Grammy Award-winning artist Sky Keeton recently spoke with The Art Of Dialogue. Keeton who also writes and produces, has worked with artists such as Daz Dillinger and Lil Jon. Sky had a close friendship with Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez.
He met Lisa after a performance he had given at a bar and the pair became very close friends. After liking what she had heard, Lisa quickly signed him to her label, Left Eye Productions. Furthermore, finding out Sky had no place to live in Atlanta, Lisa even invited Sky to live with her.
Asking what kind of things Left Eye had done for him, Sky was very appreciative. “She gave me a publishing deal, got me some gigs and she gave me artist development, she made me famous. Lisa changed my life, I wouldn’t be here today if she hadn’t cared.”
Tupac and Lisa ‘Left Eye’ became friends, hanging out together. Over a period of time, Tupac noticed that there might be a connection between them. He suggested that they should just be friends.
Tupac and Left Eye ‘Just friends’
Although Lisa did have an interest in Tupac, she was cool with being just friends. After this, Lisa met Treach, who was Tupac’s best friend and they hit it off. When ‘Pac found out, he went off on Lisa.
Being with Lisa ‘Left Eye’ almost everywhere she went, Sky remembers back to the argument between ‘Pac and Lisa.
Speaking to The Art Of Dialogue, Sky says, “Her and Treach did have a thing. Tupac did get mad about it. Treach told Tupac he smashed, Tupac called Lisa and cussed her out. They cussed each other out and that was it.”
As a result, it left Lisa confused about the situation, being that ‘Pac wanted to be just friends. Although she exchanged words with Tupac, Lisa had feelings for him and deeply cared for him. She even went as far as to say to Sky that she and “Pac are like twins.”
“Lisa loved ‘Pac, every time we were in the car together all she played was Tupac,” says Sky. “She was hurt for days when he died. She said to me that ‘I did have a thing for him. We couldn’t have been together because us two together we would end up dead!”
Sky also gave a shout out to The Outlawz. “Speaking of Tupac, I want to give a shout out to my brothers. Edi Mean, Young Noble, rest in peace Fatal, Stormy, those are my brothers. I have tons of songs with the Outlawz, I love them dearly. You can’t mention ‘Pac without the Outlawz.”
