Eve – American rapper and actress
Eve’s full name is Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper. The future rap star was born on 10 November 1978 in Pennsylvania. Her mother was a publishing house supervisor and her dad worked at a chemical plant. When she was in high school, Eve became very interested in music. She sang in the school choir and joined a teenage band Dope Girl Posse (which was also known as DGP).
The girl group hired a manager. They recorded covers of the songs of such famous bands as Color Me Badd and En Vogue. Then the manager decided to change the band’s format and renamed it ABC. The group was supposed to perform rap. However, they disbanded shortly after. Eve decided to pursue a solo career. She came up with an impressive pseudonym, Eve of Destruction, which later was shortened to Eve.
All these changes in Eve’s life were happening while she was trying to finish high school. As a result, the young singer barely graduated. However, she gained valuable experience in the music industry.
In the late 90’s, Eve’s mother remarried and moved to New York. Eve followed. In Bronx, she found a life-changing job in one of the local strip clubs. In that club, she met a famous rapper Mase, who convinced the young singer to try hip-hop.
