Do you remember when the Black Eyed Peas were a respected Hip Hop outfit? Neither do they. Prior to the hiring of Stacy Ferguson, the Black Eyed Peas were a appreciated (all be it unsuccessful in term of sales) Hip Hop group. Due to a lack of sales, they altered their sound, hired a hot girl and literally redefined the term of “selling out” in the music industry.
As they sold out record after record and arena after arena, the Black Eyed Peas degenerated into to the lowest common musical denominator in every possible capacity. They may have hit a new low in a song about Fergie’s humps. Apparently, she is so hot that the other members of the Peas are incapable of doing anything else but worshiping her “little lumps”. It also apparently made them forget how to write good music.
