Black Eyed Peas Bio
The Black Eyed Peas got their start in 1988 when will.i.am (born William James Adams Jr.) and apl.de.ap (born Allan Pineda) began rapping and performing together around Los Angeles. The pair signed to Ruthless Records (run by Eazy-E) after catching the attention of the nephew of Jerry Heller (Eazy-E’s manager). Along with Mookie Mook (Burning Star), Dante Santiago & DJ Motiv8, they called their group “Atban Klann”. Their debut album, Grass Roots, was never released because Ruthless did not consider the social themes reflected in the group’s music to be marketable to their audience.
After Eazy-E died of AIDS in 1995, Atban Klann changed their name to The Black Eyed Peas; will.i.am explained on the front cover of the Monkey Business album that “Black Eyed Peas are food for the soul”, hence the name. will.i.am has cited the Red Hot Chili Peppers as an influence and said he named his band after a food, like them. They replaced their original third member Mookie, with Dante Santiago the Peas original singer. Then Taboo (born Jaime Gomez) joined the group. In 1996, they produced and appeared on a song entitled “That’s Right” for Brian Austin Green’s hip-hop album One Stop Carnival. Later, they began using 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.
The group were signed to Interscope Records and released their debut, Behind the Front, in 1998. The album won the group (and their accompanying live band, the Bucky Jonsons) critical acclaim. The album featured the single “Joints & Jams”, which was included on the Bulworth soundtrack. Their second album, Bridging the Gap, was released in 2000; it featured the single “Request + Line” featuring Macy Gray.
