It’s been four years since Cypress Hill’s last album and now their fans can go “insane in the brain” for news that a brand new album has officially been announced. This is Cypress Hill’s first album since 2010’s Rise Up and the upcoming (so-far-untitled) album is due in the spring of 2015.
The guys at Cypress Hill have been rapping since 1988 and released their first (self-titled) album in 1991. Made up of four rappers Sen Dog, B-Real, DJ Muggs, and Eric Bobo, this rap group has toured national festivals, released over a dozen albums, produced their own albums, and have both collaborated with other top artists and have also done their own solo projects for over 20 years.
A few of their songs and albums made it to Billboard’s Top 100, and they were the first rap group to have two albums be on the chart at the same time, with their first full-length debut album, Black Sunday, debuting at number one in 1993.
Recently, Cypress Hill performed at the 2014 Made In America Festival in Los Angeles, CA. Cypress Hill is known as the “throwback” act in festivals like these with headliners Kanye West and Imagine Dragons, but to real fans, they are so much more. For fans of the rap group over the last 20 years, this new album is an opportunity for older fans to bridge generational gaps with their children and connect with them through music.
Cypress Hill will also be preforming a few shows in Australia in December of this year where they will hit major cities like Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, and even Auckland, New Zealand. You can check out their official website to purchase tickets and check out what the guys at Hill have been up to these last 23 years.
