I wish Left Eye could hear this tribute "Left Eye Back" by Mobile, Alabama-bred rapstress Black Frost. Black Frost kicks off the 3-minute piece with a clip of Left Eye reflecting on artistic advice she received from Tupac.
Then Black Frost, suited up in camouflage gear, emerges in front of a backdrop engulfed in flames, rapping the song's chorus, "Left Eye back. Left Eye back. Got everybody screaming Left Eye back," taking cues from Meek Mill's monster jam, "Tupac Back."
As much as I like Nicki Minaj, I'd have to say watching Black Frost rip this track to pieces makes the "Super Bass" rapper look rather childlike, hence her self-proclaimed Barbie comparison.
Still, Black Frost brings the goods, cleverly incorporating in her lyrics many TLC song titles and even a reference to Left Eye's 1994 arson incident with ex Andre Rison: "Them leaking like Waterfalls while my killers is Creeping. Never f**ks with a Scrub you know what's up when you see me. Stranded on Death Row, I ain't 2 proud 2 beg. I'll give you the Red Light Special. Hat 2 Da Back on my head. Screaming Left Eye back. Left Eye back. I set the roof on fire like Left Eye back!"
Black Frost, you got you a new fan.
