Born Erik Schrody in 1970 in Hempstead, NY; son of a construction worker father and mother Rita Mulligan, a restaurant franchise manager; one sister, born c. 1973. Addresses: Home–Los Angeles, CA; Record company–Tommy Boy Music, 902 Broadway, 13th Flr., New York City, NY 10010 Phone: (212)388-8300.

Hip-hop singer Everlast, born Erik Schrody, makes a forceful case for claiming that despite being white and growing up in the suburbs, his gravitation toward the rap and hip-hop culture was as American as apple pie.

“If you go by that little inscription on the Statue of Liberty, the purest idea of America is complete cultural chaos,” he told Spin magazine’s Charles Aaron.

“Why don’t we have a national culture? Because we have all cultures. America has its fingertips into everything, and so does hip-hop, that’s why it makes so much sense.”

Taking this notion to heart, the tattooed singer/rapper who converted from Catholicism to the Muslim faith and built an enormous collection of baseball cards over the years released his first album, the unimpressive Forever Everlasting, in 1990.

That same year, he put his solo aspirations aside to form the Gaelic rap/hip-hop trio House of Pain with Danny Boy, born Daniel O’Connor, and DJ Lethal, born Leor DiMant, who later joined the rap/metal band Limp Bizkit.

Why did Rapper Everlast leave House of Pain?

House of Pain was an American hip-hop trio that released three albums in the 1990s before lead rapper Everlast left to pursue a solo career. The group broke up in 1996 but returned in 2010 after the trio had been members of supergroup La Coka Nostra for several years.

While recording Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, however, Rapper Everlast suffered a massive cardiac arrest stemming from a congenital defect, resulting in heart bypass surgery and an artificial valve implant. Following his recovery, he completed the album, which appeared in the fall of 1998 to strong commercial notices.
