Zip It, Ma.
It took a minute, well, 11 years actually, for Eve to release her fourth album, Lip Lock. Unfortunately, her hiatus did more harm then good.
On her senior effort, The illest pittbull in a skirt, is a shell of her former self. Despite climbing out of adversity on the radio-friendly “Make It Out This Town”, she quickly finds herself in a musical rut (“She Bad Bad” and “Grind Or Die”).
The electro noise on “Keep Me From You” is unbearable, “Mama In The Kitchen” lacks anything appetizing and “All Night” turns into 3 minutes of displeasure. Now that we think about it, 11 years away wasn’t so bad after all.—Big Homie
