Cypress Hill

Cypress Hill has been exhaling sticky beats for more than 20 years now.

The first Latino hip-hop group to gain stardom, Cypress Hill brought a whiff of Cheech & Chong comedy to their red-eyed rapping, but were hardly playing around on songs like "Hand on the Pump" and "How I Could Just Kill a Man." Sen Dog and B Real's gritty rhymes could hold their own with South Central and East L.A.'s finest until everything went loco on 1993's Black Sunday and their white audience exploded. They paid back their new fans in kind by working more and more alt-rock into subsequent albums, exhaling another hit on 2000's "Rock Superstar." Meanwhile, DJ Muggs's blunted beats helped influence Dr. Dre and trip-hop, and are fundamental to the pungent bass brew cooked up by the likes of recent Cypress collaborator Rusko.
