Unchanging braids, a smile with 32 snow-white teeth and eternal restlessness - this is what Will.i.am fans of The Black Eyed Peas know. Will.i.am isn't just a member and co-founder of this super popular band. He is a successful rapper, lyricist, producer and fashion designer. And all these high-profile titles do not prevent him from still wearing pigtails and fooling around.
William James Adams Jr. (William James Adams Jr. - that's actually the name of the musician) was born on March 15, 1975. And not just anywhere in Jamaica, as some sources still claim, but in Los Angeles, California.
William never saw his father. The upbringing of the boy (as well as three more children in the family) was raised by his mother Debra Adams and grandmother Sarah Kane.
Debra Adams worked for the Keeping kids outta gangs community center - "Keep kids away from gangs." William also started working there at the age of 18. Largely thanks to the efforts of the mother and this center, Adams did not get into a criminal gang (and at that time it was very fashionable among young people).
In 1993, William graduated from Palisades High School and began to conquer musical heights.
