During her appearance the festival, the female rap vet took some time out to chat with HipHopWired.com backstage… and revealed that her long awaited next album, entitled Lip Lock, is definitely coming next year, with a single dropping before the end of 2012.
“Yes so I left EMI, it was gonna be through EMI, now my deal’s through Sony Red. Still independent and the album will be out next year,” Eve tells the website. “It’s still called Lip Lock and ya’ll will hear a single before the end of the year. So finally, sh**.”
Eve also expressed her excitement in regards to performing on stage with DMX that evening, saying: “First of all I’m just happy to see him. That’s my dog and we haven’t been on stage since like 2001, 2002 maybe. That’s gonna be exciting. I think we’re both gonna be like, ‘Aww you so dope.’ So it’ll be fun.”
Lip Lock is slated to be Eve’s fourth studio album.
