How is this even real life? This dude must have the craziest P.R. agent in the world to pull off scoring an actual book deal. It even says “of The Black Eyed Peas” on the cover because dude has negative zero facial recognition points.

Imagine working for this publisher and they’re like, “Hey Steve, can you hop in on this Taboo autobiography call real quick?”

How fucking bummed is that dude? He had to spend non-refundable hours of his actual life listening to fucking Taboo talk about his “multi-racial” upbringing. The first chapter probably starts off like, “It was really rough growing up as a Native Asian-Mexican kid blah blah blah boom boom pow….”

After it was written, the marketing department was like, “We’re gonna play the addiction card on the book jacket,” as if THAT was what had people on the fence before buying this shit. I mean the book cover alone just screams that this book is sold exclusively to kids who are sent to At Risk Youth facilities.

Without reading more than the allotted preview available on Amazon, I will attempt to summarize this book for any would be buyers (i.e. prepubescent Asian girls who are allowed to pick their “own” book out as a reward for getting an A++ on their last geography test).

Key points in the life of Taboo (the Native Asian-Mexican looking dude who apparently is in The Black Eyed Peas):

  • I started break-dancing.
  • I found my first pair of weird ass boots.
  • I met two other dudes and we started rapping and kissing each other’s penises.
  • We found some meth head named Fergie to sing hooks.
  • We got paid for life.
  • People still don’t know who I am.


That’s the whole book, more or less.

    You didn’t mention the part where he talks about the dark days of his $100-a-month coke habit. For real.

  2. Drippy Dog Dix and Cum Bubbles or Something says:

    Huh? Either you’re retarded or this is some kind of troll. This dude is in one of the most famous groups in the world, why wouldn’t some shitty publisher want to make a few quick bucks off their fans?

    @Chapter After – I was thinking the same thing. I’ve heard this joke recycled and done better several times.

  8. Zippy says:

    Native Asian-Mexican???? What the hell is that? Like my “pure bred mongrel” dog?

    I loved the Black Eyed Peas performance at the Super Bowl. Especially the part where Jim Rome gave them props the following day on his radio show because “It’s obvious that they weren’t lip-synching”. HAHAHAHAHA

  20. chRon says:

    Does anyone remember when the Black Eyed Peas were an actual hip hop group with thoughtful lyrics and smooth Pete-Rock-Esque beats? Joints & Jams for all you clueless cunts who were born in the ’90s.
