In ’99, Eve‘s lyricism and Philly edge hit hip-hop hard.
The pit bull in a skirt’s tough appearance – comprised of paw prints tatted on her boobs, cornrows, du-rags, and one of the meanest mean mugs in rap history – is forever cemented in our brains, as is her music. Ruff Ryders‘ first lady was one of a kind, competing in the industry with hits like “Love Is Blind,” “Gangsta Lovin’,” “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” and “Who’s That Girl?,” an international success.
My, how times have changed.
So, here are 26 throwback photos of Eve…because, Thursday.
