Left Eye reprise

Former TLC star Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes is getting a Tupac-style posthumous tribute album, full of studio off-cuts worked into proper songs by the likes of Missy Elliot and Chamillionaire.

Eye Legacy (terrible name) is something of an oddity, considering that when she was alive, producers took every effort to erase Left Eye's contributions to TLC's records (her rap was excised from all but the video version of No Scrubs, for example).

Odder still, though, is the project's first single, Let's Just Do It. A so-so electronic rap workout, it is credited to "Lisa Lopes featuring Missy Elliot and TLC". Considering that Left Eye is the "L" in TLC, this must mark the first time an artist has made a record by themselves, featuring themselves. Amazing.
