Everlast first emerged as a member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate before releasing his 1990 solo album, "Forever Everlasting." He then formed the pioneering rap group House of Pain with friends DJ Lethal and Danny Boy. Signed to legendary dance and hip-hop label Tommy Boy Records, the group went multi-platinum with their self-titled 1992 debut, which produced the rap anthem, "Jump Around."

After the demise of House of Pain, Everlast pursued a solo career, creating the alter ego Whitey Ford for the first album on his own, the multi-platinum "Whitey Ford Sings the Blues." He later earned a Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal Grammy for his collaboration with Carlos Santana, "Put Your Lights On." He has collaborated with many artists, including Madonna, Nice & Smooth, Dilated Peoples, Run DMC, Kurupt, Limp Bizkit, X-Ecutioners, Cypress Hill, Prince Paul, Cee-Lo, Daz Dillinger, KRS-One, Mack 10, KoRn, Prodigy, Mobb Deep and Swollen Members.

After undergoing surgery to replace a torn heart valve in 1998, Everlast revisited the Ford character in the critically acclaimed 2000 platinum solo album "Eat at Whitey's." He then recorded the Def Jam album "White Trash Beautiful."

"Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford," his newest album, was released via management company Three Ring Projects' innovative deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, allowing Everlast unprecedented artistic freedom in creating and distributing his music.
