Eve, Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders' First Lady (1999)

Label: Ruff Ryders / Interscope

Kreayshawn: “This was one of the first female rappers that I was really into. This is on some other shit. I was pretty into Eve, she’s like my alter ego. It was crazy because she’s from Philly and my family’s from Philly. Every time I think about it, I’m like, ‘What if I was in Philly? I’d be like Eve.’

“I was super young when I was listening to it. There’s some inspirational [songs on there]. There’s that ‘Love Is Blind’ song, which is like an anthem for women. When listening to that as a kid, you’re like, ‘Oh God, love is blind! You can get beat up by your man and not even know it’s wrong!’”
