DBD: Gaza City Blues – Everlast

Has of recent events Everlast diesen Song veröffentlicht, which free downloaded here can be. Der Künstler selbst dazu:

This song for me is about a karmic responsibility we all share for each other. Whether it be in Gaza or young girls being kidnapped in Nigeria or young men being gunned down or beaten to death by police here in the good old USA we are all responsible for each other and if we don’t start acting like it we will all „Pay so dearly for it „.

Finally someone, the sums it up in words: „We are all responsible for each other, and if we don’t start acting like it we will all pay so dearly for it“.

An Acoustic Evening With Everlast – Intimate, authentic and sustainable

Zwei Stühle, a keyboard and an acoustic guitar, much more needs Everlast not, um sich auf der Bühne wohlzufühlen. Die Rap-Attitüde hat der Amerikaner seit einem Jahr in den Keller verbannt, after having „house of pain“ 2012 zum 20-jährigen Bandjubiläum auf Tour war, he now has enough of it. „Hip-Hop gehört den Jungen“, erklärt er im Interview. „While I will still rapping in the studio, aber für so exzessive Tourneen bin ich zu alt.“ Today, he describes himself and his Music more than „pure hip hop“, but ultimately it comes around storytelling. Because it does not matter, ob man als MC oder als Singer/Songwriter die Gefolgschaft an seinen Lebensgeschichten teilhaben lässt. Everlast has learned in recent years, how to ausreizen the deep timbre of his institution. His voice sounds this evening anyway, als hätte er in den letzten 25 Never done anything else years. Die Stimmung im ausverkauften Kofmehl konnte besser nicht sein und der mittlerweile komplett ergraute New Yorker Mittvierziger konnte mit seiner eineinhalbstündiger Singer and Songwriter-Performance absolut begeistern.

An Acoustic Evening With Everlast

Es bedarf keiner zwei Songs um die Wohlfühlatmosphäre auf der Bühne auch in die ausverkaufte Location zu übertragen. Es gibt wahrlich nicht viele Künstler, die dermassen authentisch zwischen zwei – oberflächlich betrachtet – grundverschiedenen Musikgenres hin- und herpendeln können wie Everlast. Der ehemalige House Of Pain-Frontmann will Geschichten erzählen. Whether using a complete DJ sets or only acoustic: Everlast is and remains a lyric Wizard, der den musikalischen Background nur als Soundtrack für seine Erzählungen nutzt. The heisernen baritone Erik Schrody (so Everlasts bürgerlicher Name) vermag sich keiner zu entziehen und so brennt sich dieser im kollektiven Gedächtnis mit seinem Blues fixed. Es braucht nicht viel für ein intimes Concert. Nämlich einen Keyboarder und einen Mann an der Gitarre. Den Rapper sieht man ihm allerhöchstens am etwas weitgeschnittenen Kleidungsstil an. Everlast sings, the beak as it has grown and this fact, it is thanks to, that he lines as „I Kill Anyone For You“ can give of, without, that someone Fear vor ihm haben müsste. Der Künstler selbst wirkt in seiner spärlichen Instrumentalisierung sehr zufrieden und die Stimmung im Kofmehl ist nicht nur heiss, but boiling. So sweaty, that Everlast always wieder seine Gitarre und sein Gesicht mit einem Tuch abwischen muss und man sich wünschte, der Gig hätte in einem kleinen, smoky club place and not in the sold-out Kofmehl.

Everlast - Stone in My Hand ( Kofmehl 21.10.13 )

„I have played at shows always a few acoustic numbers. With time, it became increasingly. Und viele gefielen mir so besser als in den ursprünglichen Rock-Arrangements, because this is the form, in which I write.“ So hat Everlast im Frühjahr die CDLife Acoustic“ released, the acoustic versions of his most famous songs (inklusive des House-Of-Pain-Hits „Jump Around“) summarizes. „To write songs and lyrics is my life“, he says. „Dafür verehre ich Tom Waits und Bill Withers: Deren Songs sind ewig gültig. Today's rap but is 90 Prozent Mist. Since there is no more evidence, that sell only the kids but more fashion or – worse – Drugs. The rappers of today are more slaves of large corporations, to have no interest in anything than a fat bank account.“ With songs like „Black Jesus“ Everlast has itself already written some songs, which are still relevant today in its social criticism. Was ihn inhaltlich aber nicht stört: „Who says, dass wir uns als Gesellschaft weiterentwickeln müssen? Ich schreibe über die Natur der Menschen und die dreht sich wie alles in der Natur im Kreis. There is never a time without war, Give corruption and hunger – as I have no illusions. Halte ich das für falsch? Naturally! Also werde ich nicht aufhören, über diese Dinge zu schreiben und aufzuschreien, if I find some, that my Government is building shit.“

An Acoustic Evening With Everlast

Between songs, the New Yorker takes repeatedly time, to reminisce. Everlast hat in seinem Leben viel erlebt und er lässt seine Anhängerschaft gerne daran teilhaben. Erik Schrody does not mince his words. Seine Anhängerschaft bedankt sich wahlweise andächtig lauschend oder frenetisch jubelnd. The earthiness, die der Sänger ausstrahlt ist beeindruckend. He dedicated the song „Stone in My Hand“ the imprisoned Women Of „Pussy Riot“ and has a Ehrlich there. As in the slow, acoustic version of the „house of pain“-Classic „Jump Around“ The following are some of the spectators lyrical invitation, ist er sichtlich überrascht. „I did not think, dass man zu dieser Version tatsächlich hüpfen kann“, he says. „You have proven me wrong.“ Das Duo fährt so ziemlich alles auf, Everlast what the catalog has to offer and remain the Kofmehl not hit guilty. Of „Black Jesus“ Uber „white Trash beautiful“ up to „what It’s Like“ lacked nothing. Leise und aufbrausende Passagen sowie das Spiel mit der Dynamik beherrschen Everlast und sein Keyboarder äusserst gut, thereby minimally orchestrated music never gets boring.

An Acoustic Evening With Everlast

Everlast saw the banner on the balcony of a young woman, stood on the „Please Play Maybe“. „I saw your sign“, sagt der stämmige Amerikaner und erfüllt ihren Wunsch, obwohl er den Song offensichtlich länger nicht mehr gespielt hatte, „I'm just trying to remember the song.“ Here we go with a lot of improvisation and short breaks, to search for the right chords. „Sorry, but I do not think, that we have ever played the song live.“ and when he transgressed, He looked at the Boy Woman with guilt conscious dog look and shrugged his shoulders apologetically. The audience is beside himself. Besser kann ein Konzert wohl kaum laufen und das war der Moment des Abends und unterstrich die Authentizität des Mannes auf der Bühne. Der Amerikaner verfügt über eine Ausstrahlung, die dafür sorgt, that people eat out of his hand, was spätestens bei den nicht enden wollenden „NaNaNa“-Gesängen von „Put Your Lights On“ was good to see. Everlast sorgte im Kofmehl für Gänsehaut und der Sound von ihm erzeugt stets Bilder im Kopf. Nach knapp eineinhalb Stunden ist endgültig Schluss, although many still hope, that the „White Devil“ noch einmal blicken lässt, but it did not work. Ein grossartiger Abend mit einem noch viel grossartigeren Künstler, where one is only the performance according to the appearance in a small bar, with much less people, bei Whiskey und Zigarre gewünscht hätte.

Everlast 'Jump Around?' Official Music Video

Pack it up, pack it in
Let me begin
I came to win
Battle me that’s a sin
I won’t tear the sack up
Punk you’d better back up
Try and play the role and yo the Whole crew will act up
Get up, Stand up, Come on!
Come on, throw your hands up
If you’ve got the feeling jump up touch the ceiling
Muggs is a funk fest, someone’s talking junk
I, I’ll bust em in the eye
And then I’ll take the punks home
Feel’in, funk’in
Amps it are junking
And I got more rhymes than there’s cops that at a dunkin
Donut shop
Sure ’nuff I got props from the kids on the Hill
Plus my mom and my pops

Chorus

I came to get down (2x)
So get out your seats and jump around
Jump Around (3x)
Jump up Jump up and get down.
Jump (17x)

I’ll serve your ass like John MacEnroe
If your girl steps up, I’m smacking the ho
Word to your moms I came to drop bombs
I got more rhymes than the bible’s got psalms
And just like the Prodigal Son I’ve returned
Anyone stepping on me you’ll get burned
Cause I got Lyrics but you ain’t got none
If you come to battle bring a shotgun!
But if you do you’re a fool, cause I duel to the death
Try’in ta step to me you’ll take your last Breath
I got the skill, come get your fill
Cause when I shoot ta give, I shoot to kill

Chorus

I’m the Cream of the crop, I rise to the top
I never eat a pig cause a pig is a cop
Or better yet a terminator
Like Arnold Schwarzenegger
Try’n to play me out like as if my name was Sega
But I ain’t going out like no punk bitch
Get used to one style and you know I might switch
It up up and around, then buck buck you down
Put out your head then you wake up in the Dawn of the Dead
I’m coming to get ya, coming to get ya
Spitting out lyrics homie I’ll wet ya

Chorus
Jump (32x)

Album Review: Everlast – The Life Acoustic

Year 2012 showed the Grammy winner and multi-platinum sellers Erik Francis Schrody aka Whitey Ford aka Everlast with his acoustic solo concerts from a new perspective. After his hugely successful time with „house of pain“, the genre anthems like „Jump Around“ brought forth, schockte Everlast 1998 mit seinem Soloalbum „“Whitey Ford Sings The Blues“ regelrecht den einen oder anderen alten Fan. In the of blues, Folk, Country und Rap inspirierten Album demonstrierte er eindrucksvoll sein stimmliches und musikalisches Können. Titles like „Ruth is, quite a classy womanwhat it’s like“ und ““Put Your Lights On“” wurden zu Welthits, sorgten für über 3 Million albums sold and brought Everlast a Grammy. Also, the following records „Eat At Whitey’s“ or „white Trash beautiful“ found their buyers and so the conversion went from rapper to the man with guitar, man hätte es ja nicht für möglich gehalten. Today now has a brand new, zwölf Titel umfassende Akustik-Album“The Life Acoustic” veröffentlicht.

Everlast - The Life Acoustic

For „house of pain“ Was Everlast Songschreiber und Sänger bevor er sich Ende der Neunziger Jahre völlig neuen Gefilden zuwandte. His solo album „Whitey Ford Sings The Blues“ hit like a bomb. Blues, Folk, Country und Rap waren die Musikstile, mit welchen der Sänger sein ungeheures Potenzial und seine musikalische Kreativität demonstrierte. Zusammen mit Carlos Santana wurde er für den Song „Put Your Lights On“ won a Grammy. Now he pulls the plug and provides an acoustic album from, on which he offers a lot. It seems almost, als würde er sich noch einmal ein Stück weit neu erfinden. His interpretations and his voice have much of the style of a Tom Waits or Nick Cave.

Everlast - "Sad Girl" (Live CraveOnstage Performance)

The opener „Sad Girl“ lädt so richtig zum Chillen und Abhängen mit einem guten Glas Wein oder einem Whiskey ein, order of the grueling „Black Jesus“, which the album „Eat At Whitey’s“ springs, abgelöst zu werden. „today“ and „broken“ carry on, wo Herr Schrody aufgehört hat. Da stört es auch Niemanden, that the songs are already known and are now presented simply in a different version. Spätestens hier zeigt sich die grandiose Stimme von Everlast, on „The Life Acoustic“ inherent in the songs from start to finish. „The Acoustic Life“ ist überhaupt ein Unplugged-Album, worthy of the name. Here, no band is moved up with drums and all the trimmings. In fast jedem Song ist die Stimme von Everlast zusammen mit einer Gitarre zu hören und nicht mehr, And no less. Schrody hat enorme Singer/Songwriter-Qualitäten und seine Arrangements sind stimmig und stimmungsvoll. Seine Stimme überzeugt und tritt in diesen akustischen Interpretationen noch stärker hervor.

Everlast

The tracks do not automatically get a melancholic touch. Everlast knows how great the tracks so to arrange, the always still some light through the darkness seems. And a track like „Stone in My Hand“ sounds in acoustic version even a lot more like an accusation, than the original. Even the more spirited tracks like „Weakness“ or „Children’s Story“ gorgeously fit. „My Medicine“ is a classic country number, also again with piano accompaniment. With „Lonely Road“ and „Grandma’s Hand“ He even provides two blues-folk numbers in the tradition of Railroad Songs of Woodie Guthrie or Pete Seeger from. Aber auch House Of Pain werden nicht vernachlässigt und so bietet Everlast als letzten Song den Knaller „Jump Around“ als akustische Version an. It can work? And, it works, and even better than expected.

Everlast - "Stone in My Hand" (Live CraveOnstage Performance)

Is sympathetic to the whole album, that Everlast fast jeden Song mit Titel ankündigt, before he begins to sing. All in all, „The Life Acoustic“ All Ages, grooviges Stück Music, das weitere neue Facetten im künstlerischen Repertoire von Everlast aufzeigt. The album is rounded and coherent, everything fits and fascinated. Who wants to relax once a three-quarter hour and recharge your batteries, für den ist das Album genau das Richtige, for the man and his guitar work perfectly. One wonders, wieso Everlast die Songs nicht schon von Beginn an rein als akustische Werke veröffentlicht hat. They have the right stuff and it's not even a lie, if one claims, that certain songs sound even better without electricity. The minimalist implementation of the cover fits the presentation of songs. Thank Everlast! So also makes music fun without power!

  1. Sad Girl
  2. Black Jesus
  3. today
  4. broken
  5. Stone in My Hand
  6. Weakness
  7. Children’s Story

DBD: Folsom Prison Blues – Everlast

Everlast - Folsom Prison Blues

Who you trying to get Crazy with Whitey
Don’t you know I’m loco?

I hear that train a-comin‘
Comin‘ around the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine
Since I don’t know when

I’m stuck in Folsom Prison
Time keeps draggin‘ on
Andthat train just keeps a-rollin‘
On down to San Antone

When I was just a baby
My mama told me, its
Always be a good boy
Don’t ever play with guns

But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin‘
I hang my head and cry

I bet there’s rich folks eatin‘
From a fancy dining car
They’re probably drinking whiskey
And smoking big cigars

Well, I know I had it coming
I know I can’t be free
Those people keep a-movin‘
And that’s what tortures me

If they freed me from this prison
If that railroad train was mine
I’d probably move it just a little
Farther down the line

Far from Folsom Prison
That’s where I long to stay
And I’d let that lonesome whistle
Blow out my Blues Away

DBD: I Get By – Everlast

Im Oktober veröffentlichte Everlast his new album „Songs Of The Ungrateful Living“. Here the Video and the Lyrics to „I Get By“. Great song, great album!

Everlast - I Get By

Government man keep calling my house
talking ‘bout i owe, harassing my spouse.
Gotta park my truck on another block
cause the sub-prime loan got my ass in hock.
Gotta couple good friends with helping hands
I need a brand new job with a health care plan.
They closed the plant, they stole my job
told me crime don’t pay unless you ask the mob.

So i smoke a little grass, drink a little wine.
Watch a little tube, try to kill a little time.
And every single day i fall a little more behind.
But i’m paying it no mind, it’ll all be fine.

Chorus
I Get By (got it good)
I barely get by (got it good)
I barely get by
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie
I barely get by
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie (got it good)

Party people in the place to be
Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
It’s on and on till the brake of dawn
Got to keep the rent paid and the power on
Yes yes y’all and it never stops.
I don’t trust the government, i don’t trust no cops.
We dip and we dive and we socialize
We struggle and we strive just to stay alive.

I Get By
I barely get by

When I finally anekatips get home I can’t Relax.
cause i’ve been over worked and i’ve been over taxed.
My bank accounts empty, all my cards are maxed.
and i ain’t looking for no pity, i’m just stating the facts.

I voted for some Change and it’s kinda strange,
No it’s all i got in my pocket.
I bought a few led’s, now i’m growing some trees,
And it’s a Sweet fking hustle don’t knock it.

I told y’all before i would break the law
to put some food in my baby girl’s belly.
cause the senator man took a bribe in hand
And went and shipped my job to new delhi.

Chorus
I Get By (got it good)
I barely get by (got it good)
I barely get by
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie
I barely get by
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie (got it good)

Party people in the place to be
Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
It’s on and on till the brake of dawn
Got to keep the rent paid and the power on
Yes yes y’all and it never stops.
I don’t trust the government
I don’t trust no cops.
I dip and i dive and i socialize
I struggle and i strive just to stay alive.

Chorus

Stone in My Hand "New Everlast video"

Ride with the devil, hide with the lord
I got no pistol, ain’t got no sword
I got no army, ain’t got no land,
Ain’t got nothing but the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
Ain’t got nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

You say you want a revolution, well get on board
We’ll start a new crusade; we’ll start a holy war
Don’t need no orders don’t need no plan
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

You build your fighter jets you drop your bombs,
You kill our fathers you kill our moms
You kill our brother and our sisters, and our uncles and our aunts
Still I’m fighting with the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
Still I’m fighting with the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
All the love that’s in my heart and the stone that’s in my hand

Blood runs in the gutters, smoke fills the sky
Every son that suffers every Mother cries
So if you’ve had enough and you’re ready for your stand
I’ll be waiting with the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I’ll be waiting with the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
All the love that’s in my heart and the stone that’s in my hand

La Coka Nostra - The Stain

Keep an eye out for your soul, girl
Don’t let them devils take it away
All that glitters is not gold, girl
Hollywood is a dangerous place to play
Keep an out for your soul, girl
Cause ain’t nothing getting rid of the stain
The hills are dark, the hills are cold, girl
They’re soaked in blood, they’re draped in pain

[Show 1: Ill Bill]

Her heels clicking on the black asphalt
Her beauty’s a pistol and a passport
I couldn’t tell her nothin, Look what her titties and her ass bought
You never asked what that cost, tell her that she can’t afford it
Next thing you know she gotta have it, she can’t avoid it
Champagne dreams, caviar wishes
Barely eighteen with bad intentions
Baby take heed, don’t just laugh
And stress the fact I’m in the music business
Accuse me of using bitches
You’re probably right, that guarantees it’s the truth I’m spittin’
Trust nobody, question everything
The only thing certain is death eventually
And how perception is received
Deception is conceived, sex, drugs, decadence, and greed
You’re my daughter, I raised you to be a Queen
It seems like it was just yesterday you were born
I take responsibility for putting you onto the truth
To the devils and the gods it doesn’t matter if you live in the rain
You can’t wash it out cause nothing gets rid of the stain

[Chorus]

Keep an eye out for your soul, girl
Don’t let the devils take it away
Hills are dark here, hills are cold girl
It’s soaked in blood, they’re draped in pain

Keep an eye out for your soul, girl
Don’t let the devils take it away
All that glitters is not gold, girl
Hollywood is a dangerous place to play

[Show 2: Slaine]

The hills have eyes in the land of lost angels in skies
The lies are disguised leaving truth tangled and tied
The fiends are awake, the lights are bright, the strangers are high
Dreams are at stake, there’s no brakes on a dangerous ride
First you love it and you want it, go faster cause it’s a rush
Hit the gas, try to chase cause you want it but you can’t touch
The more that you speed and try to catch the further you fall
You scream for help and it seems nobody heard you at all
Baby, I don’t want to see you repeat it and try to be me
Believing all the bullshit that they feed you on the TV
You’re my seed and I was tortured, I need you to believe me
I rose from the city, fell into the seedy side of greedy
It’s a letter from your daddy if I’m gone when you hear it
Just a memory, a voice on a record, even a spirit
Just remember it don’t matter if you live in the rain
And try to wash it out, nothing gets rid of the stain

[Chorus]

Keep an eye out for your soul, girl
Don’t let them devils take it away
All that glitters is not gold, girl
Hollywood is a dangerous place to play

Keep an out for your soul, girl
Cause ain’t nothing getting rid of the stain
The hills are dark, the hills are old, girl
They’re soaked in blood, they’re draped in pain

La Coka Nostra – Cousin of Death

La Coka Nostra - "Cousin of Death" Official Video

Glory fades and glory days ain’t always what they seem
Give all I got and make my salaat and dream my broken dreams
I crawl inside, ball up and hide, tuck my pain away
And hope to God I fall into a sleep where I can stay

We all got bills to settle, we all got a price to pay
And if I make it through the night I can fight another day
They say it’s better to burn out than it is to fade away
I just hope to God I can fall into a sleep where I can stay

[Show 1: Slaine]

It was a couple of years ago that I started becoming numb
No one could understand where all my words were coming from
Having visions of a nine-to-five, a wife, a blunt, a son
Of a life of hustle getting by with some of the running gun
Is it best to be a crumb? My ex says he’s a bum
Lashing out in violence whenever my destiny it hung
in the Balance, Greek, I’m drinking gallons, some think that my flows
Are more poetic than the poems of Edgar Allen Poe
But I know that I’m at a challenge though
I can hold an old Calico to my dome and let my talents go
Shit, I spent my Whole life around the violence so
I planted seeds of hate oh I let my habits grow
I slept with the homeless, I copped with the fiends
Lost the love inside my heart, I even Forgot what it means
Seen the ripest nights turn into the rottenest schemes
But through it all I have never forgotten my dreams

[Chorus]

When the gutters fill with blood that’s spilled from friends that pass away
And memories of eulogies while standing by their graves
Just trying to survive we wind up living lives like slaves
I hope to God I can fall into a sleep where I can stay

We all got beef to settle, we all got demons to slay
And if I pray all through the night I can fight another day
They say it’s better to burn out than it is to fade away
I just hope to God I can fall into a sleep where I can stay

[Show 2: Ill Bill]

Rest in peace to my homie Sob
I stand before an altar of open sepultures and coffins
I heard Javier got killed, it didn’t seem real
With an army of goons drinking straight vodka to deal
We live and die by the gun, wear our hearts on our sleeves
Even though our compassion’s destined to die on the streets
What’s left over a cold Hollow MURDER Machine
With an appetite for malevolence, perversion, and greed
When one of us dies we don’t really learn anything
Outside the funeral doing bumps, Burning trees
Plotting revenge, crying over fallen angels
Sometimes your friends die the most awkward strangers
I can’t lie, sometimes this life makes me a stranger to myself
But I’m pulling myself together, it’s bigger than just me
As I spit this bear witness to truth
My unborn seed listens while I spit in the booth

[Chorus]

Glory fades and glory days ain’t always what they seem
Give all I got and make my salaat and dream my broken dream
I crawl inside, ball up and hide, tuck my pain away
And hope to God I fall into a sleep where I can stay

We all got bills to settle, we all got a price to pay
And if I make it through the night I can fight another day
They say it’s better to burn out than it is to fade away
I just hope to God I can fall into a sleep where I can stay

A Brand You Can Trust – La Coka Nostra

La Coka NostraLa Coka Nostra we had already several times here in the crypt, u.a. With „I’m an american„, „That’s Coke“ and „Bang Bang„. Now the album is out at last: A Brand You Can Trust. And what can I say: Nomen est Omen!

Everlast once said to „La Coka Nostra“, this is the answer to all the „shallow airbrush Rap“. Rap muss hässlich sein und zur Sache kommen. Closing. from. LCN sei die längst fällige Rückkehr von Sex, drugs & Rap’n’Roll. And he's right, Boys with your pants at the knees: SO must sound Hip Hop! And Love Friends, La Coka Nostra is not funny. Because there, wo früher Ice-T fest im Sattel sass, da herrscht jetzt die Familie um Ol’Skool-Held Everlast. Oh yes, Ice-T knows the Generation Y ja auch höchstens von Law & Order, as funny cop (!) mit Pferdeschwänzchen

Und damit ihre euch gleich selber überzeugen könnt, There are two songs here, first „Get You By“ and then the album opener „Bloody Sunday“:

La Coka Nostra - "That's Coke"

Hereinafter the Lyrics the song:

(Everlast)

I, I’ve been rhyming since my daddy’s dick first got wet
Kicked a hole in the womb of my Mother then I jet
Back to the scene of the crime
A true mastermind
I’ll never do time

(Slaine)

Close, but I do watch my watch till the second hand stops
And the bars close down and the Records GET dropped
Piss drunk in the parking lot speaking dumb
Gun all sticky from the Puerto Rican rum

(Ill Bill)

I keep it real like the 80’s when we flooded the block
Stick up kids went from baseheads to suckin‘ the cock
The hottest bitch in my projects discovered the rock
A year later had the Monster climbing out of her twat

(Slaine)

This is a stick up
I told you you could Reach for the sky
Fuck a chip off the brick or the piece of the pie
The worst thing they did to the kid was leave him alive
Now I’m ruthless moving with a reason to die

(Everlast)

The trees got me so high I can’t sniff your next line
My culture’s refined
I’m heavy on the grind
I’m hard in the paint
My uzi weighs a kilo
I’ll smack you in the face and crack your head like Cee Lo

(Ill Bill)

It’s a fact homey eagles don’t roam in flocks
But the eagles that I got will put a hole in your top
So predictable I’m already knowin‘ your plot
It happens so fast you won’t even know that you’re shot

(Slaine)

Till the concrete is painted with pain
Cause you bein‘ dead is the only way they’ll ever say you were slain
Black scully, black bandana, and black coat
with the co-leader in the House of Pain (That’s Coke)

(Danny Boy)

You already know what it is
It’s the pimp, the sniff and the aw shit
That ain’t dandruff homeboy
Hell naw that ain’t dandruff

All in together now – That’s Coke (x5)

(Ill Bill)

That’s coke in freezer bags hidden in the ferarri
More raw than Big Daddy Kane spittin‘ with Marley
More white than them three bitches sniffin‘ with Charley
That’s coke like a boston george new year’s party

(Everlast)

The motherfuckin‘ svengali
Mob boss got body in the XL Denali
With the mossberg shotty
Got a full box of shells and a ransom note
That ain’t gun powder out on my dash (That’s Coke)

(Slaine)

I’m raw as sushi
Belushi’s spirit probably is with me
I’m Rick James bitch, ask Bobby and Whitney
In the hood where the maniacs will rob you to get me
Gettin‘ blown by Paris, Nicole, Lindsey, and Brittney
You shittin‘ me?

All in together now – That’s Coke (x12)

Everlast – love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford


Oh ja, they annoy me, the eternal Weltverbesser, to me only always say again, that the world is bad and they have a clear conscience, since they are the Enlightening, have recognized it. Das ganze gilt natürlich auch bei der Music und da mach ich persönlich es abhängig davon, who says it and how, especially. Take, for example times will.i.am: I can dissect the long hochlyrisch the world's problems, wirklich würde es mich nicht interessieren, selbst wenn er vermeintliche Lösungen für die Probleme der Welt anzubieten hätte

At Everlast dagegen erhebt das emotionale Johnny Cash-Moment die Einfachheit seiner grösstenteils lediglich anprangernden Zeilen und das offene Bekenntnis zum American White Trash, the pain in the words and the supremacy of his voice to more relevant.

I am still fascinated by the Concert last Sunday, the groovy bluesy folk rock hip hop. Incomparable! The whole album „love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford“ ist definitiv hörenswert und ich kann mirs nun nicht verkneifen, to post for that very the two latest video clips, first „Stone in My Hand“, with subsequent Lyrics to read:

Stone in My Hand "New Everlast video"

Ride with the devil, hide with the lord
I got no pistol, ain’t got no sword
I got no army, ain’t got no land,
Ain’t got nothing but the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
Ain’t got nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

You say you want a revolution, well get on board
We’ll start a new crusade; we’ll start a holy war
Don’t need no orders don’t need no plan
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I don’t need nothing but the stone that’s in my hand

You build your fighter jets you drop your bombs,
You kill our fathers you kill our moms
You kill our brother and our sisters, and our uncles and our aunts
Still I’m fighting with the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
Still I’m fighting with the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
All the love that’s in my heart and the stone that’s in my hand

Blood runs in the gutters, smoke fills the sky
Every son that suffers every Mother cries
So if you’ve had enough and you’re ready for your stand
I’ll be waiting with the stone that’s in my hand

Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
I’ll be waiting with the stone that’s in my hand
Stone in My Hand, Stone in My Hand
All the love that’s in my heart and the stone that’s in my hand

And second, the song „Letters Home from the Garden of Stone“, here below with text:

Letters Home from the Garden of Stone ... New Everlast video

Sittin‘ restless under the moonlight
I know I’m getting ready to kill
They say we’re going in with the day light
I don’t want to but I will

Cause I won’t know the man that kills me
And I don’t know thes men I kill
I thank God for my salvation
Wash away the blood I spill

I try not to think about my family
Cause it’s a little too much to take
Out here I got me and I got my buddy
We can’t afford even one mistake

I started writing on dirty cardboards…
It’s the only paper I could find
Tell everyone I got their letters,
Tell everyone I’m doing fine

Late at night when I can dream I…
I think about life back in the world

I miss you and dad, I miss sister Sarah
I miss my wife and my baby girl

Pray for me… pray for my soul Ma
Pray for me and all my sins

They say I got a job to do now
I’ll be back when it finally ends

Do you think I should be fighting?
But; are you proud are you ashamed?

Really I’m trying to do the right thing
I hope my Government can say the same thing

Cause I won’t know the man that kills me
And I don’t know these men I kill
We all wind upon the same side
Cause ain’t none of us doinGod’s Will
