Description

Los Angeles based Latino Hip Hop group Cypress Hill play The Wiltern for their annual Halloween show.

Cypress Hill was the first Latino Hip Hop group to have multi-platinum albums and over the course of its history, Cypress Hill has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide, more than 11 million records in the U.S. alone.

Their self titled debut was released in August 1991 and the first single was “Phuncky Feel One,” but it was the B-side “How I Could Just Kill A Man” that attracted more airplay on urban radio and college radio. Based on the success of the single and other tracks such as bilingual track “Latin Lingo” and “Tres Equis”, the album sold two million copies in the US alone. Black Sunday, the group’s second album, debuted at number one on The Billboard 200 in 1993, recording the highest Soundscan for a rap group up until that time. Also with their debut still on the charts they became the first rap artists to have 2 albums in the top 10 of The Billboard 200 at the same time. With “Insane in the Brain” becoming a crossover hit, the album went triple platinum in the U.S. and sold about 3.25 million copies. Their third album Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom was released in 1995 selling 1.5 million copies and reaching number 3 on the Billboard 200 on the strength of the hit single “Throw Your Set in the Air”. 

After a brief break, in 2000 the group released the double-disc set Skull & Bones which featured one disc of hip-hop and one disc of their more rock-inspired material. Skull & Bones hit the Top 10 on The Billboard 200 and included both a rock and a rap version of the single “Superstar.”  In 2001 the group released Stoned Raiders, again incorporating rock music, and in 2004 the band released _Till Death Do Us Part _which mixes several styles of Jamaican music and hit Top 40 on The Billboard 200.

Cypress Hill is currently recording a new studio album that will be release in the spring of 2009.
