Girl, we’ve got our eyes on you.

It certainly seemed a little weird that Eve has started doing quite a few interviews lately for a project we’ve been hearing about for about four years but has never come to pass. She’s also being a lot more open about her relationship with boyfriend Maxmillian and we’ve never heard much about him more than the fact that he’s really wealthy.

But flash forward to the pictures we caught on Necole Bitchie and we are now officially putting Eve on baby watch.  Sure, people gain weight all the time so no biggie there, but we’ve never seen her face so full.  Her clothing doesn’t suggest anything more than cold weather temperatures in the city but that’s also one of the easiest ways to cover up a growing belly.

I see we’re going to have to “stalk” her Twitter account for any possible clues. But she’s no doubt read or heard the rumors so if this is a secret, she might work a little harder to keep it that way. We’d also probably be waiting another 10 years for a single.

We’ll, no doubt, keep you posted!

Rappers, singers and ball players seem to love video vixens, “models” and strippers. while the rest of the world is confused as to what the fascination with them is. My quick assessment: the women that have become famous are pretty. Men with money – especially these young, “new money” stars – like a pretty face and a nice body. I get it and I’m not even mad at it because some of them have found a lane and made even more money from it.

Let’s see who was saved from their sinking ship…

Entourages have always been part of the rap game. But these days, the entourage is part of the act. From Death Row to The Diplomats, hip hop has turned to creating artistic alliances as a way to build business and a strong brand value. Capitalizing on a classic business model, famous artists like Jay-Z and Lil Wayne leverage their own fame to push new artists, thereby expanding their own companies, procuring creativity into the music marketplace and proving their own business hustler savvy.

But as we all know, some business ventures succeed. Some don’t. We collaborated with Erin O’Patton, author of  “Under the Influence: Tracing the Hip-Hop Generation’s Impact on Brands, Sports & Pop Culture”, and founder and principal of branding consulting firm TMG to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a few of the hip-hop families that have come, gone and sustained.
