Eve has no interest in any sort of “beef” with other female hip hop artist. In an interview with Complex, the veteran rhymer explained why she avoids silly confrontations on wax and admitted that she feels like the media is the main culprit in a lot of the feuding that goes on between lady rappers.
“I’d rather avoid beef than use it in my career,” she said directly.
“The biggest misconception about female rappers today is that we’re trying to take another person’s light and we’re all competing against each other. I hate drama. If you have a problem with me, let’s talk about it woman to woman. Media pitting female artists against each other is the dumbest thing in the world. I don’t indulge in that sh*t.”
Eve’s return to music has been years in the making. The veteran Philadelphia femcee spoke at-length with SOHH about her upcoming project, Lip Lock and how surprisingly easy it was for her to land guest stars on the album despite her having been away so long.
“Honestly, it was easy getting all of my collaborations for Lip Lock. I thank God because it wasn’t too hard, to be honest,” she said. “I’m happy that the people I got on the record were down to be on this record. Honestly, I didn’t run up on anything crazy. The feedback I have received with my comeback has been pretty good. I’ve been getting responses from people when I go out and I’ve been getting love from people but at the same time, I’m sure there are people who are waiting to see what this album does and waiting to see what happens with the records. Overall, it’s been pretty positive.”
