E-V-E is preparing for a musical comeback…again, but don’t expect her to get into the studio with production genius Dr. Dre. Before signing with Ruff Ryders, Eve’s first record deal was with Dr. Dre and Aftermath. That deal didn’t work out, and now we finally know why.
In a recent interview with Sway on MTV’s RapFix, Eve reveals that the real reason behind her and Dre’s split is very simple – the two just couldn’t get along. Check out what she said below:
“Aftermath was my first home with Dr. Dre but me and Dre just couldn’t get along.” Eve said. “I’m a strong chick and I don’t like being told what to do. I don’t care if you’re the best at what you do.”
The two did eventually work together on Eve’s top charting hit with Gwen Stefani, “Let Me Blow Your Mind”, but imagine all of the amazing music those two could have made together. Don’t get it twisted, though. Eve had an amazing career with Ruff Ryders and even branched out into TV with her own show “EVE” and movies, with scene-stealing appearances in Barbershop. So things worked out just fine for the both of them.
Dr. Dre is a perfectionist when it comes to music. That’s probably why Detox will never see the light of day. Dre is also known for putting a lot of pressure on his artists, and according to Eve, “Dre just knows how to push your buttons, but I just have to say every time he pushed my buttons, he got the best out of me. So he knew what he was doing.’”
Eve tells a really funny story about Dr. Dre making her say the word “block” over 40 times in the studio because he didn’t like the way she was saying it. She just coudn’t take it, and threw a glass of water.

In related news, Eve is rumored to be pregnant with her first child. The rapper has been dating millionaire Maximillion Cooper for three years and told HOT 97’s Angie Martinez earlier this week that even she is surprised that she’s “dating a white dude.”
“Trust me. I look at him sometimes and I’m like, ‘You are so white.’ Seriously! Yes, I gotta be real like that. I’m the first black girl he’s ever been with, so we are learning. Trust me, he’s been through ‘Weave 101.”
