On this day, June 9, in hip-hop history...

1994: Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes of TLC was not only the fire spitting MC of the '90s girl-group era, but she was also a firecracker when it came to fighting.

Just after TLC dropped their debut album, 1992's Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip , Lopes began dating Atlanta Falcons football star Andre Rison. The tumultuous couple had many physical altercations in the past but nothing that compared to what happened in the early morning hours of June 9, 1994.

When Andre returned home around 5 A.M. from a night of clubbing, Lisa was furious that the wide receiver had bought himself a bunch of new shoes and didn't buy her any. After fighting in the driveway and inside the house, Andre attempted to leave. That's when Lopes took all the new gear, threw it in a bathtub and lit it on fire. She then took a vaccuum cleaner pipe, went outside and started bashing in the windows to his cars. Amid their struggles, the couple forgot about the fire until smoke was billowing out of the roof.

The fire engulfed the entire mansion, burning it to the ground and leaving just a charred skeleton structure.

The next day, on June 10, Lopes turned herself into the Atlanta police and was charged with felony arson. She was released on $75,000 bail and five days later, her lawyer announced that Lopes would voluntarily entered rehab. Lopes was sentenced to live in a halfway house, was charged with $10,000 in fines and would remain on probation for five years.
