Eve hasn’t been too active in the Hip-Hop scene lately. That’s about to change with the release of her upcoming album Here I Am. In a recent interview with Giant Magazine, the femcee opened up about a variety of topics ranging anywhere from sex tapes to her “beef” with Lil’ Kim.
Sex tapes are scandalous events for anyone involved. Eve is no exception.
“I was hurt by it. But what kept me calm was that everybody knew he was my boyfriend. Not that I wanted people to see me having sex, but it wasn’t like I was getting gangbanged – that would have been crazy,” she said of her sex tape.
That isn’t the only thing bothering Eve, She also expressed displeasure for the Hip-Hop scene today and put a certain rap group on blast.
“For me, it all started with (D4L’s) ‘Laffy Taffy.’ When I first heard that song on the radio, I just knew it was a joke, but then I kept hearing it. Every artist has the right to do what they want, but I don’t believe in making that kind of music. It’s disposable. Hip-hop is in cardiac arrest, but I think it’s revivable.”
The topic shifted to Lil’ Kim and her “beef” with the former first lady of Jr. Mafia. According to Eve, there was never any real problem with Kim. Nevertheless, the two rappers sat down to chat and exchange number and we may even see a collabo in the future.
“I used to roll in the car with my high school friends listening to Biggie and Kim. (But we were) not speaking, for whatever reason. When my publicist told me we would be sitting across from each other, I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ There wasn’t any real beef, but I just didn’t want any tension. But we ended up talking, like really talking, for forty-five minutes. We even exchanged numbers. I’d love to do a joint with Kim. I really want to see her come back, you know?”
Going further deep into personal issues, she also spoke about interracial dating.
“I’m going to love who loves me, and if I’m attracted to a person, I’m attracted to them. I’ve had black men say to me, ‘Oh, I heard you were dating a white man.’ It’s like, ‘Have I gone out with (a white man)? Yes. Am I dating someone white? No, but if I was, it would be my choice, so stay out of my business.'”
