Queens of Hip-Hop: Eve

Being a woman in a male-dominated industry takes an almighty package of guts, grit, willpower, drive, ambition and inner security within your abilities. Ruff Ryder goddess, Eve, is a bold and brassy Hip-Hop figure that has sparked conversation worldwide for her authenticity and various artistic abilities throughout her career. The electrifying energy sparked by Eve certainly has heads turning and mindsets changing gears, but, her supercharged passion toward meshing Feminist Culture with their musicality breeds her own category of originality. As one of the leading ladies of the game who has released four albums that each carry their own dose of pure grit, Eve became one of the highest-charted female artists of all time and lit up the Ruff Ryders crew with her bold sensuality, skill and craft abounding sass. In celebration of the Ruff Ryders lady, here are six of her greatest rhymes.


“Drop your glasses, shake your asses
Face screwed up like you having hot flashes
Which one, pick one, this one, classic
Red from blonde, yeah bitch I’m drastic
Why this, why that, lips stop askin’
Listen to me baby, relax and start passin’
Expressway, hair back, weaving through the traffic
This one strong should be labelled as a hazard
Some of y’all niggas hot; psych, I’m gassin’
Clowns I spot em and I can’t stop laughin’
Easy come, easy go, E-V gon’ be lastin’
Jealousy, let it go, results could be tragic
Some of y’all ain’t writing well, too concerned with fashion
None of you ain’t Giselle, cat walk and imagine
A lot of y’all Hollywood, drama, casted
Cut bitch, camera off, real shit, blast it”

Track – “Let me blow ya mind”



I don’t even know you and I’d kill you myself
You played with her like a doll and put her back on the shelf
Wouldn’t let her go to school and better herself
She had a baby by your ass and you ain’t giving no help
Uh-huh big time hustler, snake motherfucker
One’s born everyday and everyday she was your sucker

Track – “Love Is Blind”



“Long cash, twenty-one, investigating in stock shit
Call the ??? long so I could cock shit
Now I’m supposed to down play all the things I want in my life
Got my own money now, ain’t gotta be nobody wife
Only if I want to, not cause I need to
Choose the situations I do and do not go through
I told you I was gonna make it big, gonna grow
This is dedicated to all of the haters that didn’t know
But they know who it was
Haters created my buzz
Talking about me made people wonder who she was
And I’m here now
Going on my second year now
Fuck it, we could take it there, keep at a stare down
Now I think that my message is clear now
That bitch E-V-E singing what you hear now”m

Track – “Be Me”



“Ain’t never stuck up off the freezyness
Same bitch, same pitch nothing rediculous
Want this brown girl I see you thug lick your lips
Gotta have that bombshell, damn girl I need you for me
Keep love on the both sides, we in the church
On these niggas getting smoke ties, dominoe playing
Up here praying that they legalize, but fuck it still choke top down
Baby blowing smoke in the sky, come on”

Track – “Hey Y’all”



“Hand in hand with the dog
And whatever the fuck went down she ran with the dog
First time I had a match and didn’t scratch
You catch just loss half you niggas, but the punk can fetch
And I know my babygirl is gonna stretch
Any rappin’ motherfucker, male or female
Place your bets
You can imagine what the bloodline is like
Since I love mine to fight
I’m on some shit like what time tonight”

Track – “Dog Fight”



You got petty dough and I’m here to let you know

My time is priceless, so if you iceless, babygirl gotta go

Track – “Ain’t Got No Dough”
