The Black Eyed PeasThe Black Eyed Peas are the best selling hip hop group today. They have toured more countries than any other artist. This shows their worldwide appeal. The group is composed of Will.I.Am, Apl. De. Ap, Taboo, and Fergie. The group exploded onto the scene in 2003 with their smash album, Elephunk. Their first worldwide hit, Where Is The Love?, topped over ten charts all over the world. The Black Eyed Peas date back to 1988 when Will.IAm and Apl.De.Ap began performing around the Los Angeles area. They were signed to Eazy-Es record label, Ruthless Records, as the Atban Klann. After Eazy-Es death they evolved and changed their name to The Black Eyed Pods and then eventually to The Black Eyed Peas. They then signed to Interscope Records but didnt gain mainstream attention until Fergie, a dynamic female vocalist, joined the group. From then on the platinum albums and Grammy awards kept on coming (Dipdive). BACK
This refers to corruption of the Center Intelligence Agency (CIA), which is a part of the United States government. CIA corruption includes warrantless spying on U.S. citizen and covering up drug trading for their own profit. The CIA was tapping into unsuspecting citizens phones and listening to their private conversations. There has been a history of corruption from the CIA including the disinformation about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. While the CIA does some good they also do some wrong. The Black Eyed Peas reference this (Stich).corruption of the Center Intelligence Agency
BACK The Bloods are a street gang in Los Angeles, California. The Black Eyed Peas refer to the Bloods branching out across the U.S. The Bloods have had violent encounters with many different gangs including the Crips. They are identified by their red color and worn by their members. They are also identified by their distinct gang symbols which consists of hand signs. Blood members have also been found in the U.S. military. The Bloods have been apart of organized crime which includes robberies, murders, and drug trafficking. The Black Eyed Peas wanted to give more recognition to the wrong which has been occurring for over three decades (Phelan).been found in the U.S. military
BACK The Crips originated in Los Angeles, California in the late 1960s. They are one of the largest, oldest, and most infamous street gangs the Los Angeles area. Like the Bloods, the Crips are involved in gang activity like murders, drug dealing, and extortion. They rival the Bloods and have been in gang warfare for many decades. If the Crips ever become more structured, they could become a more serious problem in disturbing the peace. The Black Eyed Peas are trying to get the message out to stop gang violence before a lot of innocent civilians get killed (Lewis).rival the Bloods
BACK The KKK, Ku Klux Klan, are a racist, anti-Semetic group that uses violence to reach their goals of racial segregation. They also believe in white supremacy. They first emerged after the Civil War and were only against African Americans and people who helped them. Later their anger and violence grew to minority groups as well as Jews. The Black Eyed Peas talk about trying to extinguish this type of racist violence that still lives in the United States today. If less people lived in fear, then there would be less tension between different races. The KKK now has over 5,000 members all throughout the U.S. They are strongest in the southern states (ADL).southern states
BACK Discrimination is still around today even though laws and bills have been passed to ensure equality throughout the United States. Some would say that discrimination is more blatant in the world that we live in. People discriminated against have either just accepted the fact that they are going to be treated unfairly or others simply demand respect. Discrimination goes back to when the first men ever walked the earth. Somebody discriminated against another for certain handicap and thats how it all began. Discrimination can only fully be extinguished parents decide to teach their children at an early age about equality (Constantin).ensure equality
BACK These lyrics are talking about children imitating the behavior that they see in the movies. More specifically, they are imitating violence. This may make them more aggressive and put others in danger. If they see Brad Pitt or George Clooney doing something violent, then they might think its cool to copy those actions. This is much like how our pop culture makes smoking look cool. Now advertisements are made to counteract that. In the future, if this behavior gets out of hand, advertisements may have to be made to prohibit these types of acts (Peters).violence
This is an a a a a rhyme scheme. It is very simple but it gets the message across. Usually, in hip hop music, you will see this type of rhyme scheme. This only has one rhyme scheme operating through most of the whole song except the chorus. BACK
This flashback takes the listener back to 9/11 and the horrible attacks that occurred on United States soil. This attack was from terrorists from foreign soil. Terrorists hijacked commercial airplanes and flew them into government buildings like the Twin Tours and Pentagon. These lyrics talk about trying to halt these type of attacks and protecting the nation.
BACK The Love is repeated to emphasize a point. Basically this is stating that there is enough violence throughout the world and we need to counteract it with love and peace. To get their point across, the Black Eyed Peas repeat this phrase. It also makes a catchy chorus for the listener to sing-a-long with.
BACK These lyrics have a timeless and universal theme. It makes the listener feel shameful that people cannot set aside their differences for a peaceful life. Wars and violence have been going on since the beginning of time and they happen everywhere. That makes this statement recognizable to all races, ages, and religions.
BACK The Black Eyed peas have a serious tone throughout the song. They do convey sad and hopeful emotion through parts of the song. It is meant to persuade the listener to change the world even if it only makes a small impact. The chorus gives a cry for help to reestablish a better world. Overall the song is to make you think about what is happening around you.
