Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes

Age: 30 (Deceased)
Years Active In The Game: 12
Notable Songs: “No Scrubs”; “Waterfalls”; “Girl Talk”
Why She Is The Best: Better known as one-third of the Grammy Award-winning group TLC, Left Eye had boundless potential that showed in her original raps. Balancing out the hip-pop melodies of T-Boz and Chilli, Left Eye’s rhymes were often dynamic. We can recite many of her lyrics from TLC’s hits that sometimes make it feel like she never left. While the late lyricist had a short solo run with her only posthumous release, 2009’s Eye Legacy, she’ll forever be remembered for her outspoken attitude and flamboyance. That colorful personality can never be replicated.
