Eve Talks New Album, Azealia Banks, & Nicki Minaj with ‘The Breakfast Club’

Eve

Eve stopped by “The Breakfast Club” on Power 105.1 and faced all sorts of questions from Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God, and DJ Envy. The Philly raptress, who is dating British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper, dished on her love life and her first album in over 10 years, Lip Lock, due May 14.

“I feel like a new artist,” said Eve, who reflected on how the game has changed since she released her last album Eve-Olution in 2002.

She also shared her thoughts on Nicki Minaj and spoke about a proposed collaboration with Azealia Banks.

While Eve claims that Azealia turned down the offer to collaborate, Azealia tells a different story. “Def never even received a memo about collaborating ! Def never turned you down,” tweeted the “212″ hitmaker. “Missed opportunities.”

E-V-E didn’t have any hard feelings, tweeting back, “Def down to do a hot record.”

Check out highlights from the interview below.

On the mixed response to her first single “She Bad Bad”: “I could have put out another record. I have a record that sounds kinda like ‘Tambourine.’ I didn’t want to do something that ya’ll already heard from me because what’s the point. I’ve been away so long. Even if you didn’t like it, at least you were talking about it.”

On Azealia Banks: “I like her wordplay. I think she actually can rhyme, I just don’t like the drama. That bothers me. …. [Asks someone in her camp] Didn’t we try to holler at her? I think she might have been one of the ones that was like, ‘I think I’m busy.’ She was doing her thing and poppin’, so it could be that.”

On the camaraderie in hip-hop: “I think girls should stick together, but it ain’t like that.”

On Nicki Minaj: “It’s not all my cup of tea, but I’m proud of her. I don’t know her, but she’s doing her thing. You can’t be mad at that. You can’t hate on someone that’s successful. That’s just stupid.”

On Lip Lock: “If it flops, I’ma be mad, but it ain’t gonna stop me from ever going back in the studio.”

    @QueenBeyonce, Oh please. How many of these girls already said slick stuff about Nicki Minaj? Lil Mama, Keys, Banks, Missy, Kim, T-boz etc. Every time these chicks get an interview they always asking them about the overall mother NICKI MINAJ!

    Well Eve, get ready to go back into the studio because you’re about to have a catastrophic flop.

    [Reply]

    T Reply:

    @T, And that’s the problem with the game now. Everybody is so focused on “selling” and worried about flopping that they don’t just put out dope body’s of work! I wasn’t feeling Eve’s answer at all! “I’ma be mad?” I realize that’s the name of the game but what about “I’ll be mad but at Least I put out great music and a project I put my all into”?

    Once again I realize that everybody comes in the game to sell but don’t let that be your sole focus. Put out an album you can be proud of no matter if it flops or not and if it does put your hustle cap on and grind. Tour, sell merchandise. This need for excess versus enough truly bothers me.

    T Reply:

    @T, but then again I know these Stan’s are to blame. They don’t even realize that Stan wars and the whole concept of favs, stanning, and the like are industry boosted as a plot to sell more records & inspire negativity. BOTTOM LINE. Smh. You don’t find it funny that the main thing a Stan can brag about is who’s a “flop” aka doesn’t sell any records, win any awards etc. if only they knew the truth…

    @T, Agree. The sad thing is these stans call themselves rep’n for their fav, a person they will NEVER make contact with, will never meet, and will never add any real value to their life. Nicki’s fans are the worst! They on every post watching these female rappers as if they guarding Nicki’s spot and they rarely get 2 tweets in a row from Nicki.

    @seaofluv, Don’t blame the Barbz for “beign the worst fanbase”. There are too much people against Nicki and us (the Barbz). It’s annoying when haters put stupid arguments like “her fanbase is whole of 12 years old” or “her 15min of fame are over” I can go all night. Put more attention in posts of the other rappers. The “fans” are the ones that are ALWAYS putting the name of Nicki. Just look at Beyoncé conference about her lip-sync, Nicki has nothing to do with that yet people enjoy talking about the flaws of Nicki. As all fanbases, we have stupid people with us but I think that the other fanbase have or too much stupid fans or too much Nicki-haters or too much pressed fans.

    @seaofluv, Actually ALOT of Nicki’s fans seen her more than once and been backstage with her more than once. I’ve seen her face to face like 4 times. She even gave me a nickiname and a hug. Your fav probably don’t love you and she does tweet us all the time and we be having our own little convo’s about idol and other stuff and when she doesn’t tweet we know that she’s either resting or cooking up something because at the end of the day she is a working women and she keeps us fed. Unlike your fav. So don’t try to come for Team Minaj.

    I love how Eve defended “She Bad Bad”, and how she respected the actual Queen. Nicki should collaborate with this girl and help her being back in the scene (like she helped Alicia Keys)

    Can’t believe Azealia was shady to EVE when she want a verse from her.

    Azealia needs to be humbled quick! Just wow at this btch

  12. Jessica

    Azealia has so much talent but she isn’t gonna get far with her attitude. Its foul. It’s too early for her head to be this big

  13. Jessica

    And why does Nicki never work with her fellow female rappers?? Yeah she’s worked wit Trina but cmon she isnt exactly a threat to Nicki and shes knows it

    @Jessica, Nicki is still new to the game

    [Reply]

  14. channelPink

    She didn’t say she didn’t like Nicki Minaj she just isn’t a fan of her pop records but she did say she loved hearing her on records like Girl On Fire. She almost said “I Love Her” too. I peeped. It’s never bad blood with EVE. SO i’m cool with it. and I also do agree that these chicks will be feeling like new artist when they start getting back into the game.

    I love Eve but I wish she never mentioned anything about her album flopping because now you know everyone is going to rip her apart if it does which it will like everyone else. I hope she sticks to May 14th as the release date.

    I finally just watched this interview and I love Eve’s personality. She is so laid back and flop or not, she is SET FOR LIFE. She could quit right now with the biggest smile on her face. I can’t wait to hear her new song, “Make It Out This Town.”
