While I was doing some research on the Johnny Cash POV documentary that was on PBS this week, I stumbled upon this video of Everlast doing a cover of the Cash classic “Folsom Prison Blues.” It’s pretty true to the original version really only adding the beat and scream from “Insane in the Membrane.”
I’m not sure what to make of the use of Johnny Cash as sort of a duet a la “Unforgettable” (as one of the people comments on this video). Apparently Everlast has a new album coming out September 23rd called Love, War, and the Ghost of Whitey Ford and this will be on it. This will be his 5th solo album and will come out on his own Martyr, Inc. label.
