An album by Eve

Upon her1999 debut release, Eve Jeffers described herself as "a pit bull in a skirt," but each of her subsequent albums have allowed hip-hop's favorite bombshell to successfully upgrade her image. At this point in her career, Eve is reppin' for the smart … see full wiki

Eve is one smart and stylish urban female.

When this album first came out it was constantly on rotation on my CD player. Eve just simply commands respect on this album. Tracks like "Let This Go," "Satisfaction" and "Neck Bones" let you know she is not to be messed with. Attention all other female rappers: Don't pick up the pen or the microphone unless you are 100% sure you can spit comparable to Eve. The "Ruff Ryder's' First Lady" has always displayed a certain sense of class and grace not found in work by certain other female rappers.

Eve had broadening her talent in music and she hasn't been restricting herself to the same old Hip-Hop beats and hi hats. "Eve-olution" clearly proves that. She rhymes on beats different from the usual rap beats and she does it well. Her collaborations with Swizzbeatz, Dr.Dre, The Lox, Truth Hurts, Alicia Keys, and others help this album come on top.

The first collaboration with Dr. Dre on the album is 'What' and the beat sounds like one taken off the chronic and is a typical Dr. Dre beat good all the same and it matches perfectly with Eve's rhyming skill. "Party in the rain" produced by Swizz beatz is something new completely. It will probably take a few listens in order for you to get used to it. It's good though because it portrays Swizz beatz broadening imagination via music creation and also shows Eve to have an ability to rhyme on even the weirdest beats. "Gangsta Loving" no doubt is one of the best but probably the best tune on this album is "Double R What" where Eve raps alongside Fellow Ruff Ryder's Jadakiss and Styles, but my personal favorite would be "Figure You Out" because of the smooth rhythms she throws with Teflon is really nice.

Eve can seriously hold it down on her own if she choose to. The issues she speaks of varied topics---love, jealousy, and hope, but the album is not preachy and does not take itself too seriously. From the intro to the end the songs from this album are strong and ear catching. It's perfect for a partying, starting out your weekend or evening off right.

This "Pit bull in a skirt" shows she's one hell of a force to be reckoned with on "Eve-olution." It's good to see that Eve knows how to stay true to her street roots and has taken her mainstream success in stride. Certainly worth having.
