Edgar Wright was, by his own account, "21 years old, living in North London, broke and on the dole – that's British for 'welfare'" in 1995 when he was struck by what he can only compare to a near-religious vision. The filmmaker was in the process of editing his first movie, a low-budget Spaghetti western homage, but the future director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz had nothing lined up and no sense of what he really wanted to do with his life. And then he put on "Bellbottoms," the first »
I’ve been saying this for over 20 years but I still think my favorite rap album of all-time is Same as it Ever Was by House of Pain. It’s almost as if after the first album Everlast said, “you know what? Jump Around was cute but it’s time to sound about as hard as any rapper has ever sounded.” Sure the album had their hit which was “On Point” but even that song was “weak” compared to the rest of the tracks. I personally think there are two songs that define that album. The first wasn’t as commercial a hit

After Fallon rocked out to House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” Shaq moved the microphone off the stage, declaring, “I’m not gonna need this.”
He then broke into his rendition of Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative.” He first brought a female audience member onto the stage, dancing up on her as Fallon laughed in the background.
Shaq was then joined by singer Pitbull and together they swiveled their hips and jammed out to the ‘80s classic.
“That’s not fair!” Fallon shouted. “Pitbull in the house.”

Jimmy Fallon is known for having his own mini versions of popular TV show segments on The Tonight Show. Last night was one of his better skits because none other than Shaquille O’Neal was involved. The hall of fame big man stopped by to participate in a Lip Sync Battle and audiences were highly entertained. Fallon kicked things off by doing House of Pain’s “Jump Around” but Shaq held his own by performing Bobby Brown’s “My prerogative.” Shaq said that he was “bringing 1988 back” and things moved up a notch when Pitbull appeared out of nowhere to guest star

Who's ready for a battle between a late-night great and a basketball legend? As The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon began a special week of shows live from the Universal Orlando Resort, guest Shaquille O'Neal decided to take part in one of the show's favorite segments. It's time for Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon. "Since we both have Irish last names, my first song is a classic by House of Pain," the late-night host shared as he helped kick things off. "It's called 'Jump Around.'" Sure, that's great and all but Shaq wants to take us back to 1988 with "My Prerogative" by Bobby Brown. As the former Los Angeles Lakers player showed off »
What an epic Lip Sync Battle!
Shaquille O’Neal helped kick off Jimmy Fallon‘s weeklong taping of The Tonight Show in Orlando, Florida on Monday by going head-to-head with the late night host in the show’s wildly popular pretend-singing contest.
To start off the showdown, Fallon, 42, hyped up the crowd with House of Pain’s 1992 smash “Jump Around.” Meanwhile, the retired Hall of Fame basketball player, 45, channeled Bobby Brown for a rendition of the New Edition band member’s 1988 hit “My Prerogative,” with a little help from Pitbull, who was the night’s musical act.

The other day I went to a high school basketball game here on Long Island. I distinctly remember not the quality of the game (which was horrible), but I was listening very closely to the warm up music they were playing pregame and at halftime. It was rap. And it wasn’t 90s rap that got you pumped up like anything from House of Pain, Wutang Clan or a zillion others. It was slow moving, mostly vocal and I just couldn’t even fathom how an athlete could get jacked up listening to this stuff. I have no problem with rap and
