Cool Covers: Everlast

Everlast is a rapper and songwriter best known for his guest appearance on Santana’s 1999 smash Supernatural, singing “Put Your Lights On.”  The former frontman for House Of Pain had his own hit album Whitey Ford Sings The Blues (1998) but his subsequent efforts have not been as popular.  His new album Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford has a cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”  Everlast’s version puts his vocal and instrumentation over a sample of those Cypress Hill “Insane In The Brain” kinda beats.
