Overview


The life story of actor, producer, songwriter, singer, rapper, and member of the Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas
 
Tracing the rise to fame and fortune of William James Adams, Jr., this biography explores his troubled childhood and shows how his early love of flamboyant dress and his talent to rap saved him from the sad fates that befell many of his friends and neighbors. Bringing the story up to date, it reveals the truth behind his self-confessed "freak out" in 2008, his mixed fortunes as a manager, his relationship with pop star Cheryl Cole, and his time as a judge on The Voice UK. It also discusses his stint carrying the Olympic torch, the time he's spent working alongside NASA on a project designed to inspire children to get involved in science, and his philanthropic work. This is the perfect book for fans of this enigmatic individual, at last revealing the truth behind the shades.
