Eve Gives Props to Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks

Fresh off reuniting with DMX at Rock the Bells, Eve caught up with Fuse to discuss the resurgence in female hip-hop. She once again vocalized her support for her fellow femcees Azealia Banks and Diamond.

“I like Azealia Banks,” said Eve of the “212” rapper. “Some of her lyrics are real cute. Plus, she’s in the fashion world. That’s my religion.”

In spite of what rumors may suggest, she has no problem with Nicki Minaj. “I like Nicki, man. People want me to not like her, but there’s nothing not to like. She found a lane and she’s living in it and she’s doing her thing. Why not?”

Eve for one doesn’t pay attention to what others think of her. “I live in a bubble,” she said. “I shouldn’t, but I do. Ultimately, if I worried what people were thinking about me, I couldn’t be who I am. It is what it is. I don’t prove anything to anyone but myself.”

The Philly femcee’s first album in 10 years, Lip Lock, is due later this year. “I’m always chasing me, I’m not chasing nothing else.”
