Eve TALKS Fave Femcees (And Makes It Known Iggy Azalea Isn't One)+ Ashanti PERFORMS For The Morning Riot's Anniversary

 

As sge prepares her musical return, Eve recently addressed how she feels about the new crop of female MCs and the beefs between Lil' Kim/Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea/Azealia Banks. Find out what she said inside and see Ashanti performing for The Morning Riot's 3-Year anniversary.

While working on her Lip Lock album, Eve took the time to talk about her place in music with The Women of Hip-Hop and she also shared her opinions about female MCs beefs between Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea, and Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj.

On her new music:

“I’m gonna throw out a viral single at the end of this month before the official single. I’m probably gonna throw out a couple records before the radio single. My whole goal for this record, since it’s been so long, I wanted to make sure that my core audience didn’t feel like Eve completely forgot about us and went to another side. I feel like this record is well rounded. It has enough of the hard street stuff, it has some radio stuff, but it also has some stuff that people can listen to when they’re feeling down.”

On new female rappers:

“I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really fuck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it.”

On her dream collaboration:

“Lauryn Hill has always been my one dream collaboration. She to me is so dope lyrically. Unfortunately, she’s just in a place right now mentally, but that would be a dream come true.”

On which five female MCs she would put on a record:

“I would definitely have to get Missy [Elliott]. I would definitely have to do Kim ’cause I never got to do a record with Kim. Azealia Banks, I like her. A lot of people want me to hate on Nicki and say crazy things about her. I ain’t got nothing to say about her. Until somebody names me by name, then I don’t feel like nobody [is talking] about me. I wouldn’t have a problem putting her on a record.”

On the Lil’ Kim vs. Nicki Minaj feud:

“It’s not about publicity. It’s about wanting that respect. I think maybe that’s where Kim is coming from, like, you’re doing your thing right now and no one can take that away from you, Nicki—we all see it—but at the end of the day, if it wasn’t for Kim, she wouldn’t be here and that shit is real.”

Most of the time I mind my

Most of the time I mind my business but First off, Eve is NOT irrelevant, she has and will always be one of the best Female Rappers that ever done it. Second, Nicki Garbage was coming at Lil Whore, I mean Lil Kim way before Roman's revenge, you must've never heard her mix tapes. If you're gonna be a Nicki stan at least do your homework, then how you gonna come out with tacky pink and blonde wigs calling yourself something plastic and not think Lil Whore was gonna be offended? She been doing that for years, and for Nicki Garbage to say "Nobody really inspired me, i did this on my own this is me" LOL that shit was hilarious. They way Nicki Garbage is with Lil Wayne and Drake, thats how Lil Whore was with Diddy and Biggie LOL #hoesbewinning

@Jaylah 11:10 am What world

@Jaylah 11:10 am What world are you living in because I would love to visit you. EVE is IRRELEVANT! What is Eve doing???? NOTHING! Eve can't sell in 2012 and even she knows that. Nicki is the BIGGEST Female rapper out and she is the ONLY GAME in town. Nicki has the Largest TWITTER Followers and she SELLS the most. Did Eve ever get a Pepsi deal???? IS Eve headlining show all over the world? NO. And sorry Nicki never dissed anyone that was not her MO ever. Nicki did Roman's Revenge because Kim was out of pocked and needed to be knocked down to EARTH. Nicki is the BEST and her numbers back that claim up so please have a SEAT. Jaylah it's best you don't speak because you really don't have anything of VALUE to say about Nicki. #nickiisthetruth

Selling does not make you

Selling does not make you relevant. Nicki sells but her music is idiotic. Stupid Hoe, Beez in da Trap. Idiotic music for idiotic people living idiotic lives. It does not stand up to what Kim or EVE did in the industry. It sells to gays, whites, and kids. It is not hip hop. It is selling stupidity to stupid people with some good beats. Sometimes songs are just good beats.

Please have an auditorium

Please have an auditorium full of seats, I give credit where it is due, Nicki Minaj has a zillion fans but do you know why? Because the bitch is a pop star she throws lil hardcore "rap shit" (if thats what you wanna call it) out there to keep the black community talking, but she is a POP ARTIST! Most of her fans are white and of other ethnicity, Eve is a REAL rap artist that raps about real shit, nicki minaj is a Garbage Rapper! Yes she has a Pepsi deal underway, and thats the perks of being a pop artist (Hence Britney Spears, Micheal Jackson) The bitch sucks as a rapper. She says shit like "I get it cracking like a bad back. Bitch talkin she the queen, when she looking like a lab rat" LOl she reminds me of that white parody rapper Weird Al Yankovic Lol the bitch is a joke. YUHHHSSSSS *Snaps*

@Jaylah 11:34 am What is

@Jaylah 11:34 am What is wrong with being POP? Nicki rapps but she is POP so is DRAKE, TYGA, and almost anyone you can name. ODD Future is POP and they are as HARD as any rap group can get. Do you even know Earl Sweatshirts MO? You need to be more accepting of the QUEEN. Nicki is opening doors for all these RAGGEDY ANN Mc's like Eve and Stinky Kim. LOL Nicki does it with GRACE. And her image is wider than any of those other people. I think it's better to have an IMAGE that can reach more FANS she can do RAPs like "Stupid HOE" but then turn around and do something deeper and more reflective. I think you just need to open up more to Nicki. LMAO @ "Have an auditorium full of seats" LOVE that! I may have to borrow that one LOL :)

Where the fuck are you from

Where the fuck are you from that you think Odd Future is "hard"? LMAO @ you! You're the type of corny chick from the suburbs who hops on whatever trend is popular at the moment, which is why you think those devil worshiping weirdos are hard. Earl Sweatshirts??? Really, FOH! How about Wu Tang, Onyx, The Lox, Mobb Deep. I realize they're before your time, but those are THE grimiest "hardest" rap groups ever. They'd backahand slap the shit outta each member in Odd Future...fuckin weirdos.

just my 2 cents... but there

just my 2 cents... but there is a big difference between being a pop artist and dropping a pop song. hell, 2pac had a few pop singles... but I would have to agree with the majority and say that Nicki Minaj is more of a POP artist than a RAP artist... just my opinion... carry on. :D

Everything you stated is an opinion not a fact. Nicki is having her 15 minutes, I'll give her that but the truth is if there were no Lil' Kim, there'd be no Nicki Manaj. How is she opening doors for someone when the door was already opened for her?

@Anonymous 10:56 am Kim

@Anonymous 10:56 am Kim never got to where Nicki is. And if it were not for Nicki Eve could not even consider dropping a new CD. The category of Female rappers are DOA but Nicki changed that. The fact that Kim can make any money these days is because of Nicki. Don't bite the hand that feeds you is Nicki's message to these broke down female rappers. #teamnicki4life

in regards to your statement,

in regards to your statement, "And if it were not for Nicki Eve could not even consider dropping a new CD."... are you serious??? you do know who Eve is right? She stopped rapping to do other things like produce TV shows, make movies, promote her clothing lines, etc..... this ain't Khia we talking about... this is Eve... she can drop an album independently, distribute and promote it by her damn self. Please show respect where respect is due.

It has been over a month

It has been over a month since the murder of our young brother, cousin, nephew, and son Trayvon Martin. The murderer of the slain has not been arrested as of today 4/9/12. I’m sure many of us are baffled as to why this case is being drawn out , when there are more than enough details and evidence to conclude that this was indeed a vicious hate crime. Many of us are at our wits end. We have signed petition after petition and attended rally after rally, only to have Trayvon’s character questioned as if he is not the deceased victim in the case. What do we do now? We #SHUTITDOWN2012. We stop spending our hard earned money in businesses/ corporations who fund laws such as the Stand Your Ground Law which just so happens to be the law that is protecting Trayvon Martins killer from being arrested. The first stop is WALMART. They were influential in the passing of this law among many other systematic ways to violate the melanin enriched people of the U.S.A. FOLLOW @SHUTITDOWN2012 on twitter if you would like to learn more about this movement. “There are no problems we cannot solve together and very few we can solve by ourselves. “
