Grammy Award-winning hip-hop star, actress and CBS Daytime host of The Talk, Eve, has sat down with Luc Belaire CEO Brett Berish in a rare interview for part of the French wine brand's "Self Made Tastes Better" video series.

In the 30 minute interview the First Lady of Rap shares her journey from Philly girl to the global music stage.

 Eve recalls her first taste of success was signing with Dr Dre and appearing on the Bulworth soundtrack as Eve of Destruction.

The moment was short lived and she was dropped eight months later, but found opportunity knocking once more with a battle rap for Rough Ryders, which would ultimately lead to her music icon status.

Remembering hearing her first song on the radio, Eve recollects "it was a stop-drop remix from Rough Ryders...
It came on Hot97. That's the craziest feeling". That would be the first of many radio plays as her solo music career took off.  International fame beckoned with the 2001 album release Scorpion, and its first single, "Who's That Girl". The second single, "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" (with Gwen Stefani and produced by Dr. Dre), cemented her pop success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The song won a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and Eve eventually went platinum.

More when you continue..

The First Lady of Rap is set to reclaim her title with new music in the works, "I started recording last year in London...I've been inspired by Afro Beats and Reggae and the hip hop that I hear there. So there's a lot of that in it."

The influence of London in her work is no surprise as the city is now where Eve calls home, since marrying Gumball 3000 super car rally founder and CEO Maximillion Cooper.

Eve's interview follows Gumball's 21st birthday rally from Mykonos to Ibiza. Belaire has been supporting the extravagant event since 2017, helping stars from UK rap artist Giggs to US music artists Usher, Jillionaire and Bun B celebrate their jouney.

Eve gets signed & dropped by Dr. Dre

10:16 "..and then he finished listening to me, like let me rap, and then he called Dre right there and was like, "Yo I think we found our girl." And that next weekend I was in LA recording a demo for Dr. Dre - it was nuts, but then I got dropped 8 months later."

Getting back on her feet
12.26 "I think it was do or die, period. Was I depressed? Yes. Was I like this was my time? Yes. But if you get another call, you got to be ready. Period."

Where’s the sisterhood in hip hop?
15:45 “there is none...there’s a sisterhood missing within hip hop as well, that we don’t hold each other up - enough.” 

Eve’s recording new music
21:35 “I’ve been recording. I started recording last year in London. Everybody on the album so far is from London or Paris or somewhere. Actually, the only American is Dallas Austin so far."

Meeting her husband
24:59 “I’m not a romantic but I remember meeting him and being like, I need to know what he does every day. Like I was more interested in him than I’d ever been in anyone.”
