Eve Is Back With A New Album And Sets Her Sights On Upcoming Tour — Tha Wire [VIDEO]

Eve dropped her new album Lip Lock in May.  The project was released on Eve’s own label ‘From The Rib’ and is her first album in 9-years. The Philly native, who recently relocated to London, is back and looking to reclaim to top spot in Hip Hop.


Eve has been teasing her comeback to music with the promotional single “She Bad Bad” and its remix featuring Pusha T and Juicy J as well as the album’s official lead single, “Make It Out This Town,” featuring Gabe Saporta, and “Eve” featuring Jamaican artist Miss Kitty, which premiered in April on BET.  Here’s a look at her new single ‘EVE’ feat. Miss Kitty.

Eve said of her comeback, “I’ve definitely evolved musically. Like, my ear is different … But as far as me lyrically, I think people can definitely recognize me and I think people will hear me and be like, ‘D–n, that’s my girl!’.  Especially for people who maybe fell in love with me from the Ruff Ryders days. I still feel like, you know, there’s still enough on this album for them.”

In other news, Russell Simmons is getting back into the record label business believe it or not.  However things are going to be a bit different.  His new label is called All Def Music and it’s aimed at finding, developing and promoting YouTube talent.  Not a bad idea being that there’s so much untapped talent online.  Ironically, All Def Music will fall under the Universal Music Group umbrella, which is also home to his former legendary hip hop label Def Jam.

Anyway, Simmon’s label is the first of it’s kind and already signed it’s first artist, Asher Roth.  Not familiar?  Check this out.  Tell us what you think.

Finally, early this year reports came out that So So Def legend Jermaine Dupri was having some money issues.  Like many celbs, Durpi was having problems with the IRS, but has since paid off a $3 million federal tax lien and the $500,000 lien from the state of Georgia.

Meanwhile, JD is facing a lawsuit from SunTrust Bank claiming he owed a $1.9 million balance from a $5 million dollar loan issued in 2009. In response the So So Def founder has filed an “Answer and Counterclaims” suit alleging that the bank breached its contract with him.  According to the counterclaim, in the original loan agreement SunTrust was supposed to take portions of Dupri’s EMI publishing royalties as loan repayment to cover his Federal and State income taxes. Dupri says the bank never made those payments which caused tax liabilities to be placed on him.

This isn’t the only lawsuit Jermaine is dealing with.  He’s being sued by a car dealership too.  Get the scoop on this and all of today’s juicy details.  Press play to hear Tha Wire now:
