Selling approximately 162,000 copies in its first week, Scorpion is home to singles like ‘Who’s That Girl?’ as well as ‘Let Me Blow Ya Mind.’ After going platinum, the album secured Eve a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002.
Yesterday, Eve dropped a deluxe version of Scorpion; which honors its 20-year anniversary. In addition, the former Ruff Ryder features 12 bonus tracks!
In additional news, the pit bull in a skirt met up with HipHopDX to discuss the album’s impact. During that interview, Eve shares new insights on the album’s creation process.
“That album was so fast to do,” she says. “There were a lot of things that happened. For one, we recorded in Miami, so it was the first time I was able to take the budget and go somewhere, get a dope house and all the Ruff Ryders were there, going through the studio.”
