Everlast On The Hidden Backstory Of House Of Pain’s Mega-Hit ‘Jump Around’ | People’s Party Clip.
In this clip from People’s Party, host Talib Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh talk with House of Pain frontman Everlast about his mega-hit “Jump Around.” Everlast shares the backstory of the song — including the fact that Ice Cube passed on the beat. He also addresses the source of what just might be the world’s most controversial sample. When Kweli remarks on the fact that the track launched around the same time as Kriss Kross’s “Jump,” Everlast tells the story of rushing their song onto the radio after learning that Joe Nicolo, co-founder of Ruffhouse Records, had heard the track and created a similar beat and theme for Kriss Kross. For the deep hip-hop heads, Everlast’s story of having Pete Rock on the track’s remix is a must-see, as is the story of Pete’s only time performing with House of Pain live.
