It’s been a minute since we heard something new from former lady Ruff Ryder Eve, but that’s about to change.

Eve hasn’t had something on the radio since her 2007 hit “Tambourine” or dropped an album since 2002, and that’s mainly because of issues with her former labels Interscope and EMI.

However, label issues are a thing of the past now that she’s started her own… From the Rib Records.  From here on out, it’s full steam ahead and Eve is finally releasing her fourth studio album, ‘Lip Lock.’  Listen to Tha Wire below and find out when Eve's new album will be in stores and what artists will be featured on the LP.

In the meantime here's video for her new single Eve feat. Miss Kitty.  PARENTS BE ADVISED THIS VIDEO INCLUDES EXPLICIT LYRICS.

Gucci Mane plead not guilty to aggravated assault in an Atlanta Fulton County courthouse Monday.  As previously reported the Brick Squad 1017 CEO was arrested in April this year after assaulting a U.S. marine by hitting him over the head with a Champaign bottle.  The soldier was a fan and approached the rapper hoping to get a photo, but instead got his wig split.  Gucci was arrested for the incident, posted $75,000 bond and was released.  However, he was re-arrested a couple of days later for a probation violation.

Find out what Gucci's attorney has to say about this incident and get more details on all of today's juicy details.  Press play now to hear Tha Wire:
