Will.i.am isn’t shying away from sharing his true feelings about a pair of hip-hop legends.
During a recent interview with Hip Hop Confessions, the Black Eyed Peas member offered up a hot take regarding 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G.
“Like when people say 2Pac and Biggie, I’m such a Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul head that I don’t like 2Pac and Biggie,” the 47-year-old explained. “That kind of music doesn’t speak to my spirit. I like Boogie Down Productions, KRS-One, I like—if it’s like, 2Pac or Biggie? It’s KRS-One. Why those two?”
Will.i.am said he doesn’t “hold them up like that.” He continued, “I hold Eric B. and Rakim like that. 2Pac’s dope—don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I don’t think he’s dope. It spoke to the projects. My escape is De La/Tribe out the projects.”
