House of Pain

House of Pain is an American hip hop group who released three albums in the 1990s before lead rapper Everlast left to pursue his solo career again. The group's name is a reference to the H.G. Wells novel The Island of Dr. Moreau, a reference carried further by the naming of their 2011 tour "He Who Breaks the Law". The group is best known for its 1992 hit single "Jump Around", which reached number 3 in the United States, number 6 in Ireland and number 8 in the United Kingdom. The group broke up in 1996 but reformed in 2010 as House of Pain, after the trio had been members of supergroup La Coka Nostra for several years. more »

If I was to sit down and actually write out a list 
Of the MCs that missed it would be the constitution 
They play their caps backwards still saying whack words 
No power to (durhust) just a few yes men 
Raising the question of who gave you a contract 
They should be fired you're officially retired 

I see you make a little cash and start showing your ass 
You get laced up with jewels your crews acting like fools 
Playing hard rock surrounded by body guards 
Hoping no one pulls your cord you got me laughing pretty hard 
Thinking you're the white hot man of the hour 
But you just can't figure how your flavor went sour 
Back in 89 PE fought the power and in 86 Big Daddy Kane was raw 

And I was right there on the first floor of the Palladium 
You never played a venue local college or a stadium 
A young boys (fiddin' pad) fad is now a grown mans profession 
To earn this is a blessing 
This skills have me guessing learn cause I'm testing 
Follow this down no question 

No doubt check it out 
You be either rhyming in code or on some gangster node 
You all clockwork apocalypse you about to implode 
Collapsing on yourself cause your whole foundation is 
Built on lies don't apologize 
Cause once they watch you rise they want to watch you fall 
And they'll all take a piece just like the Berlin wall 
And place it on their mantle like a souvenir 
And what they call a knick-knack is really your career 

You ain't promise nothing but a pocket full of stress 
Still there be people that would die for less 
You ain't promise nothing but a heart full of sorrow 
If they don't like the demo make a new one tomorrow 
You ain't promise nothing but a pocket full of stress 
Still there be people that would die for less 
You ain't promise nothing but a heart full of sorrow 
If they don't like the demo make a new one tomorrow 

When its time to rise Ill open the archives 
When you be in dreams you got 85s 
Chrome down with the leather package 
You got a home of your own 
you're holding acres 
I got it made 
Season tickets to the Knickers and the Lakers 
Playing both coasts closed and European festivals 
Crowd scream decibels x2 
In your ear you want to make rapping your career 

From Arkansas to Minnesota I sell out the quota 
I be the wet dream making cream for promoters 
We keep the shit right we don't be starting no fights 
And he won't hold out my dough cause I'm a put out his lights 
And once the crew hits the stage the crowd gets involved 
We show love they show it back all problems solved 
You can boom shalock and jump to the sounds I pump 
But I ain't quitting 'til I'm shitting on Donald Trump 

So take heed to the verses and styles and versions 
When you socialize with other MCs 
And boast your rhymes to company enemies 
And in any cases that feel is what you want 
You want to make money money and take every honey 
Rap charges ain't funny but it boost your career 
Your penile style is now hanging from a tier 
Now you want to know fear to impress your peers 
Now your ass outta here the rap game goes on
