What's not to love about the pitbull in a skirt? Eve Jihan Jeffers is Philadelphia's own home girl who's translated her rhymes and edgy style into Hollywood cache. Grabbing her own self-titled television show and getting the opportunity to make out with Michael Ealy when she played Terri in Ice Cube's "Barbershop," Eve's had it pretty good. As we gear up to see Eve-y Eve at the ESSENCE Music Festival on July 6-8, let's take a look back at her journey.
In 2001 Eve’s sophomore album “Scorpion” debuted, touting the single “Who’s That Girl,” produced by Ruff Ryders beat miner Swizz Beatz. The second single re-connected Eve with her former label head, Dr. Dre, and the pair worked together to record “Let Me Blow Your Mind,” which was co-written by Eve’s then-boyfriend Stevie J and featured No Doubt’s lead singer, Gwen Stefani.
