Late rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC fame will have her final solo album released on November 11 through Mass Appeal Entertainment.

The 12-track project, titled “Eye-Legacy,” will feature collaborations with Miss Elliot, Chamillionaire, Lil Mama, and Bobby Valentino.

The first single, “Let’s Just Do It,” featuring Missy.

The songs on “Eye-Legacy” featuring unreleased vocals from Lopes.

Previously, the TLC star released a solo album, Supernova, that was only released in Europe and a failed union with Death Row as a solo artist–under the name N.I.N.A.–resulted in no material being released.

“We hope people understand the message in Lisa’s music and appreciate her as not just a member of TLC, but as a solo artist as well. This album is Left Eye’s musical gift to her fans and adds to the beauty of her legacy,” the Lopes family commented in a statement.

The fiery rapper long hoped for a solo career as successful as her her collaborative work with TLC had become. At one point Lopes even challenged her group mates, T-Boz and Chili, to all release solo albums the same day and to determine the winner by album sales.

Lopes died in April of 2002 in Honduras during a car accident. She was only 31. A documentary on her last days wad produced by VH1 titled “The Last Days of Left Eye.”
