Before she joined Double R, Eve was a part of Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment, AllHipHop noted. That situation frustrated her, she said:

I went from being at home at my mom's house to taking a flight to LA so that I could record a demo to play for Dre. I will never forget after I recorded this demo, Dre heard it and was like, 'Let's make a deal.'

I remember that when I was working with Dre, Eminem did get signed. So I would literally show up to studio sessions that I wasn't supposed to be at, where I knew Dre was going to be, and be like, 'When am I recording? When are you going to put me on a song? What's going on?'

Eventually, Eve said:

I think [Dr. Dre] got sick of that. And I got dropped [from the label] eight months later.

And Eve went on to her own legendary career with a new label...Dre later produced her hit single "Let Me Blow Ya Mind," among other tracks," and the rest is history.
