On this day (April 25), seventeen years ago, we lost an angel. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died while on a trip to Honduras in 2002. She was known as the feisty lyricist who took to fame with one of the best R&B groups of all time, TLC. She redefined what it meant to be “cool” with her colorful, electric fashion trends and unforgettable verses. 

Today we honor and celebrate Left Eye by remembering four of her most memorable bars below:

No Scrubs (Remix) – TLC

No Scrubs

“Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular Check your vernacular and then I get back to yaWith diamond like precision, insatiable is what I envision Can’t detect acquisition from your friend’s expedition Mr. Big Willy if you really wanna know Ask Chilli, could I be a silly ho” 

Ladies Night (Remix)

Left Eye

“Booty shakin with the glass in my left one Right hand sayin step-son To me my girls is fancy fly bitches Too my niggaz straight snitches, to them other chicos Lady pimp ain’t havin that shit If you ain’t got the cash to stash, suck my dick hoes Strictly a bell ringer”

U Know What’s Up – Donell Jones feat. Left Eye

Left Eye

“I’m moving on now, trying to make a change in my ways Be the best that I can be to last me all of my days Now we can blaze pathways or just take our time Better holla if ya hear me cause Left Eye gon’ shine My eyes don’t lie, see how they glisten when you pass me by You and I don’t need permission to be unified” 

Waterfalls – TLC  

Left Eye

“Clear and blue and unconditional skies Have dried the tears from my eyes No more lonely cries My only bleeding hope Is for the folk who can’t cope with such an enduring pain That it keeps them in the pouring rain Who’s to blame for tooting ‘caine into your own vein.”
