Muze PNote FIRST LADY is the debut album from Eve, a self-described "pit bull in a skirt" and the only female MC in the Ruff Ryders crew. Though she was first signed onto Dr. Dre's Interscope-funded Aftermath Entertainment, her deal expired before she was able to release an album. After working on posse cuts and guest appearances with Ruff Ryders, Blackstreet, DJ Clue, and the Roots among others, she released this album for Ruff Ryders/Interscope.
Muze PNote The killer beats provided by producer Swizz Beatz, along with Eve's straight hardcore flow make FIRST LADY one of the most complete debut hip-hop albums in recent memory. "What You Want," which was first heard on the Ruff Ryders compilation album, had been burning up urban radio stations for months at the time of this album's release. Standout tracks include "Gotta Man," "Philly, Philly," and "Scenario 2000," featuring DMX, the Lox, and Drag-On.

Artist Overview

A Philadelphia native, Eve met Ruff Ryders camp head DMX while in Los Angeles. Impressed with her ability to rhyme, DMX invited Eve to join the Ruff Ryders crew for guest appearances on their debut album. Her photogenic looks and sassy rhyme style earned her instant popularity, which was parlayed into Eve's 1999 debut album. Maturing into a media icon, the stylish, platinum-tressed Eve has since signed a modeling deal, appeared in several fashion shoots, appeared in numerous films, and gone on to be a reigning queen of hip-hop.
