Black Eyed Peas rapper taboo has lifted the lid on his colourful past in a tell-all memoir.
The hip-hop star, real name Jaime Luis Gomez, will release the autobiography, entitled Fallin' Up: My Story, on 8 February (11).
The book documents his upbringing in Los Angeles, how he met bandmates will.i.am and apl.de.ap in a club in the mid-'90s, and the band's rise to stardom.
Taboo will also delve into the darker aspects of his past - detailing his battles with booze and drugs and how he failed the son he fathered when he was just 18.
