Everlast, Sick Jacken & Divine Styler Declare War Alongside B-Real, Vinnie Paz & More (Mixtape)
Long before Everlast made the whole world hear and feel “What It’s Like,” he was a slick-talking MC. The multi-talented Los Angeles, California resident (by way of New York) found major success with House Of Pain, but his days on wax stem back to the late 1980s, running with Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate. Twenty seven years ago next month, Ev’ dropped Forever Everlasting, which features one of the earliest appearances from Brand New Heavies’ N’Dea Davenport, as well as Ice, and Donald D.
While he has a Rock & Roll and acoustic guitar career going incredibly strong, Everlast has hardly abandoned his rhyme roots. In recent years, the onetime La Coka Nostra member appeared alongside Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and Cypress Hill/B-Real.
Today (February 21), the onetime Tommy Boy Records star bursts back with War Porn. The group features another Rhyme Syndicate O.G. in Divine Styler, as well as Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm). With the group of veterans together, they unleashed a self-titled mixtape, and a lot of supporting lyrical ammunition.
Big Daddy Kane, B-Real, Jedi Mind Tricks’ Vinnie Paz, Dilated Peoples’ Rakaa Iriscience, and Termanology help make out the guest list for the just-released mixtape. Like B-Real’s Serial Killers outfit with Xzibit and Demrick, this is a great way to recharge the fans, with a free-ninety-nine reminder that the skills are sharp, and these MCs have something to say.
This 11-track self-titled mixtape is also available for free download.
