Black Eyed Peas’ frontman Will.i.am is building his resume while his group takes a breather. The rapper/producer recently debuted a new automobile on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” that he’s been working called IAMAUTO.
The futuristic white vehicle was developed by Will to help create jobs in his Los Angeles neighborhood he grew up in.
Just like he did in the beginning with B.E.P., he invested his own money to bring the project to light.
“I’m a big technology freak and a geek and I invested my money in building my own vehicle ’cause I want to bring jobs to the ghetto that I come from,” Will explained to Jay Leno. “I invested in making a demo to start the Black Eyed Peas, now I want to invest to have a car company in the neighborhood where I come from.”
Will goes on to explain that the IAMAUTO was built using OEM parts from Chrysler and features a Beats By Dr. Dre sound system.
“It’s sick, it’s really fresh,” said Will.
Further details about the new vehicle was unknown.
Additionally, Will is also prepping his next album album, titled #willpower, due out later this year.
