Eve Jihan Jeffers aka Eve the notable hip-hop rap artist, movie and TV actress and fashion designer is the target of yet another idiot.

Eve, originally from Philadelphia, but who lived for awhile in Bronx, is a smart intelligent survivor.

She started her rap career in a female rap duo, and then after that group disbanded she went solo as rap artist Eve of Destruction and worked for a bit in a club as a dancer.

Thanks to Mase who got her to take her rap career serious, she has become the hip-hop rapper we all know and love as Eve.

Here is a strong black female who has never apologized for who she is; why should she. She has become a role model for young inner city girls who see that this woman has become an accomplished rapper, actress and fashion designer, and has always been true to herself.

Awhile ago there was the picture of Eve that some idiot released on the net. Real or not – who knows, but still it was put out there and every off the wall web site ran with it, making headlines for some idiot trying to discredit Eve, for what ever reason. Shortly after the man or woman tried to extort money from Eve for the picture.

Now there is this 30 sec. video clip on the net. Web sites are running it, talking about it and Eve as if she was in the same arena as Pamela Anderson or Paris Hilton.

The comparison is funny because the one big difference is that Eve is talented and does not have to depend on her body to be who she is.

Eve has worked with some of the hip-hop cultures elite like Dre, DMX (Eve is a Ruff Ryder), The Roots, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Alicia Keys and the list goes on.

She has been in real movies that actually were box office hits – unlike the above mentioned comparisons. She has worked with Ice Cube and in the Barbershop film and has a TV show.

This constant attack on Eve is just another example of when someone makes it you always got the haters or someone willing to try to come at them. That will always be the case; but for the web sites (especially the hip-hop and rap sites who know what talent Eve has) to support this kind of ‘abuse’ of on of hip-hop cultures respected and loved female figures is totally uncalled for. The latest reports according to the “New York Post,” is that the owner of a 30-second video clip has offered a Star magazine writer the footage for $25,000 in cash – it’s all about making money off of yet another respectable hip-hop female.

Web sites and other media outlets that say they support hip-hop culture should not look at this as news and should not in any case run this video or a link to it. It is disrespectful toward Eve and it goes to show how females in hip-hop are treated – in and outside the industry.

The person, or ‘scum bag’, that has released this is not doing anyone a favor – except maybe other ‘scum bags’.

Sure Eve is a beautiful lady, she is a talented lady; but she also deserves our respect. Be it ‘leaked’ pictures or ‘leaked’ videos, we have no way of knowing if they are real or not and either way Eve and others that this has happened to, deserve our support and respect and we all should just not care about all of this and then it would just stop; it needs to stop.

Any site or media source who say they support hip-hop and post or advertise a link for this video should be boycotted by everyone from fans to hip-hop artists and rap artist and movie and TV stars. If sites and media cannot support the people they are suppose to be behind then why should we as fans or them as artists support them.

Respect not only Eve’s right to privacy and a private life, but think about what you would do in her shoes?

Hopefully this latest idiot, who seen fit to release this video, will be  caught and exposed and something will be done to end all this madness and disrespect of not only our cultures female stars but everyone this kind of activity touches in the hip-hop culture.
