Eve Invades Footaction


USA has teamed up with Eve, Ruff Ryders' award-winning rap artist,

for the grand opening of the new Footaction store in Elizabeth,

N.J. on November 11. Eve will sign autographs during her appearance

and will give away 500 CD samplers featuring songs from her upcoming

release ``Scorpion.''

During the grand-opening event,

customers can sign up to ``Win a Day with Eve,'' spending time

with her as she promotes her new release. Eve is the first female

rapper to enter Billboard Magazine's Top 200 at #1.

The grand-opening celebration will

also include an appearance by ``Big Tigger,'' host of BET's ``Rap

City.'' ``Hot 97'', New York's #1 hip-hop radio station, will
