Former Ruff Ryders rapper Eve recently updated fans on her music career and revealed plans to release a new music project in the months to come.

According to E-v-e, her personal life put a delay on getting fresh songs out to the masses.

“What kept me away wasn’t something that was conscious. It was more just life stuff. I moved to a new country, I got married. I just needed to settle again,” Eve revealed. “[The new music?] I think it’ll represent my growth. It’ll represent who I am and where I am at this point in my life.” (Rap-Up TV)

Back in 2013, Eve talked about the initial difficult in adjusting to British husband Maximillion Cooper‘s four children.

“I love it now. It took a minute. I was like, ‘I’m not sure this is what I want to be my life.’ You know? But honestly, it’s been three years now and we’ve gone on vacations together, and they’re the sweetest kids,” she explained in an interview. “We talk about having kids. We talk about marriage. The kids are excited. They want a brown baby sister.” (Sister 2 Sister)

Previously, the Philadelphia rapper talked about wanting to raise a family outside of the United States.

“I’d rather raise my kids globally than exclusively in the U.S. There is so much culture and history in Europe. We have culture in the U.S. but you have to look for it. A lot of the kids I’ve met in Europe are more mature because they’ve gotten to travel. In an hour, you can be in a different country. I’m going to be one of those crazy parents who wants her children to speak three languages. They’re going to hate me, but they will love me for it in the end.” (Complex)

Earlier the same month, the 34-year-old emcee talked about possibly having biracial kids.

“I don’t want them to see color. I never did. I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a black thing, even though I grew up around all black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races. I’m a black woman and I love being a black woman. And I think my child should know that black part of themselves. But at the same time, their father would be white and I would want them to know that side of themselves. And British! That’s a whole other situation [Laughs].” (VIBE Vixen)
