Ruff Ryders’ Eve is ready to move on and not look back. The hip-hop veteran has expressed her personal issues with Kanye West over his publicized slavery comments.

In a new interview, E-v-e explained why she cannot support the G.O.O.D. Music boss.

“You want to be a free-thinker, you want to be thought-provoking, you cannot have these ideas without facts to back them up. Slavery is a fact. Slavery is part of our history… we cannot forget it – we are still feeling the effects of slavery within our community, within our culture. It hurts me. … This is a man that I actually used to listen to, this is a person that we used to look to as an artist. Any young brothers looking at me, listening to me today – pick up some Nas, pick up Damian Marley, pick up some J. Cole, pick up some Kendrick Lamar. Listen to these artists. I am done with Kanye.” (The Talk)
