Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes passed away ten years ago today and a song released by German label Block Starz Music leaked yesterday. The song is characterized by a smooth beat with a sweet flute and a steady protools beat. Left Eye’s rapping is different than was usually characteristic of her–it is deeper and a more rugged, probably because around that time she was developing music under the persona of N.I.N.A. That version of Left Eye was on Suge Knight’s Death Row records.
For that reason, this song is a departure from what people knew of Left Eye during her TLC days. It offers a glimpse of the type of music the rapper would have released had she not had that fatal plane crash a decade ago.
