Apl.de.ap

Allan Pineda Lindo, Jr. (born November 28, 1974) better known as apl.de.ap ("Apple D Ap"), is a Filipino-American rapper, record producer, and occasional drummer who is best known as a member of The Black Eyed Peas. Pineda was born in Sapang Bato, Angeles City, Pampanga, in the Philippines, to a Filipino mother and an African-American father. His father, an Airman stationed at Clark Air Base, abandoned the family shortly after his birth; his mother, Cristina Pineda, raised him and his six younger siblings as a single mother. As a child, apl.de.ap would make an hour-long jeepney trip to and from school, and helped his family subsist by farming sweet potatoes, corn, sugar cane and rice. The Pearl S. Buck Foundation, an organization that finds healthier living environments for young abandoned or orphaned Amerasian children, matched him with a sponsor named Joe Ben Hudgens through a dollar-a-day program.
