Almost 5 years ago, Grammy-award winning rapper Eve made her musical come back with her fourth studio album “Lip Lock” and one of the standout tracks was her collaboration with Missy Elliott and newcomer N’cho, “Wanna Be”. The track sees the ladies setting hating-ass bitches straight “I don`t care what bitches say, none of y`all can fuck with me, I`m the bitch you wanna be” over a heavy-bass production, showcasing their super tight flows.

22 year old  Chicago rapper Tink has been killing the underground scene with her mixtapes which could easily been albums already as they see her in her element delivering some raw and edgy material that connects with her fans on a deeper level.
