Lil Mama has gone from having lip gloss that pops, to being a television personality, and now she’s broadening her acting career in the made for television TLC biopic as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. During a red carpet interview at the Vibe Impact Awards, MC Lyte revealed the news. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will,” Lyte told Hip Hollywood. “She just got the role as Left Eye in TLC’s new movie. I am so excited for her.”
The movie, currently in pre-production, will chronicle the ups and downs of the trio. The movie will include moments that made them famous, such as their 1994 album CrazySexyCool, as well as their personal struggles. Everything from T-Boz’s struggles with Sickle Cell, the groups financial woes, Left Eye’s arson issues and ultimately her death, will be touched upon in the movie. T-Boz and Chilli will serve as executive producers and consultants for the movie.
Mc Lyte has also embarked on taking Lil Mama under her wings to further groom her for the entertainment and music business. “I’m gonna put a little bit of my concentration and focus on helping to uplift a sister who is talented, smart, witty, and just had her chances cut too short, and that’s Lil Mama ’cause she is a talented young lady,” explained Lyte. The collaboration of the two artists will include a hip-hop sisters album with veterans such as Lady of Rage, Monie Love and Yo-yo.
