One of the most influential girl groups in hip hop history is putting twist on giving fans what they want for the last album for TLC. Chilli and T Boz have decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign for $150,000.....
After the release of the TLC MTV Biopic fans responded heavily with their likes and dislikes of the current projects from TLC. Chilli and T Boz have given fans the opportunity to help them make decisions that they ultimately haven't fully had the capability of doing because of their restrictions in creative influence.
"People may say, 'Hey, you are celebrities. Why can't you just pay for it yourself?'" Chilli said. "But it doesn't work that way. There's a lot that goes into it. We want to bring our fans into the process and see how it's done."
The only thing fans may not have any influence in is the input of vocals from Left Eye. TLC told Billboard they do not plan to include any unreleased vocals from Lisa:
You know, when we did the last album, 3D, during the time that she did pass away, the song "Girl Talk" was the only one that her rap was current -- she did the rap specifically for that song. Before that, Lisa was working on her solo stuff and she wanted to go in a direction that was different from Left Eye with TLC......So to answer your question, probably not, but I'm not going to say "no" because we're open to it. But at the end of the day, everyone knows how much we love our sister. You go to our show, you feel her presence.
The Kickstarter Campaign raised over $50K in the first day. And in just two days they have succeeded their goal now at a mind boggling $151, 771. To make your contribution to the Kickstarter Campaign click HERE.
