Before there was Nicki, Remy or Iggy, there was Eve. The “Pit Bull in a Skirt” reigned supreme throughout the ’90s and 2000s, but virtually disappeared from the spotlight after meeting and marrying British businessman Maximillian Cooper some five years ago.
Now it seems the Philly-bred MC is ready for her triumphant return. Currently she can be heard on the Missy Elliot track “I’m Better (Remix)” and told HipHollywood recording the song got her excited to make new music.
“That kind of sparked my whole thing of wanting to get into the studio,” she confessed. “So I’ll definitely be in the studio this year.”
On the Lamb-produced remix which also features Lil’ Kim and Trina, Eve boasts about her lavish lifestyle and still being the baddest chick in the game. “I’m so anti / Winning in life by a landslide / I know you see me, you see me / Your chick wanna be me, but she could never be me.”
Lyrically it would seem much hasn’t changed, so what can fans expect from her sound? Unfortunately she couldn’t say much about the album, or who she’s working with, but did assure fans it would be worth the wait. “It’s in the baby stages, but it will be good, trust me.
In the meantime, those itching for some E-V-E can catch her on the Ruff Ryders reunion tour going down through September.
