Long-Time Ruff Ryder, EVE, recently spoke about how she feels about the new female on the block, Nicki Minaj. Even talks about Nicki's launch into a star and how she feels hip hop needs more ladies leading the game and gaining some unity. Eve says that Nicki Minaj is one of many artists who are trying to take control of the game.
"I think she's dope, honestly," Eve said in an interview. "A lot of people, especially since I'm a female, you know how it is with females, a lot of people are like, 'Do you like her?,' and at the end of the day, her music is not for every certain type of female. She caters, I think, to one type of female but at the same time, she's the only person representing for real right now, for females. So, we need that. We need that bond. There's too much testosterone in the game. We gottae c get rid of these dudes, it's like, way too many guys. That's why I'm happy. I'm about to come back out and Trina's on [my upcoming new] record as well. You know what I mean, we need that female influence so I think she's doing her thing. God bless her. I think it's good."
