The Black Eyed Peas are to go on hiatus after they wrap up their current tour.
The band is on the road in Europe with its The Beginning shows, but has now confirmed they will step away from the music industry once they play their final show in Madrid, Spain on 14 July (11).
However, the rapper is adamant the hiatus will not spell the end of the group.
In a post on his page, he writes, "The Bep (Black Eyed Peas) will take a break after The Beginning... just like we did from Monkey Business to The E.N.D (albums)... but it doesn't mean we stop creating."
