As the title says..I believe it is the rotar cuff that it hurts. I also do laterial raises, shoulder press and the arnold press which does not hurt my rotar cuff..
What other exercise is good for building BIG shoulder muscles.
Suggest the next bext shoulder exercise..

If they hurt your shoulder stop doing them, they are one of the worst exercises you can do for your shoulder.
The test physios use to determine if you have impingement in your shoulder i the exct action used in an upright row. Place safety before any minute gains you might and substitute it with something else like the obvious presses and lateral raises imo

taken from this site:
The Upright Row is one of the most harmful exercises you can expose your shoulders to. The problem with the exercise lies in the position your arms must be in in order to perform the movement. This position is called "internal rotation."
To demonstrate internal rotation, hold your arms straight out to the sides with your palms down. Now rotate your hands forward as if you were pouring out a glass of water in each. To do the upright row, the arms are bent at the elbow then internally rotated.
Internal rotation itself is not necessarily bad for your shoulders. The problem comes when you raise the arms up and add resistance in that position. Every time you raise the weight, a small tendon in your shoulder gets pinched (known as impingement) by the bones in the shoulder.
This may not hurt immediately; it may not even hurt for a long, long time. The problem is the tendon will gradually become worn down and damaged. You may not even know you have a problem until one day the tendon snaps!
