Eve and Dr. Dre

Hip-Hop Rumors: Eve Reveals That She And Dr. Dre "Just Couldn't Get Along"


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

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.

Check out Eve tell the story below on RapFix:

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.”

Good for Eve! Ain’t nothing wrong with a little jungle fever, it is the year 2012 after all!

    Disgruntled bitch shit.

  • therealest1

    Those tattoos of dog paws on the top of her breasts were a stupid idea because it will become a horrendous idea when she gets old. They’re going to look more like dragon or lizard paws when she gets old and her skin starts stretching.

  • thisnigga

    damn….why u so mad? eve probably smashed ur moms in her strippa days

    • therealest1

      Were you referring to me?

  • AK

    thats why you dont have a career anymore dre knows how to market, thats like phil jackson telling you how to win the game and you go and do your own thing, you just dont do that.

    • creative control is very important for an artist. Men try to run females on the daily & that energy is magnified times 100 when you’re dealing w/ producers & ppl in music. Everybody wants to take credit for what God gave you. Women are creative geniuses who don’t appreciate being told how to think, or execute their art. We the ultimate creators on this planet. Respect her gangsta.

      • AK

        I understand creative control and dre is all about that he just wants to bring out the best of it, he aint gonna tell her to go pop how many artists dre blew up from pop bullshit? he does what a producer is supposed to and bring out the best in a artist. If they dont comply they dont have respect for him or know what their doing. Just like ball players have control of what happens in a game, they dont have to listen to the coach but if they do it will get them somewhere.

      • Are you sure Dre is in charge on the distribution & promotion? ahh, never no mind

      • Doc Franchise

        @Adopefemalemc:disqus youre forgetting that Dre is a engineer by nature. Eve doesnt mention that he told he what to write but how to say it. Who doesnt want that type of advice from someone who has the cleanest and punchiest sound in hip hop

      • if ANY of what ya’ll said had any truth, there wouldn’t be an Eve to speak of…she went on to have a great career & when great female emcees are mentioned, she is among them. So, what type of person clowns & berades someone who’s already done it?

      • Doc Franchise

        you speak to the issue yourself. great female mc, with Dre she probably becomes one of the greats regardless of gender. everything I said was fact. name a eve album people go back and listen to right now…….it doesnt exist. good rap career yea, great rap career far from it.

  • Southcidal

    Who is the cornball in the pictures with her? And why are the pictures even posted if the article is about Eve and Dre?

    • Darren Myt Collins

      Thats her multimillionaire boyfriend from England……thats why she ain’t pressed to do no music, he cupcaking her ass

  • remy730

    This article is enough to explain the 2 pictures at the bottom 100%

    • BlackPeople_1

      damn now that is REAL RAP.

  • daveofthematthews

    I like Eve I have liked some of her past work (Music and acting) and i think she has a pretty cool rapping voice But having this attitude will never see her getting to the top of any profession. sometimes you just gotta relax, listen and do what your told and make sure you are paying attention you might just learn something.

  • Doc Franchise

    Let me see.

    D.O.C has arguably one of the best debuts in history
    Snoop has been in the game 20 years (Doggystyle a Classic)
    Em is one the biggest artists ever
    50 Cent has made 300 million
    The Game Documentary is nearly classic
    Kendrick Lamar has one of the Best Hip Hop Albums in years &
    Eve trying to make a comeback that no one is interested in…. She took the L

  • RockyMountainRaider

    Who is her baby daddy?

  • “Love Is Blind” by EVE. PLEASE LOOK THAT VID UP BEFORE YOU HATE. This woman made the last relevant song/vid in female rap to make it to the “big screen”. I’m not saying female emcees don’t make relevant songs, I’m saying this is the LAST we have seen on BET, media outlets addressing real ish that women go thru (ie: rape, abuse, etc). I don’t think anyone can readily dismiss her as an emcee or artist at any time. She has a lot to pull from & deserves her respect.

  • greeneyedbandit

    It’s called constructive criticism……and she wouldn’t have gotten where she was without being critiqued by somebody, strong chick or not! She got a millionaire boyfriend, and gettin ready to have a baby for him, yay!….now all of a sudden she don’t like being told what to do….she really need to turn her ego down a notch!

      you look like a hater

  • dagift

    I RESPECT DRE FOR NOT LETTING EVE RUN HIS SHOW THATS THE PROBLEM TODAY SOCIETY HAVE TOLD WOMEN THEY DONT HAVE TO LISTEN TO MEN NO MORE THAT THEY RUN THE SHOW AND THATS WHY EVERYTHING IS SCREWED UP FROM THE CHILDREN TO THE COURT SYSTEM. SO BIG UP TO DRE AND ANY MAN WHO IS IN LEADERSHIP AND THE AUTHORITY OF GOD AND NOT GONE LET NO WOMAN OR KNOWONE TAKE THAT AWAY!! (THATS WHAT A REAL MAN IS)

  • Mitchell Patterson

    Eve did the right thing leaving Dre. When she left, she went to Ruff Ryder and blew up. Every artist doesn’t respond well to being “molded”. Add to that the fact that Dre pretty much hates women – always has. There’s a reason no female mc has ever made it with him.

    Rakim and Tupac also couldn’t get along with Dre – he’s not everybody’s cup of tea.
