The Eve-olution Continues
It's rare that anyone in the music industry can be away from producing new music for over a decade, and comeback to pick up where he or she left off. Philly's Grammy-winning hip-hop rap diva Eve is hoping that she will be the exception to the norm, and her new album release after an 11-year hiatus "Lip Lock" will once again place her atop the female rapper throne. Since her prominence in hip-hop has been absent, a great many of female rappers have taken the hip-hop world by storm led by Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, and Angel Haze, all of whom Eve has given props to.
Noting that she has had a full album completed and ready to go some time ago while with Interscope Records, Eve expressed, "I think my album wasn't what the execs were looking for." It took starting her own record label, From The Rib Records, and creative control for Eve to regroup and finally put the thrice-titled project "Lip Lock" out, releasing it in May 2013.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
