Eve said that there are “a lot of clones” in the hip-hop business right now.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” was a very famous rap song. She says that there are “some dope artists” out there, but that the level of “uniqueness” in the business has gone down since she was at the top of her game.
On “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” the star of “Queens” said, “I hate how many clones there are. I think that in the past, differences between people were honored. At the moment, I feel like a lot of things are the same, which is just “meh.” It makes things boring and dull. In no way! Because I love so many great singers.
The American musical thriller “Queens” features the 42-year-old actress as Brianna “Professor Sex.” In this episode, four singers in their 40s get back together to try to bring their careers back from the dead. Eve says that she wishes the “purity” of old-school hip-hop had been kept.
“Well, 90s Hip-Hop, I’m sorry, but in the 1990s and 2000s there was a movement,” she said. I know that halp-hop will always be good.
It was different and pure in some way. Since there were so many competing groups and, um, activities going on, I think that the mood was pretty good at the time. I think that people who grew up during that time will enjoy our show a lot if we can make them feel nostalgic about that time. Not only were the women hot, but so were the songs.
Even though Eve came out more than 20 years ago, she has said in the past that she is saddened by the problems that female rappers face.
“It’s crazy that we’re still talking about this from when I came out,” she said. Why? I have to say, that really irritates me. Stay strong, is what I’d say. We need quiet and peace. The thoughts and work of women are very important. It can’t just be a bunch of guys out there, though. Have faith; in fact, have more faith than you have ever had before. Younger people have one thing going for them that I don’t: you don’t need a fancy title to get noticed. It’s great that you can build a following on social media in so many ways. I needed help from a lot of people if I wanted to do well.
