As a single mum, Eve never had enough time to check out the latest trends in celebrity baby names. It wasn't until a baby shower a few years ago that she became a name-o-phile, thanks to a baby shower invitation from a friend who proudly displayed her namesake on a glorious shower print. She is now a proud owner of a 'Beatrix,' a name she hopes will inspire the next generation of cool baby girls.

(Source:en.wikipedia.org eIn 1999, Eve discussed stripping in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying "that was a hustle, too; there's a song about it on my album, 'Heaven Only Knows.' But I don't regret it – I was eighteen and confused, going through personal problems. I did it for about a month, and I was glad I did it. It helped me find Eve, helped me get serious. It was depressing – a lot of those girls have three or four kids. I'd sit there and be like, 'Eve, you don't belong here, this is not your world.'" (Source:n.wikipedia.org)))

In July 2007, Eve made a guest appearance on Maroon 5's second single "Wake Up Call" on Live 45th at Night.

Eve Jihan Jeffers Cooper is a proud Philadelphia native. She initially found a place as a singer in an all-female R&B cover group called Dope Girl Posse, but when the group’s manager suggested they take a rap approach, Eve began sharpening her lyrical pen. After initially signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath and appearing on 1998’s Bulworth soundtrack and The Roots’ “You Got Me,” Eve moved to Ruff Ryders Entertainment/Interscope and was properly introduced on “What Ya Want.” The 1999 single, found on the compilation Ryde or Die Vol. 1, was sharp and assertive, with Eve rapping over a catchy Swizz Beatz production.

Eve followed up with “Gangsta Lovin’,” the lead single from 2002’s Eve-Olution. Featuring Alicia Keys, the affectionate single displayed Eve’s softer side – and also peaked at No. 2. “Rich Girl” – the second team-up from Stefani, the rapper, and Dr. Dre – sampled Louchie Lou & Michie One’s 1993 song of the same name. The single, from Stefani’s debut 2004 album Love. Angel. Music. Baby., received a 2005 Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Prior to the 2010s streaming takeover, it was a challenge for rappers (let alone female rappers) to earn such chart success. But Eve was proof that it was possible. (Source: www.udiscovermusic.com)

Along with crafting chart smashes, Eve was also admired by fans for the confidence she helped give them. And it was all due to braggadocio lyricism that made listeners feel they were the most important person in the room. Eve first made that clear on the song “What Ya Want,” where she proved that women were secure enough to not fall for a man’s weak pick-up lines. “Who’s That Girl?”, the lead single from 2001’s Scorpion, may not have been a major hit (it peaked at No. 47 on Billboard’s Hot 100) but it quickly became a fan favorite thanks to the bold melodies that matched Eve’s equally in-your-face lyricism.

Eve is reminding us how much of a queen she is on her new series, fittingly titled Queens. The new ABC show follows a ’90s R&B girl group of the same name who attempt to make their comeback and mend their friendships more than 20 years after splitting up. On the show, the rapper unites with fellow ’90s and early 2000s icons Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Valazquez to create the fictional girl group of our dreams. Naturally, the series prompted renewed interest in the star’s personal life, especially when it comes to her relationships. (Source: www.bustle.com Eve’s initial interest was singing and not actually rapping. She sang in several choirs and even launched an all-female singing group called Dope Girl Posse or EDGP with their manager. The group made cover songs from En Vogue and Color Me Badd. They changed to rapping following the manager’s request. After the group broke up, Eve began working on a solo career under the stage name “Eve of Destruction”. (Source:www.wiki.ng))

Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryder's First LadyEve's first full-length was titled Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders First Lady and released in September 1999. With Ruff Ryders the biggest name in rap, the album was an instant smash; it entered the charts at number one -- the first time a female rapper had ever accomplished that feat -- and went on to sell over two-million copies. Eve also scored hits with the R&B Top Ten "Gotta Man" and the anti-domestic violence track "Love Is Blind," and guested on Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott's hit "Hot Boyz." After touring in support of the record, Eve returned to the studio and delivered her follow-up, Scorpion, in early 2001. The album received strong reviews and topped the R&B charts, while debuting at number four on the pop side. Lead single "Who's That Girl?" had some chart success, but it was the follow-up, a duet with No Doubt's Gwen Stefani called "Let Me Blow Ya Mind," that really broke Eve on the pop charts. The song rocketed to number two and went on to win a Grammy in the newly created category of Best Rap/Sung Collaboration; it also helped Scorpion go platinum. (Source: www.hiphopscriptures.com)
