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.
Joining the Queen of Hip Hop Soul for a duet on her sixth album “Love & Life,” Eve contributes a few angry bars on “Not Today.” Here are the pair in 2004 on the “Not Today” video set.
Following the release of “Eve-Olution,” the Philadelphia native’s fans had to be content with featured bars and film and television guest roles as Eve worked through label drama after returning to Interscope Records and beginning work on her fourth album.
