Eve Has Changed
The female rapper is no longer a Ruff Ryder...
Philadelphia-born rapper Eve is apparently planning on leaving her old rap style in the past and hopes that her fans will like her new direction.
She told Ink Magazine: "I hate it when people say, 'The old Eve, the old Eve.' No! I can't pretend to be that girl anymore. If I did, people would see that and be like, ‘Why is she trying to be that same person?’
"When I went to take label meetings and they would listen to the music, a lot of them would be like, 'Yeah, that's good, but what's up with the Ruff Ryders s**t?' I'm like, 'Yo, I was 21 then.'
“It's been years now; I've done a million different things. Tambourine isn't Ruff Ryders. The records I did with Gwen Stefani weren't Ruff Ryders.
"I trust my audience enough to think they've grown, just like me - I'm hoping for that, but we'll see."
