Cypress Hill performing “Hits From the Bong” live at The Smokeout 2012 Warning: contains profanity, tobacco paraphernalia, and Cypress Hill acting like Cypress Hill
- What Cypress Hill is named for: a street
- What Cypress Hill is made up of: four hyper-talented hip-hop artists
- They are: MCs B-Real and Sen Dog, percussionist Eric Bobo, and mixmaster (and GZA collaborator) DJ Muggs
- Ground broken by the Hill: they were the first hip-hop group of Cuban-American and Latino heritage whose sound achieved mainstream, multiplatinum success
- That sound: funky drum-and-bass loops, eerie samples that screech like a dolphin slamming on the brakes, and infectiously congested vocals
- What AllMusic said about their 1991 self-titled debut: “…despite its legions of imitators, Cypress Hill still sounds fresh and original today, simply because few hip-hop artists can put its sound across with such force of personality or imagination”
- Song you’ll never get out of your head: “Insane in the Brain,” made instantly recognizable by B-Real’s high-pitched nasal voice
- Other essential hits: “How I Could Just Kill a Man,” “Hand on the Pump,” and the bilingual “Latin Lingo”
- Their latest: 2012’s Cypress x Rusko, a collaborative EP which adds dubstep into their dank musical formula
