From the mic to the big screen and back again, Eve is one of many influential rappers to set the tone for a long list of emcees that have come after her. Following the VH1 Hip Hop Honors she joins Sway in the Morning to speak on the special night that transpired.

Telling Sway about her serious nerves before the show she jokes about the size of the teleprompter in the back of the room and doesn’t have much to say about Rich Homie Quan’s fumble, she’s just glad it wasn’t her. Going forward Eve commends VH1 on the way the show was set up and affirms that this is just the beginning, setting the tone for more honors shows in the future.

Going along with the female emcee theme she speaks up on helping younger artists that are just getting in the game. “There’s enough light in this world for everyone,” she says boldly. Seeing her own collaboration with Gwen Stefani come to fruition she talks about their newly started tour and how it still doesn’t feel real. As far as new music goes, Eve assures Sway and the crew that with a new tour comes new music.
