the best (features) of eve: an ontd original

after yesterday's post about the latest development in the she who remains the opposite of a hinged door saga, i wanted to pay homage to the female rappers that came before, set a precedent and yet despite their success remain excluded from the current conversation about the legacy of female rappers for whatever reason.

while this definitely deserves to be a series i'm gonna hot potato that off to one of the posters that can do it justice (lookin' in your direction badtz_m, sandstorm, and stewie_e).

eve jihan jeffers-cooper, b.k.a.: eve, a.k.a.: eve of destruction, a.k.a.: the first lady of ruff ryders, a.k.a.: the laziest stripper ever has (unofficially) retired from music to be the wife and step-mother of four to a billionaire, and co-host of the talk--and who the fuck could blame her? but during her time on the mic, eve made her mark on music and has plenty of hits to prove it. while it would be easy to list her individual artistic accolades, this post will focus on her contributions to others; making good songs even better (and lookin' bomb af while doing it):
