hop

313 – House Of Pain – Jump Around (1992)
Written by Everlast
Produced by DJ Muggs
Label – XL

Go to any sporting event and there’s a likelihood you’ll be hearing this. ‘Jump Around’ was shaped by the production skills of DJ Muggs who had been responsible for masterminding Cypress Hill’s debut album. From the annoyingly contagious siren-like screech that weaves in and out of the song, to the excellent combination of old school and modern hip hop music that backs up Everlast’s assured vocal delivery, it’s a truly unexpected classic.
