Eve will tell the story of her life and career as a rapper and actor in a memoir, People magazine reports.
Hanover Square Press will publish the musician’s Who’s That Girl?, co-written with Kathy Iandoli (Baby Girl: Better Known as Aaliyah), this summer. The press describes the book as a “fearless, empowering, and inspirational memoir.”
Eve, born Eve Jihan Cooper in Philadelphia, started her career in rap under the name Eve of Destruction, contributing vocals to tracks by DMX and the Roots. She released her debut album, Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders’ First Lady, in 1999; the record featured the hit singles “Gotta Man” and “What Ya Want” and went double platinum.
She went on to record three more studio albums, most recently 2013’s Lip Lock, and acted in films including Barbershop and Whip It. She was a co-host of the daytime talk show The Talk from 2017 to 2020.
In her memoir, Hanover Square Press says, Eve “explores her rise to stardom as a female MC, her lasting legacy on pop culture and music, and her incredible yet enduring struggle balancing her personal life with her professional one.”
Eve announced her memoir on Instagram, writing, “Y’all, I am excited to announce my autobiography ‘Who’s That Girl?’ is coming out on September 17th. It’s been a journey down memory lane and I can’t wait for you all to read it.”
