House Of Pain
Label: Tommy Boy Music
Before he made the transition to guitar-strumming country-rock singer, Everlast rolled with Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate and the Cypress Hill affiliates House Of Pain. Thanks to an addictive beat from DJ Muggs, HoP raced up the charts with their rabble-rousing anthem "Jump Around," included here. The album is more of the same: uptempo jams and lots of rowdy rhymes.
