Cypress Hill

  • Cypress Hill is an American hip hop group from South Gate, California.
  • Cypress Hill was the first Latino group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums and over the course of its history has sold more than 18 million albums worldwide, including more than 11 million records in the U.S. alone.
  • Cypress Hill's first album called simply Cypress Hill, was released in August 1991. The lead single was "Phuncky Feel One," but it was the B-side "How I Could Just Kill A Man" which attracted more attention, receiving heavy airplay on urban and college radio.
  • For over two years, Cypress Hill had a running feud with West Coast rapper and former friend Ice Cube. The feud allegedly started when B-Real played a demo of the then unreleased album Temples of Boom for Ice Cube. According to B-Real, Ice Cube asked if he could use the song “Throw Your Set in the Air" for the soundtrack of his upcoming film Friday. B-Real refused. Ice Cube then recorded the song "Friday", which features a similar hook to “Throw Your Set in the Air". Cypress Hill viewed this as biting (stealing), and recorded the song “No Rest for the Wicked”, in which they attack Cube and accuse him of stealing their music.
  • Cypress Hill was banned from Saturday Night Live after Muggs smoked cannabis on-air and the band trashed their instruments while playing their second single "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That".
