Eve Talks Being A Female Rapper In A Male-Dominated Field (VIDEO)

When rapper, songwriter and producer Eve appeared on HuffPost Live this week, she was very hopeful about the future of women in rap. She told host Marc Lamont Hill: "There's a whole crop of girls that I think is really dope... I wish there was more though. That's my only problem, I wish there was more females."

Eve also discussed her experiences as a female MC in a male-dominated world, and how she no longer believes that a woman needs a group or a male backer to find fame.

"At the end of the day, talent is talent, and I think these girls can come up on their own. I won't believe that you need a dude to co-sign."

Watch the clip above to see what else Eve had to say on the subject, and check out the full HuffPost Live segment here.
