Usually, when Eve is talking about her career, she finds herself defending what has happened. Before the planned release of Here I Am, she signed with Aftermath and Dr. Dre had to stop working with her. She also signed with Geffen Records and they did little to help. Meanwhile, she remained with Ruff Ryders/Interscope.
Eve has been friendly about speaking on the issues, but she has now admitted that the labels lied to her. She said that they made bad business deals and tried to cover them up. Eve said that Interscope intentionally placed a hold on her music career. After eleven years on the label and them starting to lie to her, Eve demanded to get off.
