Just after Eve The Rapper had completed high school, she moved to New York. She ended up as a stripper in a club. Probably, this is one part of her life she doesn’t like to discuss. Factually, the rapper seemed to not be happy with her choice. She returned to music and got so serious with it for good. Eve The Rapper chanced on a break when she was 18 years when her friends organized an audition with the record producer, Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre finally signed her unto Aftermath Entertainment with the name Eve of Destruction. Her presence at the record label did not favour them as much as they thought. Her contract with the record label ended within a few months. She said during an interview with Newsweek in the year 2001;
“Dr. Dre did not know what to do with me”.
Even with the complications, the rapper’s song she recorded for the label ended up as a soundtrack for the film ‘Bulworth’ released in the year 1998. The song was her first-ever music achievement.
After Dr. Dre’s label had taken their hands off the rapper, Dr. Dre introduced her to the Ruff Ryders record label and she was signed. She worked really hard to prove her worth. According to her ‘It was like a boot camp‘. She added during her interview with Vibe that “They really put me through it as far as being able to write my own music, just like all the other dudes”. At that time, Ruff Ryders was in a male-dominated hip hop world. The label didn’t also consider treating her as their first female artiste. She was treated just like everyone, precisely, they meant business. Ruff Ryders label had top legends like DMX, Swizz Beats and Jadakiss. She said;
“I have always appreciated that they never looked at me mule ‘Oh, she’s the girl of the group. They treated me as equal”.
It was in the year 1999 that the rapper released her first single which she titled ‘What Y’all Want‘. This track featured Nokio the N-Tity of Dru Hill. After its release, the song shot up to hitting No.29 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 Chart. It also ranked at No.1 on the Hot Rap Songs Chart. ‘Let There Be Eve…Ruff Ryders’ First Lady’ was Even The Rapper’s first album she released on 14th September, 1999. In the first week of its release, the album sold over 213,000 copies. It was then certified with double platinum. It sold over 2million copies entirely. Since 1996, Eve The Rapper has released 4 successful albums to her credit.
