Brandy and Eve have undoubtedly had a major influence on hip-hop culture. They are two of the most well-known artists of the ’90s and early 2000s.
These two women went to different spheres of the genre and held it down– Brandy with her amazing vocals and Eve with her smooth rap style.
They didn’t stop there; these music divas also branched out into the acting world and were featured in movies and television shows. Their newest venture is a series aired on ABC titled “Queens.”
Both appear in this show as part of a group of women who came together to recapture the former fame and legend status they enjoyed in the 1990s hip-hop world.

What The Series ‘Queens’ Is About
This series was created by Zahir McGee, the writer of “Scandal.” It stars hip-hop legends like Brandy, Eve, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez.

This series followed the lives of the Nasty B** ches’ lives in their prime, and their reunion after it all ended decades later. According to the series, the Nasty B**ches is an all-female hip-hop group that rose to fame in the late ’90s.
At the peak of their fame, the group disbanded due to the continuous clashing of egos and drama.
The series revolves around them reuniting 20 years later and their journey to venture into the new, changed music industry.
The ‘Nasty B**ches’ Members
Brandy played Naomi, also known as Xplicit Lyrics. Naomi thought that the group’s end would not affect her career, but it wasn’t so. The group reuniting is her second shot at the spotlight, and she doesn’t want to miss it.
At the same time, she’s concerned about a former lover and her estranged daughter.
Eve’s character, Brianna, takes after the rapper. She was called Professor Sex in the ’90s and rapped about money, sex, and living large. But her position as a wife and mother-of-five now has left her wondering if she’s still got her much loved swagger.

Naturi Naughton played Jill, a.k.a Da Thrill; she was a rapper who lived a fast life that almost caused her early demise. She had a bad drug habit that could have killed her until she got a lid on the addiction. Now she’s a catholic and seems to be enjoying her peaceful life with her husband in Montana. However, things might not be as they seem.
The fourth member was Valeria, known as Butter Pecan, and played Nadine Velazquez. Valeria was added to the group when they rose to fame and started to be seen as the face of the group.
This didn’t sit well with other group members, but Valeria’s interests came first to her. This attitude kept her in the spotlight after the group broke up, and she presently hosts a morning talk show.
Brandy’s Net Worth
Brandy‘s net worth is a whopping $12 million. Her interest in music started the first time she heard Whitney Houston sing. At 11 years, she was already auditioning for talent shows, and by 1993 she was signed to Atlantic Records.
Her self-titled debut album dropped in 1994 and was lauded by the public. She auditioned for and landed the lead role in a sitcom titled “Moesha,” and from there, her career had a smooth sail.

Eve’s Net Worth

Eve signed with Aftermath Entertainment and then signed on to the Ruff Riders label. Her debut album “Let There Be Eve” was released in 1999 and became number one on the charts.
