Everlast

  • Erik Schrody (born August 18, 1969, in Valley Stream, New York), better known by his stage name Everlast, is a Irish-American rapper and singer-songwriter, best known for his hit "What It's Like", and for his genre-crossing mix of hip-hop and acoustic-based rock music.
  • He was the frontman for rap group House of Pain until 1996. In 2000, he won a Grammy for best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal with latin rock musician Carlos Santana performing Put Your Lights On on Santana's 1999 album Supernatural.
  • Everlast's second solo album Whitey Ford Sings the Blues (1998) – which was released a full eight years after his solo debut and after he had a major heart attack – was both a commercial and critical success (selling more than 3 million copies).
  • In 2000, a feud erupted between Everlast and Eminem. Eminem felt insulted by "Cock my hammer, spit a Comet like Haley. I'll buck a 380 on ones that act Shady" from Everlast's verse from the Dilated Peoples all star track "Ear Drums Pop (Remix)". Eminem believed it was a reference to his daughter. Eminem then in turn dissed Everlast several times in public and on the song "I Remember (Dedication To Whitey Ford)", mocking Everlast's rap/rock style, released as a b-side to the D12 12" vinyl single "Sh*t On You".
