    Default A short story about Eazy E and Will I Am



















    Jerry Heller makes the following allegations in his book, "Ruthless."
    "Will 1X, aka William Adams, grew up in South Central and shared a lot of the same turf as Eazy-E but their philosophies couldn't have been more different. Will connected to the peace and love tradition of the sixties."


    When Will 1X came to "Ruthless," with a music video that he had done. It looked fantastic. Since Eazy was enthusiastic about the project, I bought the video for $5,000 dollars. Will soon started working on his album but it never seemed to get finished. It eventually entered the black hole that a lot of recording projects fall into."
    "He ain't never going to finish that record," Eazy told me after working with Will for a year.



    "We got to cut him and his group loose and let them go somewhere else." So we did.


    Will changed his name to Will I. AM. and his band's name to the "Black Eyed Peas," and the rest is history.

    Will.I.Am and Apl recorded an album for Ruthless Records in the early '90s as part of a trio called Atban Klahn. this thread made me go back and check on discogs for them and if that information is correct the group completed their album for Ruthless who released a promo copy of it - http://www.discogs.com/Atban-Klann-G...elease/5875630

    there is also a 12" release for the song "Puddles Of H20" which is pretty dope

    I'll pass on the Black Eyed Peas music hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I'm surprised Eazy E and Jerry Heller signed them to Ruthless because they were different than the other artists on the record label. I thought Eazy E would laugh at them when they came to Ruthless to try to get a record contract because their music isn't gangsta LOL.


    About that life

    maybe they were thinking about diversifying their sound, thus broadening their purchasing demographic

    will be checking out that early BEP music soon, thanks for posting it

    POP THE BLUE PILL AND GO N.I.
