After she graduated from the “Martin Luther King High School” in Philadelphia, Eve began working as a stripper in various night clubs. After she was convinced by fellow rapper, Mase, to stop stripping and begin rapping, she formed an all-female group named “Dope Girl Posse” with her friends, also fellow aspiring rappers.
The group didn’t last long and soon, Eve began pursuing her solo career. In the late 1990s, when she was just getting started in the hip hop world, she began using the name “Eve of Destruction”. In her first-ever appearance on a soundtrack, she took part in the “Bulworth” soundtrack, thanks to which she received an offer to join Dr. Dre’s label “Aftermath Entertainment”. During that time, while working on her debut studio project, Eve collaborated with several established names in the music industry – DJ Clue, The Roots, and Nokio the N-Tity.
