Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas isn't afraid to step outside the box.
On The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies), he helps elevate The Black Eyed Peas' signature sound to a whole new stratosphere. On the album, B.E.P. has incorporated flourishes of European electro and dance music into their unique hip hop, and it's a sonic concoction that's undeniable.
Taboo also pops up in Streetfighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, busting different kinds of moves than he's used to rocking on stage.
In this exclusive feature, he opened up his iTunes and shared his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com. Check it out below!
1. Michael Jackson
I'm listening to Michael Jackson, dude. I know it's cliché, but right now I'm all about Mike. Mike has been one of the biggest inspirations to our group. The fact that Will.i.am got to work with him and produce some of the songs on his hopefully his upcoming record is incredible. God forbid, those songs never get to see the light of day. They're amazing. Will played them for us, and we were blown away by the chemistry that they had on the record. Hands down, Michael Jackson was one of our biggest inspirations as far as performing and musical genius.
2. The Crookers
I'm listening to a lot of electro right now; we're in this electro mode!
