Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning artist EVERLAST has released the video for his laid-back new single “Don’t Complain” online at https://youtu.be/1IjvLlb-q0Y. The rapper and singer-songwriter brings his trademark raspy flow over a twangy instrumental “about some Hollywood cats I find humorously douchey,” notes EVERLAST. Driven by acoustic picking guitar sounds over a laid-back beat, the vibey production of “Don’t Complain” suits his signature flow and his razor-sharp lyrical prowess.
The song is taken from Everlast’s new album WHITEY FORD’S HOUSE OF PAIN, which was just released via his own Martyr-Inc label. His seventh solo studio effort overall and first studio album of all-new material since 2011’s Songs of the Ungrateful Living (2013’s The Life Acoustic was re-recorded solo guitar versions of previously released songs). The 12-song collection offers an eclectic stylistic sampling from throughout EVERLAST’s nearly-three-decade-long journey. WHITEY FORD’S HOUSE OF PAIN depicts Everlast as a heartland working class hero.
Everlast will kick-off his North American Tour tonight in Las Vegas with a headline show at Brooklyn Bowl and continue touring in support of the album through 2019.

You can call him Everlast, Whitey Ford or even Erik Francis Schrody, but by any name, this singer-songwriter-rap legend’s remarkable music career has seen him reinvent himself several times over. From his first solo album, Forever Everlasting, under the auspices of Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate when he was barely out of his teens, to the “Jump Around” success with House of Pain, the multi-platinum Whitey Ford Sings the Blues (and its genre-bending hit single, “What It’s Like”) and his Grammy-winning contribution to Carlos Santana’s Supernatural album (“Put Your Lights On”), EVERLAST has defied the naysayers. Along the way, he has forged a groundbreaking merger of hip-hop, rock, folk, funk and R&B, influencing everyone from Kid Rock and Colt Ford to acolytes like Yelawolf, JellyRoll and Lil Wyte, even if he’s too modest to say it himself.
