Eve sat down for an interview with the Guardian, where she described her frosty reception from Lil Kim when the pair first met.

“Before I’d met anybody, I always thought of it as this sisterhood. I thought we were all gonna be friends. It was not like that. I’d see [Lil] Kim and say hi, and she’d be like: ‘Get the f*ck away from me.” Not verbally – you could just tell what she was thinking. But I was in a bubble and it never felt like a competition. I loved Missy [Elliott] and Kim but I never wanted to be them.”

Eve is currently gearing up to release her fifth album, but this isn't the first time that she's spoken about her bumpy start with Kim.

"When I first started in the business, I had been a big big giant fan of Lil Kim. So, I would run up to her and be like, ‘Hey girl, I love you so much. I just got signed. Can you please be on my album?'" she said on her daytime talk show, The Talk in January 2018.

She continued: "I don’t think that she hated me. I think that I was just so overexcited to see her."

Since then, the two have become close friends.

Is she hinting that Lil Kim is going to be on this album?
