Band: CYPRESS HILL (South Gate, California)
Who: Multi-albums-selling rappers
with a great appetite for weed.
Active since 1988 / 9 studio LPs (so far)
Album: CYPRESS HILL – self-titled debut LP
Released: 14 August 1991 – 30 years ago
AllMusic said: “They created a sonic blueprint that would become one
of the most widely copied in hip-hop. In keeping with their promarijuana
stance, Cypress Hill intentionally crafted their music to sound stoned, lots
of slow, lazy beats, fat bass, weird noises, and creepily distant-sounding
samples.” Full review: here. Score: 5/5.
Turn Up The Volume: As Bob Dylan once sang “I would not feel so all alone,
everybody must get stoned.” Cypress Hill‘s debut LP is the ideal soundtrack to
follow Dylan‘s invitation.
Singles/clips: The Phuncky Feel One / Hand On The Pump
