The case of the female rapper has long been a frustrating one. In the last half-decade, the fierce voices that carried the genre through the early 00¿s like Foxy Brown, Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott and Eve have largely remained silent. Eve, who joins DMX during his comeback performance, has established herself in the acting and fashion world. But fans are still yearning for the original ¿pitbull in a skirt.¿ With a flow that could turn from flirty to lethal without warning Eve set the standard for being a queen amongst kings when she made her introduction through as the lone female of the Ruff Ryders (which includes DMX and fellow Rock the Bells performer Jadakiss). Hopefully E-v-e debuts material from the serially delayed fourth album that has been in the works since 2007.
