New Music: Riddim Commission f/ Eve – ‘Why Would You Stop’

Eve

The honeymoon is over. Eve, who wed British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper last month, gets back to business on her first release as a married woman. The Philly rapper experiments with a new sound on “Why Would You Stop,” a collaboration with London-based DJ/production duo Riddim Commission.

E-V-E gets the club fired up while spitting over an electro-house beat, which is destined for club domination.

“She’s a progressive artist, so she knows what’s hot, she knows what’s dope, and she’s willing to explore and take risks,” one half of the duo, DJ Swerve, said of Eve.

Did the risk pay off? Listen to E-V-E switch up her flow (starting at the 6:52 mark).

    YES E-V-E!!! I am so here for this track right here OMG. Made me love Pop for a while. Damn Eve yes! I mean, the originality of it, Eve not being afraid to step out of her comfort zone & what she’s used to is so inspiring. You gotta respect that about her. You can’t keep her down. Now all we need is a nice mixtape ( a little preview of the next project) & the new tv show. I LOVE EVE!!! Keep doing ya thang Mama Eve! Great track!

    This is wack and she straight up stole Azealia Banks sound and flow. I can’t stand these old female rappers. They’ve had their time in the game already and need to sit their asses down somewhere. lol

    @Still I Rise!, I understand about the sound it’s familiar to Bank’s but Eve snatched that beat and ran with it, flipped it and mastered it better you can hate all you want. If you don’t like Eve and have a problem with the Legendary female rappers don’t comment at all or listen to them. BYE !!! HATERS GONNA HATE #GRINDORDIE !

    @-, child bye…. u must be young,dumb,and still wet behind the ears bcuz singers and rappers been using electro house beats for years. Hell even eve have experimented with it b4 so this shit ain’t new. Eve likes Azealia so why would she have be scared to spit over a beat azealia does? This Dj/producer asked Eve to do this song. Why should she turn down money or an oppourtunity? Ur fave nicki have stole from all the past female rap legends and passed it off as if it was new. Hell she stalked lil kim.

    Now what now? Reply:

    @-, Why are you so mad, though, really?

    And if she did bite her style, maybe she can actually, you know, make it work, since that other female stays too busy beefing and attempting to beef rather than doing her JOB!

    —-

    That said, this track doesn’t touch me at all. So generic, though I like Eve.

    Nicki Minaj is miles better than Eve :O

    “OMG You Niki fans are always on other female rappers posts just to hate and blah blah blah you’re just jealous because Eve is about to slay Nicki blah blah blah”

    @Andy, And your point was…? I’m a huge Nicki fan too, but damn, why the fuck you have to bring her up? This is why her and her fanbase is hated so much. Some of y’all insecure fans just down other female rappers just to down them. I don’t know why it’s so hard to like other female rappers. Y’all acting like each female rapper is just throwing shot after shot after shot at Nicki. Damn, this is an article about E-V-E, not Nicki.

    @Andy, Stop! I bet you are a young immature child who only stans for Nicki. It wouldn’t hurt to listen to another female rapper. Eve is solidified ! CUT THE BULLSHIT I KNOW YOU LIKE THIS TRACK !!!

    Now what now? Reply:

    @Andy, Your comment (though troll-like) is proof-positive that real hip-hop is dead. When a thirsty, exhibitionist, nasal-voiced, blasphemous, tacky, hypocritical, naturally-occurring clown that lazily appeals to the lowest common denominator every…single…time is seen as “better” than an actual rapper, the coffin has already been nailed shut. She isn’t “better” because she simply isn’t comparable.

    This song by Eve is not hip-hop either, but at least she’s a real rapper, not a gimmick. And why are Nicki fans so obsessed and insecure? That woman canNOT prop up your own inadequacies when she cannot properly deal with her own. Some of y’all really are a reflection of her, or maybe it’s the other way around. Go ahead and curse about it, though.

    Old MC’s need to give it up???? You does your broke ass!

    EVE smashed the dance beat years b4 WhorMinaj! You need to go look at ‘My Bitches’.

    This sounds 1000x better than Banks… How can you even put Eve in the same fake, psychotic, untalented level as Ikk??

    FOOLS!

    Every Time a female rapper does something Barbz always want to come and show the up-most hate. Eve is a legendary artist who can blend in with every genre. Eve and Nicki are two different artists last time I checked this post was about E-V-E

    @Lahj Robinson, it don’t matter,if she did it once are twice the bottomline is she did it f-ck you,who are you calling a hater.people like you are always tearing down other female rappers one in particular, but when people call out y’all favs on some jacking sh!t y’all want to cry hater. Eve jack banks sound simple as that.

    Lahj Robinson Reply:

    @-, I’m not tearing down the other female rappers I’m probably one of the only ones who want to see unity all we were doing was complementing Eve on a job well done I love female rappers and if you talking about Nicki Minaj you’re wrong I like Nicki I just don’t like some of her simple-minded delusional ass fans… Eve did electro and dub step way before Azealia’s arrival check Eve’s discography she wasn’t being lazy for 11 years she was overseas killing the club scene !

    she tried this with that ‘Just watch me’. A lot more successful than her last album.

    One Thing:

    Azealia Banks won’t be feeling you trying to cross over in her lane and using a boring ass flow trying to be her either.

    [Reply]

    Lahj Robinson Reply:

    @stannnny, OMG THE ANGER SIT YA ASS THE FUCK DOWN !!! She isn’t biting Azealia’s style she decided to jump on this dubstep type track… Eve is Hip-Hop and she’s done Pop/Electro/Club all that shit years ago long before Azealia dude check Eve’s discography she had a crazy dubstep song a few years back she was overseas killing the club game and you’re just hearing this song BYE HATER !!!

    This is not bad for being an experimental song. It makes sense since EVE has been living in Europe for the past few years.

    Shutterbug Reply:

    @Lahj Robinson, And the street spitters want the femcee game back! Seriously, it every bit as much a minstrel-show act when Kim did it as it is when Nicki did it.

    Lahj Robinson Reply:

    @Shutterbug, I want real female rappers around Nicki is cool but no bars her metaphors are okay but it’s repetitive Eve is a great rapper she’s very gifted MC she’s actually more lyrical than Kim , Nicki, Trina, ! Eve can roll with the big dogs ! Remy Ma is a dope rapper too so is Lady Luck Rapsody but we never hear them because their not selling a brand !

    For all you Azealia Banks fans…you know NOTHING! Eve has been doing this type of rap for YEARS!!! You might want to take a look at her credits….Groove Armada, Fatboy Slim, Wolfgang Gartner, Mstrkrft. Do your homework before you throw your shade for take shots…Morons.

    E-V-E went awwf on this track tho!! We’ll done!
