The new episode "Eve" profiles one of the rap genre's most successful female artists, although the road to fame was not an easy one for the woman born Eve Jihan Jeffers. After struggling for attention in her early days, she is signed by Dr. Dre, only to be dropped by her label only months later. Winning a series of rap battles, Eve earns a reputation as a "Pitbull in a Skirt," as she becomes the First Lady of the Ruff Ryders camp. Personal struggles with depression and anxiety soon follow.
