Lil Mama Snags Left Eye Role


Lil Mama, most famous for crashing the stage at the 2009 MTV Awards during Jay Z and Alicia Keys performance of New York [click here if you missed that], will finally have something else attached to her name...

Over the weekend MC Lyte let the cat out of the bag on the VIBE Impact Awards red carpet when she revealed,
"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."
VH1 announced they were casting for the bio-pic last November [click here if you missed that].

No word yet on who will play Chili and T-Boz.

I remember when that bitch ass Charlamagne made her cry. I kinda felt sorry for her then. Congrat's Lil Mama. Just don't mess ths up.

Man I wonder what Charlamagne had to say about this. I've never felt both so bad for someone and laughed as hard at someone as when Lil Mama was on The Breakfast Club.

@ 10:59 Same thing i was thinking. Nothing against Lil Mama personally, but these bio-pics seem to be more about reviving failed careers rather than giving some new blood a chance. Up & coming actors once again being overlooked. Smh!

All american industries, including the entertainment industry, are about to be fully locked down.

The gay jews running hollywood do not want any new blood as they don't want any new creativity or challenges either. You see they keep rehashing the same tired movies with the same tired actors. There are rumors that there are drawers fully and fresh, new and innovating scripts locked in secret vaults in hollywood. I doubt it's true but I wouldn't be surprised if it was. It's all part of the agenda.

Awwww, Congrats Lil Mama! This news made me smile, i'm so happy for her!!!

Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was my sister. Lil Mama looks nothing like L.E., but I hope Lil Mama does a great job.

That pic is harrible! I hope this isn't how they are going to portray lisa. If so, it needs to be a comedy. No resemblence whatsoever to the point of being cartoonish. Tired of Hollywood doing this. We all don't look alike. There was a better choice, they just didn't choose it.

Anonymous said...

Why? Just Why? Did they not hold a real audition/casting call or something? Lil Mama is a terrible choice. There has to be someone better that could have done it. But then again this is VH1 we're talking about, Hoodrat Central (not calling Lil Mama a hoodrat, vh1 is just a mess for what it has become, BBW, LAHH etc.). SMH #FAIL.

I like Lil Mama. I wish she'd start using her real name. That Lil M. shit diminishes her. She don't have to look like Left Eye to play her. She is very articulate. I'm happy for her!

AND THATS YOUR BLACK MOMENT IN HISTORY, PLEASE CHANGE THE PIC TOO. AS YOU WERE!!!

I think this is a good casting choice - lil mama is a rapper with a lot of spunk and personality (she prob really wanted to play this role maybe left eye was her idol). she doesnt look like lopes but she is pretty and i think that she will do a much better job portraying Lisa L than Mary J portrayed Dr. Shabazz.

To all the posters saying why her, she's ugly, why didn't they pick someone else, you failed to mention a better choice for the role

@yall Lil Mama and MC Lyte are two different black ladies. YES THEY ARE BOTH RAPPERS BUT NOT THE SAME PERSON!!! Mc Lyte made the statement but Snitch posts Lil Mama's pic.

@ 12:18 Thats why i haven't been near a movie theater for about 5 yrs now. I don't know whether this will be one of those made-for-tv movies but its all Hollywood and it stinks. As you said its the same ole shit being constantly recycled and there should be a higher turnover of fresh talent to keep the current ones on their toes which would hopefully ensure a higher standard of acting as they'd know that if their wack thats it. However, as we already know this industry is all sewn up for those who face fits, those with the right connections and the plain ole asslickers who will do anything their told. I tend to watch indie movies anyway, but the casting of Lil Mama as Lisa 'Left Eye' is wrong. You can't beat a properly trained actor/actress and she just will not be able to convey the beauty that Left Eye had.

MC Lyte can't keep a secret. While on the red carpet for the VIBE Impact Awards, the legendary MC took time to praise rapper Lil Mama, who she revealed will be portraying the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes in an upcoming biopic on VH1.

"I'm going to 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," Lyte told HipHollywood.com. "She is a talented young lady so 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 so excited for her."

Lyte went on to reveal that she will be getting to the studio with Lil Mama to record a "Hip-Hop Sisters" record, which includes plans for songs with Monie Love, the Lady of Rage and Yo Yo.

In November 2012, TLC's remaining members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas revealed that the group was working on a new album and auditioning actors to portray them in the forthcoming biopic.

In sort of related new, Compton rapper the Game recently got a tattoo of Left Eye on his ribs.

MC Lyte recently dropped a new, Erick Sermon produced track called "Jordan Effect" that is part of the Jordan Brand's "XX8 Days Of Flight" campaign.

Let us know if you think Lil Mama playing Left Eye is a good or bad look in the comments.

PRONOUNS SUCH AS SHE AND HE. REWITE THE ARTICLE OR COPY AND PASTE BETTER!!!!!

I'm not trying to be mean, but Left Eye was a very, very pretty girl and Lil Mama is very, very, very not. Don't know how she can give a good performance with such a staggering difference in their appearance. It's kind of like Rosi O'Donnell playing Betty in The Flintstones. Betty, on the cartoon, was slim and very nice looking. Rosi? Not so much.
