A quote from the man himself ‘we're from the projects - East L.A. On welfare the majority of our lives. A lot of my friends are dead and in prison, just like any urban person that comes from areas like I'm from. But my grandma was super-grandma. Ain't nobody mess with our family in my neighborhood because everybody loved my grandma. She was the one that prayed for everybody. We were one of the first families in the projects. And I moved them out. Music allowed me’.

 

He has come from poverty and his continued work ethic, continuing even now being worth millions is inspirational.

 

Another reason Will.i.am is an inspiration is his charity work..... Another quote ‘“I know my purpose is to continue to inspire young people because it’s just going to keep inspiring me back. I want to do my part. I want to invest in America’s future. I am here to let you know that you can be anything you want to be. You are the future of the world.” — will.i.am
