As a member of the popular rap group [[Black Eyed Peas]], Apl.de.Ap has overcome tremendous odds by achieving success despite his humble beginnings. In an interview on VH1, he recalls In the Philippines, you've got to dig up the ground to do a number two, and then you've got to cover it up. You got to pump the water out of the ground to wash your clothes and your hands. That's my ghetto! Apl.de.Ap left Pampanga at age 14 to join his adoptive family in Southern California. There, he and childhood friend Will (a.k.a. [[Will.I.Am]]) formed a break dancing crew called "Tribal Nation", which would later evolve into Black Eyed Peas when the duo added mike skills and rapper Jaime "Taboo" Gomez to the mix. Their first album, '''''[[Behind the Front]]''''' was released in 1998 to critical acclaim, and was followed by '''''[[Bridging the Gap]]''''' in 2000 featuring a guest appearance by Macy Gray as well as members of Jurassic 5 and De La Soul.
