EVE SAYS "HERE I AM" SNITCHEZ!
A few days ago I was going through my archives and I started pulling out a bunch of music from some of my favorite female emcees of the past like Antoinette, Sweet Tee, Shante’, Salt-N-Pepa, MC Lyte, Finesse & Synquis, etc. It dawned on me at that moment that most of the females rapping these days just don’t move me in that way like their predecessors. Now, there are a few exceptions, but for the most part it seems like female rap has because just another gimmick to sell sex. I like looking at a nice half dressed woman just like the rest of heterosexual males out there, but the overkill of it in videos has become a little annoying to me. Well, maybe not that annoying, but you know what I mean? Basically, if you call yourself a rapper then rap. If you can’t rap and all you want to do is show off your breasts and ass then start a modeling career. It’s possible to be sexy without coming off trashy. Yes, Eve has tried to reveal her boobs to her in the past, but since she wear a negative A cup I won't hold it against the woman! Eve is a perfect example of how a female can be ‘sexassy.’ Sexassy equals 'sexy' plus 'classy' if you couldn't figure it out. Yes, sexassy is a real word when you’re here at SoundNexx. Think of it as me expanding our vocabularies a little. If 'bling-bling' can be added to the dictionary, so can 'sexassy' dammit! So, when you see that word pop up again in the near future, don't act like you've never heard it before.
Anyway, I have always enjoyed listening to Eve of Destruction’s music over the years, but I did get a little worried about her rap career after she did that goofy self-titled sitcom of hers. I didn’t think I would be able to view her in the same way after that, but I saw her recently on some television show performing, and she still had that old swagger. Just last night on the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors show Eve revealed a glimpse of her former self on the stage once again. After seeing her recent performances, I am sort of looking forward to hearing her new album “Here I Am” that has just been pushed back from its original release date of October 16th to some unknown date in 2008. Damn, I hate when that happens! I am assuming that her release date being pushed back has something to do with her lukewarm responses to her first two singles. Personally, I wasn’t feeling those singles either, but I rarely like most singles that drop for some reason. I expect more from the album though. Just in case you give a damn about Eve’s new album, I have posted the tentative track listing below…
