Lil Mama has some pretty big shoes to fill!

She’s just been officially cast as the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes — who died in 2002 — in the new TLC biopic for VH1.

So, who spilled the beans on the casting decision?

Rap legend MC Lyte revealed the news on the red carpet for the VIBE Impact Awards where she said:

“I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will. She just got the role of Left Eye in TLC’s new movie.”

Currently in pre-production, the movie is said to be released around the time the group’s new album will drop.

Lil Mama definitely has the look down! And we all know she has the MC skillz, so this might be the perfect casting choice! Let’s hope she does the late rapper/singer justice.

RIP Left Eye! We’ll always miss you!
