''Is it cause we don't wear tommy hilfiger or baseball caps, we don't use dollars to represent, we just use our inner sense and talent''
From the song ''Fallin Up'' off their notoriously underlooked hip-hop album Behind The Front before Fergie came along & they were a hip-hop trio with a female vocalist Kim Hill accompanying them on some tracks
Black Eyed Peas to old fans are often called sell outs, not because they switched their music up though some will argue they strayed from their roots. But because of how they wrote the lyrics stated above in many of their songs & now have completely gone against their word
1) n. What company executives use when they want to feature people of color in their commercials.
Hmm... how will we apeal to today's young African-American market without losing caucasian customers... I know! We'll get the BEP! There's a group of blacks that white people can enjoy!
A rap group for white people who don't like rap.
First Bill Cosby
, now this shit. The Black Eyed Peas sold out, now they need to die out.
A former trio that decided to ruin their talent by adding a mediocre singer who can only bring ONE thing to their resume: commercial success.
Their first two albums prove that BEP had a whole lot of talent and, most importantly, ORIGINALITY.
Their third album had some good songs too, but now they're just bullshit. "boom boom pow" and "my humps"...WTF is this?
Old BEP FTW!
Black Eyed Peas fan: OMG IM SHAKIN MAH ASS TO DAT MY HUMPS SONG DAAAAAAYUM FERGIE DA BESSSS
Me: Cool story...
The Black Eyed Peas are a what-used-to-be trio from LA that had their own style of hip hop. They were creative, slick, and most of all their sound was breathtaking. Kim Hill was with the trio in certain songs until she left (unfortunately) and "Fergie" joined. (oh God...)
Their Behind The Front (1998) and Bridging The Gap (2000) were their only two great albums in which they channeled their art through breathtaking and prodigious poetry. When "Fergie" came, the trio decided to go along with her idea by fucking up their careers by making pop and dance music. It's a sad thing, knowing how talented the trio was...and still is.
It just goes to show what money can do to your mind...
Retard: OMG THE BLACK EYED PEAS MY HUMPS SONG WAS THE BOMB FERGIE IS THE HOTTEST BITCH EVER IM A LESBIAN SO ITS ALL GOOD.
a rap group for white people. Actually, they're not really a hip hop group, more like a pop-rap group (see 50-Cent).
"My Humps" pratically made them garbage. Honestly, my humps? What next, candy shop and laffy taffy?
They were good with that whole "where is the love" thing. But "My Humps" screwed them in the ass.
looks like an Old Navy commercial
I have to say Black Eyed Peas here
The group was good back in the day with Kim Hill.
Nowadays they're just way, WAY overrated, by idiots who don't really follow music, just listen to whatever the fuck. Most of them don't even know that Kim Hill got replaced by Fergie's hoe ass, which is probably the reason they are, again, overrated.
I just don't know what to say about the black eyed peas. Money didn't change them, Fergie did.
You know, the Black Eyed Peas got a review one time, saying that they had some of the most original beats ever. The people who did that review obviously haven't heard "Pump it" or whatever that song is called
A weird bean thing that people in the mid-west/south eat a lot. Can be found throughout the US. Has no real flavor, but has a consistency similar to kidney beans
Can you pass me the black eyed peas?
