Turns out the boss was right:

Rick Ross did NOT father a secret child in Florida three years ago -- so says the results of a court-ordered DNA test in the rapper's recent paternity case. TMZ broke the story ... 36-year-old Tyrisha Childers filed a paternity lawsuit against Ross last year -- claiming the rapper knocked her up a few years ago ... and never paid a dime for child support.(TMZ)

D*mn. The search continues for the father of this hip hop love child, who is now three years old.

The hip-hop heavyweight was hit with legal papers last year (11) from Tyrisha Childers, who alleged she has a three-year-old son by Ross and the star had never paid any maintenance. Ross offered to take a paternity test to prove he was not the father, and was adamant the woman, from Georgia, was mistaken - and now he's been proven right.(Contact Music)

In other news ... remember former Ruff Ryder spitter Eve? It's been over a decade since her last solo LP dropped, but the Philly femcee says she's been in the lab and is more than ready to make her return to rap. In addition to announcing her new music, she gave a shotout to a couple fellow female rappers in the game, giving NYC newcomer Azealia Banks a super co-sign.

I actually really like Azealia Banks. I like her style, I think she's really cute, I think lyrically she's really good and she's really different. She's probably at the top of my list. But then there's a girl named Diamond who is from Atlanta who I really like, just as a person and an artist, I think she's really cool.(Time Entertainment)

She went on to describe her new sound, which she says is a fusion of her RR glory days with a refreshing new style she's picked up during her many travels abroad.

I wanted to really take what people loved of me and fell in love with in the beginning, with the Ruff Ryders and all of them, and combine it with where I am now. As far as my ear with music now, because I traveled so much, I think musically my ear has grown. And then lyrically obviously I think I've grown. Hopefully people will feel that. Hopefully my core audience won't feel like I've left them behind. That was a big deal for me, to make them feel like they're involved in my growth.(Time Entertainment)

SOHH Watcha Think -- 12 years is a long time to go without albums and in her absence, Nicki Minaj has taken the already narrow lane for female MCs and ran with it. Can Eve make an impact on the game in today's music climate -- or is her time long gone?
