Congrats are in order for Ruff Ryders alum rapper Eve. The Philadelphia native wed her long-time boyfriend British Entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper. The two wed recently in Spain. Lavish right? We love the evolution of the “Love is Blind” singer. The 35-year-old has matured a lot since her beginnings. She exploded on the scene in 1999 with her debut album Let There Be Eve..Ruff Ryders First Lady. She was spitting lyrics about domestic abuse amongst other subjects. She became the third female rapper in history to have her album debut at number one on the Billboard Charts. Thanks to the hot addictive beats of then 20-yea- old Swizz Beats. Eve went on to release three more albums, have her own sitcom and more. For these fabulous accomplishments, Eve is our Woman Crush Wednesday!
Eve recently gave her opinion on the current state of female rap:
“There’s a whole crop of girls that I think is really dope… I wish there was more though. That’s my only problem, I wish there was more females.”
We wish the landscape for females in hip-hop was more broad as well, Eve!
