Eve Blames Hiatus On Interscope Records

 

Eve’s last solo album, EVE-Olution, came out ten years ago and since then there’s been a severe drought in the female rap arena. Her fourth albumLiplock, has been in the making ever since but it hasn’t come without frustration.

“I need another word for frustration,” she tells Time.com in a recent interview. “I’ve completely gone past frustration 100 times. It’s like with anything that you create — you just want to put out. Because it’s been so long for me, music has changed so much. It’s beyond frustration. I just really can’t wait till this record is out.”

After leaving Interscope in 2010, Eve’s been hard at work on Liplock, but still apparently holds resentment towards Interscope Records for putting a hault on her career. “It was delays on the label side — I’ve switched management, I’ve switched labels, I’ve switched lawyers,” the MC states. “And this was over years. And now I feel like the dust has finally settled and the team that I have now is the right team. Sometimes that’s all it takes, for the stars to be aligned and the dust to settle. And I think we’re there now.”
