already laid and a return to rap in front of her, you can expect an in-depth conversation when Eve sits down with MTV News correspondent and “RapFix” host Sway Calloway. Couple that with all the latest hip-hop news as well as our weekly Get in the Game segment and it’s clear that on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, “RapFix” is the place to be.
