It's good to see Eve back on the scene. She will be releasing her fourth studio album titled Lip Lock in 2013. The Philly emcee stopped by MTV's RapFix Live earlier this week and was very open about a lot of topics including her relationship with Stevie J and the leaked sex tape.
"It definitely didn't [help me]. By the way when that happened sex tapes weren't hot like that and I got the FBI involved," Eve said. "So that's not something I even wanted to happen. However it got out, it did get out. I don't know who did it, I'm not putting any names out there. I respect my mother and my family. And that's not something I'm OK with and it hurt my heart."
Eve's first big break in the music business came courtesy of Dr. Dre's Aftermath label. Unfortunately things didn't work out there and she eventually moved on.
"Aftermath was my first home, with Dr. Dre. But me and Dre just couldn't get along," she explained. "I'm a strong chick and I don't like being told what to do. I don't care if you're the best at what you do. Dre just knows how to push your buttons, but I just have to say every time he pushed my buttons, he got the best out of me. So he knew what he was doin'. It's just communication wise we just couldn't get it. I can't remember exactly what record, but he made me say one word over, like 45 times. I swear to God; I'm not lying. He wouldn't let me out of the studio. I kicked the mic down and threw a bottle at the glass, and after I did all that, I said it the right way and he let me out."
There was also a reunion with Ruff Ryders partner in rhyme Sheek Louch and Eve spit a short freestyle.
