Rapper Eve, one of the pre-eminent femcees and the onetime First Lady of the Ruff Ryders crew, is beyond frustrated about the delay of her album Lip Lock. But she insists it's out of her hands and her control. It has do with her business changes, such as new management and new label.
The long-gestating and oft-delayed album, originally titled Here I Am, was on hold while Eve battled bosses and execs at her label Interscope. She split with the company and hired new management, and ended up at a new label, but she's still in a bit of a delayed rut.
The album, now titled Lip Lock, has been reworked.
"I need another word for frustration. I've completely gone past frustration 100 times. It's like with anything that you create – you just want to put out. Because it's been so long for me, music has changed so much. It’s beyond frustration. I just really can't wait till this record is out."
She finished, "It was delays on the label side – I've switched management, I've switched labels, I've switched lawyers. And this was over years. And now I feel like the dust has finally settled and the team that I have now is the right team. Sometimes that's all it takes, for the stars to be aligned and the dust to settle. And I think we’re there now."
Eve hopes for a fall release date.
