Pass The Popcorn: TLC Movie Teaser + New LP
TLC resurfaces with major news in the form of a trailer for Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story – the forthcoming biopic about the r&b super group that took the world by storm with their 1992 debut Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip. The film starring Keke Palmer, Lil Mama and Drew Sidora is set to air on VH1 in October. Jumping from the screen to the stage, Lil Mama is set to appear alongside T-Boz and Chilli during an upcoming performance at The Mixtape Festival in Hershey, PA. The group’s remaining members reportedly extended the invitation to Lil Mama after being impressed by her performance on set in the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. TLC is cautious to remind fans that though Lil Mama will take the stage with them, no one will ever take Left Eye’s place in the group. Lil Mama echoed their sentiments in a statement to Billboard:
“Every time I think of Lisa I think of an old woman, a grandmother who passes on and leaves a jewelry box of things she collected. The family probably fights about it, probably says don’t touch it,” she said. “I feel like that with Lisa’s career. She left behind a legacy in her music and her style that people feel like, ‘don’t touch that.’ And it’s an honor to be chosen by her sisters, to say ‘hey you got it, don’t worry about what nobody else says. Make us proud.’”
TLC bests their upcoming live shows with news that they are back in the studio working on new material. The group has re-signed with original mentor L.A. Reid and have made plans to release a compilation project this fall that will contain classic TLC tracks, remixes and new material. Check the teaser below for a look at the upcoming film. Stay tuned for more from TLC.
