The Ruff Ryders first lady Eve recently made her comeback to the rap scene, appearing on Ludacris' 'My Chick Bad' remix. Young Money artist, Nicki Minaj, appears on the original version of the Ludacris track, and she's actually one of the most popular, if not the most popular, female in the game right now. Eve recently spoke with Vibe on working with Nicki and spoke on her being competition.
'She definitely is a quirky chick. That's a good word for her,' Eve said in an interview. 'When she had the Freddy Krueger gloves I was like 'Wow.' But at the same time, whatever you decide to do, especially in music, you gotta go hard and own it. You can't be timid wearing Freddy Krueger gloves in a video. If you look insecure, people are going to be like 'Why are you doing that?' You gotta f*cking own it and she did. I think that's dope...Trust me, no one's competition for me and that sounds cocky but I seriously live in such an Eve world. And not in a crazy-everything-is-me-bubble, it's just that I'm bulding an empire. I go on Twitter and people say 'Yo, knock Nicki Minaj out of the box, but ultimately we're all helping each other and I'm happy seeing these chicks in the game. It's too much testosterone. When I see another female, my immediate reaction is not 'Oh I gotta go and get my sh*t right.' I got 900 other things going on. I can't keep worrying about what's coming up behind me.'
Do you think another collab with Eve and Nicki Minaj could happen? Who do you like better? Share your thoughts!
