Eve: "Who’s That Girl?"

**THIS PROGRAM IS SOLD OUT** 

The definitive autobiography from Eve, the multiplatinum, Grammy Award–winning, Emmy-nominated rapper, singer-songwriter, actor, mother, philanthropist, and entrepreneur.

In 1999, Eve Jihan Cooper made history with her solo debut album, Let There Be Eve…Ruff Ryders’ First Lady, reaching number one on the Billboard 200, marking her as the third female rapper to ever obtain that position. She later made history again as the first recipient ever of the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for her platinum single “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” with Gwen Stefani. Following up with three chart-topping albums that made unrivaled waves in the world of hip-hop and music, as well as trailblazing moments in TV/film and fashion, Eve now looks back on her groundbreaking career.

West Philadelphia was not for the faint of heart—Eve knows that better than anyone. However, she navigated those Philly streets (and later the rest of the world) seamlessly, though it was not without strength and resilience. She incorporates that unbridled ambition into every bar that she writes and every stage/set that she stands on. With a gritty realness that speaks to her style, she shares her experiences going from the Mill Creek Projects to Hollywood. In this memoir, Eve delves into her entrance as "Eve of Destruction" into a male-dominated hip-hop industry, the deeper story behind Scorpion that was never told until now, and the internal battle with her music, her label, and herself after Lip Lock. 

This fearless, empowering, and inspirational memoir from hip-hop sensation Eve explores her rise to stardom as a female MC, her lasting legacy on pop culture and music, and her incredible yet enduring struggle balancing her personal life with her professional one.
