Everlast demands Trump stop using ‘Jump Around’ at rallies

No more Trumping around for The Donald.

Rapper Everlast, the onetime frontman of hip-hop group House of Pain, has demanded that rambunctious Republican front-runner Donald Trump cease and desist using his seminal 1992 jam, “Jump Around,” at campaign rallies.

“Hey @realDonaldTrump stop using my song jump around at your rallies you piece of s–t. Cease and desist is coming you scumbag,” the rapper, whose real name is Erik Francis Schrody, tweeted Monday night.

Rapper Everlast doesn’t want Donald Trump jumping around at his rallies anymore.

“Stop playing my song you ignorant racist piece of s–t lawyers are already on it. I don’t want your money no amount you offer will get the license. I would love to meet you and smack that comb over right off your scalp you scumbag!!!” he added on Instagram.

The bigmouth billionaire has reportedly played “Jump Around” at rallies in Wisconsin, where he trailed competitor Ted Cruz ahead of Tuesday’s GOP primary.

Everlast later extended his tirade into an interview with Billboard, slamming the businessman for allegedly failing to license his song before playing it during televised events.

“The reason he doesn’t ask anybody — a lot of people have asked him to cease and desist — (is) because every f–king person would say, ‘No, f–k you,’ except for whatever right-wing country artist wants to give him the song,” he said.

It’s unclear whether Trump’s campaign obtained a license to play the song, which has long been a favorite in movies, clubs and sporting events. A spokeswoman has yet to return the Daily News’ request for comment.

The 46-year-old rapper joins a growing league of musicians — including Adele, R.E.M., Neil Young and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler — blasting the hate-mongering mogul for associating his campaign with their music.

The presidential candidate’s adversaries in the rap community also include T.I., who recently told Trump supporters not to buy his music, Chris Brown, who suggested black protesters travel in large groups to avoid being thrown around at Trump rallies, and Mac Miller, who fueled a years-long feud with the reality star after his 2011 hit song, “Donald Trump,” went platinum.

Public Enemy frontman Chuck D, a longtime Trump dissenter, also brandished a middle finger and yelled, “Black lives matter! F–k Donald Trump” onstage at South by Southwest last month.
