i was wondering if we could have someone play as Will.i.am....Apl de Ap....Fergie....Eazy-E....Kim Hill....and Taboo....and kind of play out what happened
- Apl de Ap and Will.i.am first meets and becomes friends & starts group
- Eazy-E hires them
- Will.i.am and Apl de Ap finds Taboo and hires him
- Kim Hills quits and Fergie is hired
-then Will.i.am goes to cd stored(bored out of his mind) looks at cd....thinks boring...listen....boring....listen again....likes...then work on recording
+works on beat
+records vocals at park like area
+finish putting together
