Remember the night before the first day of school? You had your new, perfect kicks at the foot of the bed, perfectly styled fitted, top, jeans, accessories and just for fun, you threw on that watch you spent all summer working for just to stunt on ‘em. You stare at it all lying on the bed and think to yourself, “I’mma KILL ‘EM tomorrow!” Former Ruff Ryder reps Swizz Beatz and Eve will recreate that feeling for you on Hot Steppa #1, the newest addition to Swizzy’s Monster Mondays series. I can’t lie, since her verse on Luda’s My Chick Bad remix, I been waiting for E-V-E to release some more fire, and she delivers over a Swizz beat that while it could definitely shut the clubs down, is pretty typical of the producer and was probably in his “stock beat” folder for a minute. As you hear towards the end of the song, this most likely won’t make Eve’s forthcoming album, Lip Lock, but if it’s any indication, she might re-open up this whole female MC lane that’s being currently monopolized.
