Eve Was Once Signed To Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Label, ‘I Got Dropped 8 Months Later’
“I got dropped eight months later and was back in Philly.”
As for how she got Dr. Dre’s attention, it was all thanks to weed. She recently shared that her managers at the time were well-known drug dealers, so they told her to pretend to be the “weed girl” to sell Dr. Dre weed when he came to Philly. She said she asked her friends,
“What the hell am I going to do when I got no weed?”
They told her,
“[We’ll] just put some music on, and you start rapping.”
She continued and said,
“So we got to this house .. I stood up, they put a tape in, and I started rapping. And the guy was like, ‘What the f***.Where’s the weed?’?”
But it ended up working out for her, at least for the time being.
“He finished listening to me, he let me rap, and then he called Dre right there and was like, ‘I think we found our girl.’ That next weekend, I was in LA recording a demo for Dr. Dre.”
See her comments at the 9:30 mark.
Of course we all know she later found success with the Ruff Ryders label. She released hit songs like Who’s That Girl and Love Is Blind.
Now, she’s living it up as a host of The Talk on CBS.
