Click to listen to Eve's 'Eve (feat. Miss Kitty)'

If you were still wondering, "Who's that girl?" Eve is back to answer your foolish question with a hellacious new song named for herself, from Lip Lock, her first album since 2002. You can now take an exclusive first listen to "Eve," which features Miss Kitty and finds Eve hungrier than ever, unleashing a torrent of lyrical destruction over beat of guttural bass grooves and a twisted, eerie vocal sample that seems to cry out her name. "'Eve' is one of my fave songs on the album," the MC said. "It's in ya face, it's all me. And love the vibe of Ms. Kitty. It's gritty but has a mean bounce." Lip Lock is due out on May 14th.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
