Eve of Destruction

Dissed by Dre, rapper Eve teamed up with the Ruff Ryders and struck gold with her solo debut

While Eve doesn't shy from showing off her striking good looks (she often wears low-cut tops that reveal the bear claws tattooed on her chest), she's not as lascivious as much-criticized rappers like Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown, whose tramplike antics get as much publicity as their rapping.

"I believe that what [Lil' Kim, et al.] do works for them," says Eve, who describes herself as a "pit bull in a skirt" in the song "What Ya Want." "Everybody has something that works for them, so I can't knock it. Eve is just worried about Eve. Let There Be Eve is a woman's album, and I'm a regular woman who went through regular problems. I just want people to relate to me."
