Will.i.Am has revealed that he is hurt that Hip Hop group, Black Eyed Peas, is not considered a Black group.
For years, the group were all POC, but then they added singer Fergie — a white pop singer.
“In 2004, Black Eyed Peas we, we were just trying to get on. When you think of — like, I’m a Black dude but when you think of Black Eyed Peas, we go so big that and it hurts, it still hurts a little bit that we’re not considered a Black group because we got that big,” said will.i.am. “And when you think of Black Eyed Peas, you don’t think of — it’s no longer urban or Black culture, which is… it’s not good for the black community that Black Eyed Peas is not looked at as a Black group because we had international success.”
“That should be credited to the Black community more so than letting it be adopted,” he added.
