US rapper Lil Mama is reportedly preparing to take on the role of late R&B star Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes in a biopic about TLC.
According to rap icon MC Lyte, the Lipgloss hitmaker will play Lopez, who died n a car crash in 2002, in the VH1 film.
"I'm going to [use my] focus on trying to uplift a sister that's talented, smart, witty and just had her chance cut too short and that's Lil Mama because she is a talented little lady," she revealed from the red carpet at the 2013 Vibe Impact Awards.
"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.[...]I am so excited for her. She is a talented young lady. So I want to see her do."
Lopes, Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas' rose to worldwide fame as TLC in the early 90s with hits including Waterfalls, No Scrubs and Unpretty.
