This week marked the 10th anniversary of TLC rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’s sudden death at age 30.
Now the two remaining members of the group, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas, have confirmed to Essence and E! News plans to tour and include the late rapper in their shows by showing footage of her old performances.
(I’ve put hologram in quotes because, despite being labeled that way, Tupac’s beyond the grave performance was actually a two-dimensional projection.)
A rep further clarified the situation to E! News. “The image is not a hologram,” the rep said. “The girls have done shows before with footage of old performances showing Lisa performing with them on a screen as they perform.”
