Word on the street is that Lil Mama will be playing Left Eye in a TLC biopic.
MC Lyte revealed this information to Hip Hollywood in a red carpet interview at the VIBE Impact Awards.
“I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will,” Lyte said. “She just got the role as Left Eye in TLC’s new movie. I am so excited for her.”
The movie, which is currently in pre-production, will chronicle TLC’s journey to stardom, including their trials and tribulations. The movie will include moments that made them famous like their 1994 album CrazySexyCool and personal drama. That would be T-Boz’s struggles with Sickle Cell, the group’s financial troubles, Left Eye’s arson issues and eventually her death. T-Boz and Chilli will serve as executive producers and consultants for the movie.
But back to Lil Mama, it seems like MC Lyte is really rooting for her.
“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,”she said. Watch the video.
I haven’t really gotten a chance to see Lil Mama show off what she can really do but there’s something about her that makes me believe in her talent. Despite the flare for tacky wardrobe choices, there’s something that seems genuine about her. So, I’m on board with seeing her play Left Eye. Good luck Lil Mama!
