In 1998, she hit the rap scene like a bat out of Philly and was coined the ‘First Lady’ of DMX’s motorcycle rap enthusiasts, the Ruff Ryders.
Today, Eve is recognized as one of the most successful, yet outspoken, female rappers to ever grace the Billboard Hot 100. That candid opinion has also trailed into her personal life, in which she revealed a large portion of on a recent stop by The Angie Martinez Show on New York’s Hot 97.
A large part of the 34-year-old’s interview dealt with her somewhat interesting 3 year relationship with British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper, who just happens to be Caucasian.
Per, The Rap-Up:
On dating a white guy: “For me, it’s weird that I’m with a white dude. Trust me. I look at him sometimes and I’m like, ‘You are so white.’ I’m the first black girl he’s ever been with, so we are learning. … I don’t let him dance. I tell him, look like a pimp, I will dance around you. He can do a lot of things, but he can’t dance.”
On those who criticize her relationship: “I need them to stop. What year is it? … I love black men. It just so happens my heart went this way right now. Who knows? I’m happy.”
On what her boyfriend thinks of her music: “He thinks it’s all cute, which also annoys me. He’s like, ‘Look how cute you are.’ I’m like, ‘No, I was hard.’ He’s real proud. I’ve never been with somebody who’s so supportive in my life.”
Also, the ‘Lip Lock’ entertainer referenced her thoughts on her ex-boyfriend Stevie J, and his newfound ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta’ fame:
On her ex-boyfriend Stevie J and his VH1 show: “I have not watched it. What can I say? I was young and dumb. [My mom] texted me and was like, ‘You dodged a bullet with that one.’”
We’re glad she finally spoke up about her relationship. Furthermore, props to her on the whole ditching Stevie J fiasco. Things have definitely worked out in the ‘First Lady’s’ favor.
