2018 release. Platinum-selling artist Everlast returns with his first full-length studio album of original material since 2011’s Songs of the Ungrateful Living. Whitey Ford’s House of Pain is his seventh solo studio effort overall. The 12-track release offers an eclectic stylistic sampling from throughout Everlast’s nearly-three-decade-long journey. The doomy, apocalyptic rap of the first single, “The Culling,” which Everlast describes as one of his “chain-of-thought songs like ‘Black Jesus’,” offers a chilling dystopian vision that blasts “lying politicians,” while warning about threats to our freedom. There’s the self-analytical “The Climb,” a song which in part references his own defenses as well as his eight-year-old’s ongoing battle with cystic fibrosis, one of the chief reasons behind the long gap between records. Watching her suffer fuels his anger and challenging of God’s existence in “One of Us,” while the dirty delta blues of “Show Your Roll” suggests a dark glimpse of a world with the chilling Boyz N’ The Hood refrain, “You wanna see a dead body?” and a growling vocal hook provided by Aloe Blacc, taking us back to his underground hip-hop roots. Everlast is best-known to most fans for his single ‘What It’s Like’ and as the frontman of House of Pain (‘Jump Around’).
