“Black Eyed Peas” member and multi-millionaire apl.de.ap (Allan Pineda Lindo) has plenty of cash, but he’s retained his humility.
The 41-year old rapper has reportedly applied for a minimum wage job at Walmart discount store in Panorama Mall, Panorama City, California.
“apl.de.ap walked into the shop and inquired about the job advertised in our window. We were all in shock,” said Hugh Banks, the Walmart manager who spoke with the rapper about the open position.
A witness tells LA Times that Banks initially chuckled at Lindo , thinking it was a joke. Once he realized that he was serious, though, he gave him all of the relevant information.
Page Six estimates that Lindo has a net worth of $16 million. The job will reportedly pay $10.65 or just a bit more than P500, per hour.
Apparently, the rapper just wants to get back to his roots. A spokesperson from Walmart told Daily Beast that the singer had previously applied for a job with the company before he became involved with Black Eyed Peas. Panorama residents regularly see Lindo out and about around town, and a community member who runs into him frequently said, “He is very down to earth and likes the simple things in life.” Simple things, indeed.
Apl.de.ap is a a Filipino-American and a founding member of hit group “Black Eyed Peas”. For 18 years, Lindo have been busy with the group, and if he will get the job at Walmart, he may probably ask a lot of leave from the band.
