Will.i.am Reveals David Faustino’s Role In His First Record Deal

will.i.am says that Married.With Children actor David Faustino was a vital component to his landing his first record deal. “I wouldn’t have got my record deal with Eazy-E at 17 years old if it wasn’t for David Faustino,” Will explained to HipHopDX. “Being signed to Ruthless came from going to his clubs. There was this cornerstone in L.A. underground culture in 1991-1993 and it was this dope club at the Whiskey [called Balistyx].” Whiskey A Go-Go is a legendary bar in LA that has been graced with several legendary performances in the years prior to Faustino taking over. “[We were rocking] the same stage that The Doors started on and that’s where I got my start,” recalled Will. “I thank David Faustino for being that open minded, and having an all-ages Hip Hop club at that time.” Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com.
