Before there was Nicki, Remy or Iggy, there was Eve. The “Pit Bull in a Skirt” reigned supreme throughout the ’90s and 2000s, but virtually disappeared from the spotlight after meeting and marrying British businessman Maximillian Cooper some five years ago.

Now it seems the Philly-bred MC is ready for her triumphant return. Currently she can be heard on the Missy Elliot track “I’m Better (Remix)” and told HipHollywood recording the song got her excited to make new music.

“That kind of sparked my whole thing of wanting to get into the studio,” she confessed. “So I’ll definitely be in the studio this year.”

On the Lamb-produced remix which also features Lil’ Kim and Trina, Eve boasts about her lavish lifestyle and still being the baddest chick in the game. “I’m so anti / Winning in life by a landslide / I know you see me, you see me / Your chick wanna be me, but she could never be me.”

Lyrically it would seem much hasn’t changed, so what can fans expect from her sound? Unfortunately she couldn’t say much about the album, or who she’s working with, but did assure fans it would be worth the wait. “It’s in the baby stages, but it will be good, trust me.

In the meantime, those itching for some E-V-E can catch her on the Ruff Ryders reunion tour going down through September.

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
