Description: Unreleased and unheard. Left Eye came to CyberTLC posting under her brother’s account with a challenge for fans to guess the title of a song she recorded for her solo album. The title ended up being “Crossbreed,” which no one guessed.  The riddle read: “My fellow citizens… Thank you for your kind thoughts and uplifting words. As I was reading YOUR messages, I got so caught up in ’em that I went into a zone. Then, something dawned on me. See… I’m writing a song and I could use your help. I feel like I’m writing a term paper to be honest. What the subject at hand is dealing with has to do with carrots in a sense. I’m trying to give you hints, without giving you all the answers. If you could e-mail lebigbro_cc@yahoo.com with any information regarding the origin of carrots, I would gladly appreciate it. Please consider this your Mission #2. Thank You! Until the next time… be safe.  Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes”  It never appeared on her album.

Description: Unreleased and unheard. Confirmed in the January 2014 issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine.”…Left Eye’s friends recall that TLC members were at a low point when Left Eye did the VIBE magazine interview.  Trinay [Otrinay Smith] has a song that Left Eye made with her called “Eye For An Eye,” on which Left Eye airs out some of TLC’s dirty laundry.  “I told her, ‘Don’t put it out.’ Because she expressed how she felt. It’s like a Tupac ‘Hit Em Up’ song,” Trinay said.”  According to Otrina (aka Trinay), Lisa’s verse was in fact already released on her sister Raina’s song “Ridin’ By.”  Trinay released the lyrics to her verse which can be found in the CyberTLC Lyrics section.  Lisa produced the beat she said.  “wWe had fun recording it.  We did it inside of her studio in her home.  The song itself goes hard.  [Listen to my instrumental] was the hook for “Eye For An Eye” because when was recording it I was chanting listen to my instrumental at the end.”

Description: Unreleased and unheard. Fans hypothesize that even though this track is unreleased, we may have actually heard the rap in House Party 3 which was around the same time and includes many references to ruffnecks.  This is only a theory and unconfirmed.  Lisa’s brother Ron says this is not the same rap.  MC Lyte says, “I wanted her on a song called ‘Ruffneck,’ and we did the song, but unfortunately, Pebbles and L.A. Reid were not familiar enough with my work at the time, and they wouldn’t allow the release of the song [with Left Eye’s verse]…I specifically thought of her.  I wanted her voice.  I thought that her style was unique.  I thought her voice was fresh and distinctive…It’s still in the hands of Teddy Riley.  If one day he decides to let somebody hear it, we’ll all be very happy.”  Also confirmed by Teddy Riley on iCraft Radio in 2014 as listed below.  Another friend of Teddy Riley’s said the following of the track in an online music forum: “I sat in the studio with MC Lyte while Lisa Lopes (Left Eye) layed her verse for the Lyte’s song RuffNeck. Lisa killed the song so much,me, Aquil, Teddy Serban, and Lucy was raving how dope the single was…Lyte, heard it, and re-wrote her verse for the song. By the time it was finished and shipped to LaFace, TLC had a video and single out for a movie I believe, and Babyface or L.A. told Atlantic (Lyte’s label) that they did not want Ruffneck to interfere with TLC’s single because Left eye would be making Atlantic money at the same time, and because they was scared Ruffneck would make more money than their TLC-produced single. Teddy edit Left Eye out the track, but he still has the master trust me.”
Teddy Riley:
Lisa did, yeah. We did “Ruffneck.” I have all my masters. Every last master. I took pictures of the Michael masters, all the stuff. And then I took a picture of “Ruffneck” with Lisa on it. Left Eye.
T-Boz:
Did y’all do a remix, too?

Description: Unreleased.  This track was sent to Chris@CyberTLC by Richard L. Robinson who worked with both Lisa and Ron early in TLC’s career.  Chris then mailed a copy to Ron Lopes at his request who hadn’t heard it in years.  Richard originally claimed this song was recorded prior to TLC, but in 2016 Ron Lopes said the following online: “Lets set the record straight! In 1995 I was attending Emmanuel College and I used to do Gospel rap. I had a song written by my good friend Richard L. Robinson called Spiritual Warfare. Lisa produced a track for it and did the hook for me. I had a great time working with my sis on this song. Fans deserve to know the real story!”  Richard also sent another song which includes only Ron Lopes called “The World Today.”  According to Richard he wrote the song along with Laudir Lugo.
