She spits rhymes, looks fabulous doing it and has followed Queen Latifah's path by crossing over to acting. The two paw print tattoos at her cleavage line seem to say, 'f*ck with me and I'll scratch your eyes out.' But in a playful way. Born Eve Jihan Jeffers on November 10, 1978, and raised in the tough streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, she stripped before linking up with Philly rapper DMX and his Ruff Ryders crew in the late '90s. Her debut album Let There Be Eve peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's 200 charts in 1999 and her two subsequent albums reached No. 1 on the hip-hop charts. She also won a Grammy in 2001 for her duet with ska/pop siren Gwen Stefani 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind.' She starred in her self-titled TV sitcom from '03-to-'06 on UPN and has done movies including two Barbershops (2002, 2004). She is rumored to have dumped the super rich son of Equitorial Guinea's president around '06 -- over his cheating ways and claims that his father tortures political opponents. Oh, that little thing?
