TIMELINE

TLCbutton.gif (123 bytes) TLC burst onto the hip hop and pop music scene in 1991. The female trio from Atlanta, GA consists of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas. TLC became known for their street savvy outfits with dangling condom accessories with their first LP, and then as sexy, talented singers with their sophomore release. The trio combination mixes their talents with T-Boz's sultry vocals, Chilli's R&B sound, and Left Eye's bold rapping. TLC got together when T-Boz and Left Eye hooked up with a woman in Atlanta putting together a girl group. The two felt more compatible with each other and went off on their own. T-Boz and Left Eye then hooked up with Pebbles and Dallas Austin, and soon Chilli completed the trio.

button.gif (123 bytes) In between LP releases, TLC was making news with the arrest of Left Eye for arson - she had torched her boyfriend's (Andre Rison of the Atlanta Falcons) house. Left Eye avoided jail time with a drinking defense and was served with five years probation. More press seemed to cover Left Eye's actions than the often violent relationship itself. Not thrilled with her defense attorneys highlighting her drinking to keep her out of jail or accusations of being a "crazy bitch," Left Eye found it necessary to succeed with her music even more. "The best way for me to get those people back is to succeed. I didn't struggle this far to have people tear me down. I came out of some s*** where it was, like, I didn't know what I was doing. I finally started looking at myself like I'm worth something, and it's because I've accomplished everything people told me I wouldn't. The best way for me to get people back is to come back out even harder."
