Remembering Left Eye…10 Years On

Published: Wednesday 25th Apr 2012 by Sam

Today marks the tenth anniversary of Lisa ‘Left Eye Lopes’ passing on to eternity.

And while many a kind word are often cooked up for the departed, the latter couldn’t hold truer for the TLC stalwart. For, her impact -both within the confines of the Grammy winning group and beyond- are ever-enduring.

Indeed, Lopes’ sass, spark, and unparalleled talent earned her legitimate legend status by the time of her death, aged just 30 at the hands of a freak car accident in the Honduras.

And while her physical demise remains one of music’s most shocking tragedies, what lives on and lives loud is her stellar body of work. A body which has enabled many a female group and femcee to be somebody. Hence, for that and so much more, Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, That Grape Juice salutes you.

Check out some of our favourite Lisa moments below…

    Left-Eye inspired many of the female rappers (NICKI,NICKI,NICKI) of today. She brought a comical nature to a song while still remaining a serious lyricist and garnering much respect for it. She was so beautiful and such a warm spirit! I really would love to hear some new material from TLC in 2012 because I feel like T Boz and Chili have taken enough time off. They need to use the gifts they are blessed with while they still can. Both are still beautiful and youthful and in amazing shape.

    TLC will always be one of my favorite groups. Can never resist jamming to Creep, Baby Baby Baby, and Diggin On You. If anybody has not heard “I’m Good At Being Bad” by TLC they need to hop on that ASAP. Click on the link below and get ready to laugh lol. For me it’s a favorite.

    @Adrian I want that as well but T-Boz has a brain tumor and has gained a lot of weight.

  12. Adrian April 25, 2012

    Oh wow I did not know that at all. She has really gone through the storm with her health. I could have sworn TGJ had just posted a video of her speaking of NeNe Leakes and other questions from fans. I must have overlooked that information about her well-being.
