One-2-Call! Freedom Music
BLACK EYED PEAS : The Monkey Business Tour"

The Black Eyed Peas dates to 1989, when will.i.am (Born: Will Adams) and Apl.de.ap (Born: Allen Pineda) met and began rapping and performing together around Los Angeles . The pair signed to Ruthless Records (run by Eazy-E) after catching the attention of Eazy-E manager Jerry Heller's nephew. Along with another friend of theirs, Dante Santiago, they called their trio Atban Klann. Their debut album was never released because Ruthless did not consider the positive themes reflected in the group's music to be marketable to their audience.

After Eazy-E died of an AIDS related illness in 1995 (see 1995 in music), Atban Klann reformed athe group as the Black Eyed Peas, named so because - as will.i.am's explained on the front cover of the Monkey business album - 'Black Eyed Peas are food for the soul'. They replaced their original third member with Taboo (Born: Jaime Gomez), and having Kim Hill as a steady background singer. Unlike many hip-hop acts, they chose to perform with a live band and adopted a musical and clothing style that differed wildly from the "Gangsta Rap" sounds of other Los Angeles-based hip-hop acts at the time. Through the mid-'90s, they performed in the local club circuit alongside fellow acts such as Ozomatli and Jurassic 5. After being signed to Interscope Records and releasing their debut, Behind the Front (1998, 1998 in music) the group (and their accompanying live band) earned critical acclaim. The hit single from the album was "Joints and Jam", and was featured on the Bulworth soundtrack. Their second album was 2000's Bridging the Gap (2000 in music), which had the hit "Request + Line" featuring Macy Gray.

+ Update +
The band is also going to make the FIFA World Cup 2006 song, along with British musician Brian Eno.

The Black Eyed Peas established the Pea Pod Foundation to help suffering children around the world. The foundation is administered through the Entertainment Industry Foundation. On February 6, 2006, at a concert in Hollywood, California to benefit the foundation, the band was joined by Sergio Mendes, Jessica Simpson, and other stars.

On March 21, 2006, The Black Eyed Peas released a remix album, entitled "Renegotiations: the Remixes" to iTunes. It features remixed versions of Ba Bump, My Style, Feel It, Disco Club, They Don't want Music, Audio Delite, and the standard version and video of Like That.

On March 28, 2006, "Renegotiations: the Remixes" was released in Compact Disc format, minus the music video.

In April, 2006 BEP hit the road again with supporting bands Flipsyde and Pussycat Dolls. They again brought the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus on the tour with them to craft new songs for several upcoming ables.

William James Adams Jr
(born March 15, 1975), better known as will.i.am

The correct title of this article is will.i.am. The initial letter is capitalized because of technical restrictions.

William James Adams Jr (born March 15, 1975), better known as will.i.am, is a founding member of Black Eyed Peas. William is of Jamaican American descent. He went to Palisades High School and graduated in 1993. He produced the majority of The Black Eyed Peas' music albums, as well as the main theme song for the American animated television show, Samurai Jack, and appeared as a tutorial and advisor in The Urbz. will.i.am also has his own fashion line, i.am clothing. His best friends, Taboo and apl.de.ap, are also members of The Black Eyed Peas. He also recorded a song for Dexter's Laboratory. will.i.am cites the Red Hot Chili Peppers as an influence and he appeared on a documentary on Radio 1 about the history of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, claiming that he named the Black Eyed Peas in a similar fashion to the Chilis, naming the band after a food.

Will.i.am will be spending 6 months of the next few years living in Australia promoting local R&B and hip hop talent, which will centre him around an upcoming reality show.

In 2004, he made the song "Go" on the video game Madden NFL 2005. In 2005, will.i.am recorded the song "I Am Somebody" with guitarist Carlos Santana for his album All That I Am.

Stacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson
(born March 27, 1975 in Whittier, California), is the female vocalist for The Black Eyed Peas. Ferguson is a two-time Grammy Award winner. She joined the Black Eyed Peas in 2003, replacing Kim Hill.

Stacy Ferguson was born to parents Terri and Pat Ferguson who were of Irish and Scottish descent. As a child actress, she appeared on the television program Kids Incorporated for several years with Renee Sands, who herself would become another member of Wild Orchid. Her well-scrubbed image on that show presents quite a contrast with the ghetto-funk image she has more recently begun to cultivate. Ferguson was the voice of Sally Brown in two Charlie Brown specials: It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown (1984) and Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown (1985). She has one sister, Dana Ferguson, who is an actress.

Later, Ferguson was a member of the female trio Wild Orchid which she fronted with fellow Kids Incorporated star Renee Sands and Stefanie Ridel. Wild Orchid released two albums, but after completing a third album, their record label declined to release it. This prompted an emotional crisis, and Stacy sought therapy. She left the group shortly thereafter.

Her disappointment with Wild Orchid led to an addiction to ecstacy and crystal meth. She told a Glasgow paper: "I started doing Ecstasy. Then I got addicted to crystal methamphetamine. My weight dropped to 90 lb so I lied to my friends and said I was bulimic. Finally, I started going crazy."

On July 2003, she had a guest role on the Rocket Power special, Reggie's Big Beach Break, on Nickelodeon, voicing a fictitious pop music star named Shaffika.

In July 2005, Fergie was photographed at a San Diego concert after supposedly urinating on herself (the singer contended that it was simply sweat) The images became something of an internet phenomenon after they were widely circulated

>> Personal life
According to Adam Carolla, Fergie (when she was in Wild Orchid) was hitting on him at a party in front of his wife. He told the story on the May 16, 2006 episode of The Adam Carolla Show.

In May 2004, she was chosen as one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.

In July 2005, she became engaged to actor Josh Duhamel.

>> Solo career
Ferguson is embarking on a solo career, but she has said she considers it only a side project and will still continue to record and tour with the band. will.i.am confirmed her album is called Fergilicious. She has recorded the remake of the song "True" with fellow bandmate will.i.am for the soundtrack to 50 First Dates. Just recently,

she recorded two songs, "Won't Let You Fall" and "Bailamos" for the movie Poseidon, in which she also appeared.

Allen Pineda Lindo (b. 28 November 1974) is better known as apl.de.ap. He was born in the impoverished district of Sapang Bato in Angeles City in the province of Pampanga, Philippines. He is of Afro-Filipino descent.

apl.de.ap is part of a famous hip hop group, the Black Eyed Peas. During his rough childhood days, apl.de.ap grew up in Barrio Sapang Bato. At the age of 14, he was adopted by the Hudgens, an American family, and moved to Los Angeles, California, leaving behind his birth family and country. However, he has stayed very loyal to both his biological family and to the Philippines, identifying himself as a Filipino American. He explains his life story in a song called "The Apl Song" found on the Black Eyed Peas 2003 album Elephunk (Track 11). This song has a full chorus in Tagalog (Filipino) taken from the Asin song "Balita".

As a member of the popular rap group Black Eyed Peas, apl.de.Ap has overcome tremendous odds by achieving success despite his humble beginnings. In an interview on VH1, he recalls In the Philippines, you've got to dig up the ground to do a number two, and then you've got to cover it up. You got to pump the water out of the ground to wash your clothes and your hands. That's my ghetto! apl.de.Ap left Pampanga at age 14 to join his adoptive family in Southern California. There, he and childhood friend Will (aka will.I.Am) formed a break dancing crew called "Tribal Nation", which would later evolve into Black Eyed Peas when the duo added mike skills and rapper Jaime "Taboo" Gomez to the mix. Their first album, Behind the Front was released in 1998 to critical acclaim, and was followed by Bridging the Gap in 2000 featuring a guest appearance by Macy Gray as well as members of Jurassic 5 and De La Soul.

Unlike some Filipinos who have shied away from acknowledging their Pinoy roots, apl.de.Ap embraces his heritage, even in his work. His landmark "The Apl Song" from 2003's Elephunk, features a chorus sung completely in Tagalog and speaks of his experience as a Filipino American. Its accompanying video, which reached number one in the Philippines, with its cameo appearances by fellow Fil-Ams, Dante Basco and Chad Hugo, is a touching tribute to the Filipinos who fought for the U.S. in World War II. Also "Bebot" is an all-Tagalog song on Monkey Business.

Jaime Luis Gomez Taboo's (born July 14, 1975) in Rosemead, California, better known as Taboo Nawasha. He joined the Black Eyed Peas in 1995 (band mates Apl.de.ap and will.i.am were originally in a group called Atban Klann but they had to change the name after switching to another record label). He is of Mexican/Native American descent. Taboo's Native American roots are that of the Shoshone tribe. Taboo's step-father was born in Morelia, the capital of the state Michoacán, Mexico, whilst his mother, although born in Los Angeles, derives from North or South Dakota. He has one son named Joshua Parish Gomez, who was born when Taboo was 18.

Jaime has recently announced plans to launch an arts school (non-profit) for children living in his hometown of Rosemead, California. For full details go to: http://www.excite.contactmusic.com

Taboo's first acting gig will be in the film Dirty[1] with Wyclef Jean, playing the part of Ramirez. Unlike all of the other members of the Black Eyed Peas, Taboo is making his movie debut, all of the other members of the peas have already starred in movies.

On May 1, 2006, Taboo and the Pussycat Dolls were backstage on WWE RAW. Taboo said "My crew from the band and our opening act is here, we even brought the cat Dolls. When I was invited, everyone wanted to come along. Well, we’re all here."
