Scorpion [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Not since Salt-N-Pepa has a female rapper so skillfully blended femininity with hard-as-nail rhymes. On her sophomore disc, Scorpion, the ever-fashionable Eve -- unlike hip-hop tart Lil' Kim -- is sexy without being overtly sexual and foul-mouthed without seeming vulgar. On the disc's catchy first single, "Who's That Girl?," Eve proclaims, "Little boys hang me on their wall/I grow them chest hair," giving the impression that this self-proclaimed "pit bull in a skirt" is proud of her ability to change boys to men. In fact, throughout Scorpion -- named after Eve's highly sensual and easily angered zodiac sign -- it's evident the Philadelphia filly has gone through her...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Not since Salt-N-Pepa has a female rapper so skillfully blended femininity with hard-as-nail rhymes. On her sophomore disc, Scorpion, the ever-fashionable Eve -- unlike hip-hop tart Lil' Kim -- is sexy without being overtly sexual and foul-mouthed without seeming vulgar. On the disc's catchy first single, "Who's That Girl?," Eve proclaims, "Little boys hang me on their wall/I grow them chest hair," giving the impression that this self-proclaimed "pit bull in a skirt" is proud of her ability to change boys to men. In fact, throughout Scorpion -- named after Eve's highly sensual and easily angered zodiac sign -- it's evident the Philadelphia filly has gone through her own transformation since she dropped her 1999 debut, Let There Be... Eve. Eve's close-cropped blonde tresses are now cherry-bomb red. And lyrically, the rapper is more open with her fans, from sharing the hurtful details of her turbulent relationship with hip-hop producer Stevie J. on "You Had Me, You Lost Me" to testifying about the ups and downs of success on "Life Is So Hard," which features R&B legend Teena Marie. With the hard-hitting Scorpion, Eve emerges as hip-hop's reigning queen, and guest appearances by her Ruff Ryders posse Drag-On, the Lox, and DMX make her sting even deadlier.
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
When Eve debuted in 1999, she surprised many as one of the few female rappers capable of attaining both popularity and respect without having to take on a sleazy role or sacrifice any of her muscle. In fact, her muscle seemed to be what impressed the rap community most. If anything, Eve brings even more muscle to her follow-up album, Scorpion. Her rhymes flow just as smoothly here as they did on her debut, and she sounds even more confident than before. Given her ensemble cast of producers and guest rappers, she probably should sound confident. When you have Swizz Beatz and Dr. Dre handling the better part of your album, along with a few other tracks handled by Ruff Ryder producers Teflon and DJ Shok, there isn't need to worry -- you know the beats are going to be cutting-edge. In terms of guests, the Ruff Ryders DMX, Drag-On, and LOX make their expected cameos. On paper, everything looks great -- more muscle, top producers, and top rappers. And the results are just that: great. A few songs really stand out here: the lead-off single "Who's That Girl?," a Teflon track with a quick tempo and an extremely catchy chorus; "Let Me Blow Ya Mind," a Dr. Dre/Scott Storch track with an unmistakable 2001 sound and a smooth R&B chorus featuring Gwen Stefani on backup vocals; and "Life Is Hard," a unique soulful moment late in the album with Teena Marie contributing a diva chorus and Eve dropping some heartfelt lyrics. At 16 tracks, this album doesn't overreach and really doesn't have too many surprises. There are a few flawed moments where the choruses aren't as catchy as they intend to be, but for the most part Eve plays it safe. If you liked her first album, you'll like this one even better.

    Who's That Girl?

    Very sexy and slick but without trying too hard. A very sharp and direct album. Some of the songs I didn't care too much about but I like Eve's style. Feels like you're right in Philly with her. Very classy and sophisticated. A lot of divas can take a lesson from her.

    Eve is my number #1 role-model she drops the hottest lycris, and she has the baddest attire. I feel Eve has never went down she has always kept it real and she is expressing true elements in life. Eve all I have to say is Keep Doing It Up Danielle Harris 17, Danville Virginia
