good morning! oh i still miss lisa ‘left eye’ lopes so much – the supa fly rap queen of TLC who tragically passed away at the age of 30 in a car accident back in april of 2002 – i’ll never forget the day i heard the sad news – i was driving around over in glendale and my little brother david called me – he was all ‘left eye from TLC is dead’ – i was like ‘what the fuck?!?’ i seriously didn’t believe it at first – she was such a firecracker (literally) her untimely passing was devastating – i first fell in love with her along with t-boz & chilli after their incredible album crazysexycool (1994) and then their much delayed follow-up album fanmail (five years later in ’99) in the end it was all so tragic – not only was she dead – so was TLC – although the t-boz & chilli have tried to do a few projects solo and as a duo – the synergy will never be quite like it was – sad but true!
on january 27th – there’s an album being released call eye legacy which features some unheard solo material from ms. lopes – along with tracks from her debut solo album supernova (which never really got a proper release – the timing was very unfortunate) below is a track called let’s just do it which features missy elliott and the other two girls from TLC – it’s pretty decent and i love hearing ‘left eye’ once again – yes it’s a little on the morbid side but let’s face it – we listen to plenty of music sung by dead people – creepy but true! popbytes over & out for now…xoxo
