A major detail in the upcoming biopic about R&B group TLC has been revealed.

In an interview with Hip Hollywood, MC Lyte revealed that rapper Lil Mama has landed the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in 2002 in a car crash in La Ceiba, Honduras.

“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 just cut too short,” explained Lyte. “And that’s Lil Mama. She is a talented young lady, and I want to see her do some beautiful things.”

“And, I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will: she just got the role of Left Eye in TLC’s new movie. So I am just so excited for her.”

MC Lyte also revealed that she, Lil Mama and others are working on a Hip Hop Sisters album together.

Lil Mama was featured on Left Eye’s 2009 posthumous release, Eye-Legacy.
