In spite of all the fighting that was going on backstage, the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards actually brought me much pleasure. First of all Missy effing Elliot performed!!! And the cyphers brought back some of my favorite rappers of all time and by ‘some of my favorite rappers of all time’ I mean DMX. Sigh. And shouts-out to PITNBR Erica Croce. We may have shared a few good laughs at DMX recently (lmao) but he actually was in rare form, and sounded like a good rapper who is totally not struggling with drug problems, so that was a relief. DMX and E-V-E rounded out the so-called Ruff Ryders reunion (really, they were the only two Ruff Ryders there) and I was so, so excited to hear from Eve! Soon after the awards aired Eve released this new single She Bad Bad, and although it’s not her best work (lyrics are a bit lackluster, though the hook is awesome), I’m just reveling in the fact that Eve is back! Now if we can just get her back in the studio with Missy, the rap game might get some of that feminine fire back. No beef with Nicki, but we need some options here! Check out the song above. You likey? If not, you likey the return of Eve?
