Everlast has returned to his hip-hop roots, teaming up with Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm) and Divine Styler (Rhyme Syndicate) to form the new art collective WARPORN INDUSTRIES. The group has dropped their debut mixtape "Warporn" online for free via DatPiff, with features from B-Real, Big Daddy Kane, Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks), Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples), and Termanology.
"The only way to make pure hip-hop is to sit in the room with the right creative forces and just allow things to unfold. Hence fire the beats up & let the MCs do what they do. The creation becomes a nod to the past as well as being relevant in today's world," said Divine Styler about the project.
"Very inspired to be in the studio & create music with these two gentlemen. Warporn is a classic collision of art, music, & raw lyricism," added Sick Jacken.
"Warporn Industries is more of an art project to me than just another album, and being able to work with my two close friends who are both criminally underrated is a bonus," commented Everlast.
