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 2007, Eve was charged with driving under the influence and arrested after smashing her Maserati into a cement divider on Hollywood Boulevard. Since then the MC/actress has stayed out of trouble and is working on a new album to follow her singles, like 2007’s “Tambourine.”
Here is Eve posing in London’s Covent Garden neighborhood in 2011.
