Eve and Trina entered the rap world around the same time and tonight’s Verzuz was a celebration of their longevity.
They followed the path that was paved by the likes of Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Missy Elliot, and Lauryn Hill. Verzuz has seen some of the greatest artists ever showcased in a concert style battle. The first ladies night included SWV and Xscape. Tonight’s event had women of the past and current era of hip hop interacting as Da Brat shouted out Cardi B in the comments section.

Due to time difference, this Verzuz showdown may have been the quickest and most time efficient as Eve was performing late into the morning in the United Kingdom as Trina worked with United States eastern time.
It didn’t take away from fans loving the encounter and songs that they grew to love from the artists over the years. The consensus seems to be that the odds on favorite to take the Verzuz in Eve ended up being surprised with Trina.
Eve is the proud owner of two BET Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and four ASCAP Awards. Eve also made history at the Grammy Awards with “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”. It took home the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, which at the time was a brand new category. (The category today is categorized as “Best Melodic Rap Performance.”)
Trina has also been recognized for her work with nominations for BET Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, American Music Awards, and more. To date, the Miami-bred rapstress has two ASCAP Awards, two BMI Awards, one Billboard Music award, and several other music industry accolades.
