Hip hop world remembers Left Eye
It's hard to believe, but April 25 marked the 10th anniversary of the death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. Lopes was the "resident rhymer" of the R&B trio TLC and her catchy lyrics and her outlandish hip hop clothes are still missed today, BET reports.
According to the source, TLC arrived on the music scene in 1992 with their debut album "Oooooooohhhh… on the TLC Tip!" The group emphasized girl power and worked to promote safe sex - Left Eye is even seen wearing a condom package behind her glasses over her left eye in one of their music videos.
ABC News reports fans and her former group mates expressed their feelings on the 10 year anniversary of her passing.
"The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, its still something that hurts," Tionne, "T-Boz" Watkins said in a statement.
Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas added, "Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change."
Although Left Eye is physically gone, her memory may soon be living on on stage. TMZ recently reported that TLC's 2012 reunion tour may include a hologram version of Left Eye, similar to the Tupac hologram at Coachella.
