Grammy winner and female rapper extraordinaire Eve recently sat down with LNTV to chat about how much influence Dr. Dre had on her career. From urging her to stay even when she was tired to helping her channel inspiration for her biggest and most successful songs, Eve credits Dre: "Every time he pushed me, I made some of the best records of my life."

Dr. Dre was extremely crucial in the makings of some of her biggest tracks, like "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" (Feat. Gwen Stefani) and "Satisfaction." Dre himself was in the studio with Eve as she co-wrote these songs, and helped mold her work ethic when it came to creating, writing and producing in the studio. "It was like shadowboxing with Dre," Eve explains.
