On a recent afternoon in New York City, remaining bandmembers Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins were in a playful mood, laughing heartily as they shared memories of their friend and third TLC member, the late Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes' pranks, their worst fan moments, and what they did when they finally got some "real" money after years of being "the brokest" multi-platinum album selling artists. I already grew up in a musical family but seeing him made me want it so bad. MC Hammer was their favorite person to go on tour with: Chilli: That was like the best tour ever! I watched Hammer's show every night on that tour and I was studying how he was up there with all those dancers and yet he stood out from all of them. I'm thinking, 'I don't know how good this is gonna be.' I took a bite of that chicken and I was like, 'Damn! ' I just cherish those times because we would just talk and laugh, eat good food and just have fun. We were in the kitchen and she was frying chicken with only salt and pepper because that's all they had."This album could not have happened without your support and your confidence in TLC has inspired us greatly to make the best album possible," he added."We would have loved to have delivered this album sooner to you but we are confident that you will agree that it was worth the wait when you hear it." "Tboz & Chilli were inspired to make a record that they could be proud of and they would not settle for less and sometimes you just cannot rush art," Diggins explained.T-Boz: We're all pranksters, but I think she was the president of it.I used to love the way she would come up with the craziest things, like, she would buy plastic ants and line them up near a restaurant salad bar.
We'd get like fake roaches and put them in people's rice. She didn't care what people thought about her and I loved that about her."On behalf of TLC and myself I want to express our most sincere thanks for your patience on waiting for the album.I am thrilled to let you know that the album is tentatively scheduled to be released at the end of June," Diggins wrote in an update on Kickstarter. I'll never forget once we were at a hotel and I had recently stopped eating chicken because of a bad experience. Their favorite memory of Left-Eye: Chilli: The best thing for me was how much she loved to cook.
