Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

MC Lyte let it slip during an interview with HipHollywood.com that rap artist Lil Mama has been cast to play Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in a new TLC biopic being produced by VH1, the Urban Daily reports.

TLC, who Billboard magazine ranked as one of the greatest musical trios of all time, was active from 1992- 2003 and consisted of singers Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Rozonda “Chili” Thomas and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who often served as the group’s rapper. Left Eye died in a car crash in Honduras in 2002.

The movie is still untitled but screenwriter Kate Lanier, who wrote “Set It Off” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” and TLC’s remaining members Chilli and T-Boz have signed on as consultants.
