Lil' Mama will play Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in a TLC biopic for VH1. It’s great to see Lil' Mama get an opportunity like this and she’s getting a co-sign from the legendary MC Lyte.

“I’m gonna 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 ’cause she is a talented young lady,” “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will: She just got the role as Left Eye in TLC’s new movie. I am so excited for her.”

I can’t imagine how special I would feel if I had a mentor like MC Lyte. It's great for Lil' Mama to have one of the best female rappers ever, willing to put her name on the line for her.

We all remember the rapper embarrassing herself at the 2009 VMA’s . Thankfully for her, she has a chance to ensure that that won’t be our last memory of her. I hope she rips the role and shows the world that you can overcome any situation if you work hard.
