We hate to speak ill of the departed, but there's not much nice to say about the late TLC rapper's Stateside debut. Eye Legacy is but another posthumous compilation matching a much-missed talent's unused vocals (many from an eight-year-old solo album that only came out overseas) with tinny new beats and random guests. Listening to these studio cook-ups is enough to make anyone nostalgic for the style and spunk that Lisa Lopes brought to TLC's '90s albums. That doesn't mean even the most devoted fans will want to hear this one more than once. C–
