Scorpion [Clean Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

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 lucidly 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 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 lucidly 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. [The clean version censors the album's profane moments.]

    Dog comes out

    Eve is a great female rapper, her music inspires me in more than one way. Her lyrics are shocking at times but very true. She seems to know what shes talking about because shes been in the game for a while. I really like that song ''whos that girl'' the beat is really good and the video is really tight''cool''. I like her style and the way she dress, she seems to be agressive but in her own unquie way. Though shes not my role model, shes still my favorite female rapper. I think that she should make a video with ja rule because, thier style would look really good together. I like the way she creates image for herself, like riding her bike or in her new video with the scorpion. Her CD is one of the best because not many songs sound alike. People would really enjoy her album if they took time and listen to it.
