The history of The Black Eyed Peas began in 1989 when will.i.am met Apl.de.ap. At that moment, they weren’t famous American rappers.The two teenagers attended the same high school and had the same music preferences. The future celebrities formed a duo called Atbam Klann.

Artists began performing in Los Angeles nightclubs. They became popular in local rap and breakdance communities. In 1992, the duo signed a contract with Ruthless Records, which was valid until 1995. In three years, two rappers didn’t manage to release a debut LP, no matter how hard they tried since the label wasn’t too successful. They canceled the contract when Eazy-E, the label’s CEO, died.

In 1995, the rappers were joined by Taboo, who used to perform with the band called Grassroots. After that, the artists decided to rename the band and came up with the legendary Black Eyed Peas (without “the” at first). All three members had a different heritage, Mexican, African American, and Filipino.

Musicians signed a contract with Interscope Records. In 1998, they presented the debut LP, Behind the Front. The album earned many positive reviews from the critics. One of the singles, "Joints & Jam", became the soundtrack to the movie Bullworth, which came out the same year.
