Eve Vs Interscope
The female rapper speaks about her trouble with the label...
Eve recently posted a message on her Twitter page, confirming her departure from her long-time label Interscope. The 31-year-old female rapper has never spoken about the split, well, until now. Eve talked to hip-hop publication VIBE Magazine about her ordeal.
Eve said: "[Interscope was] stupid because they didn’t drop me at first, they [just shelved me] and dropped the ball. After Tambourine they straight up were like, ‘Umm, yeah, nah, we’re not putting out the record.’ After that I was like 'Yall gotta let me go. I’ve been here 11 years and you’re frontin on me?' It got to that point.
"I'm not going to talk shit about them, but I don’t appreciate the fact that they didn’t go the extra mile for me. They promised me the machine. The machine is basically the roll out. It’s 'Yo, when [Flirt] comes out, we’ll give you this, we’ll give you that. And that’s what made me mad.
"It’d be different if we didn’t have a mtg where people promised me shit. If they were just like ‘Oh we’re going to put the album out and see what happens,’ that would be one thing.”
