She’s gone, but her words aren’t. An album release party went down in the ATL recently for Lisa’s new posthumus album Eye Legacy. Excuse us as we sing a verse or two from Waterfalls. She is still missed.
Monica, Sheree + her broke ass beret, and the scoop on the album when you…
Even as a posthumous release, there’s still plenty of life on Eye Legacy. The project — featuring guest appearances by Lil Mama, Chamillionaire and Missy Elliott — is largely unreleased material from Supernova paired with production by the Surefire Music Group. Lopes’ lyrics still sizzle and ooze with her trademark snappy delivery. Mostly it’s the production, ironically, that sounds dated and stifled. But like Lopes says on “Neva Will Eye Eva,” produced by her sister Reigndrop: “I tell you, I’m from one equal one/ It’s enough, Left Eye show ‘em how it’s done.” Eye Legacy is a reminder of just how high this solo star could have soared.
