Since playing their sold-out “Haunted Hill” show at Terminal 5 in New York last October, Cypress Hill have spent more time in the studio and less time on the road. With the exception of a month long run of dates on Snoop Dogg’s Mount Kushmore Wellness Retreat tour this April and a couple of festival performances, the group has been writing and working on new music and recently released “Reefer Man,” the lead single off the Grow House Movie Soundtrack. The video for the track premiered at Mass Appeal and received pick up from a ton of outlets including The Boom Box, Rap Radar, Ambrosia For Heads and Vibe, who declared “Cypress Hill is back.” With no signs of slowing down in 2017, the band have a handful of songs already done and have plans to release new music later this fall with a full length album to come in early 2018.
Cypress Hill’s self-titled debut album came out in 1991 and sold over 2 million copies. They followed that with the release of Black Sunday, which debuted #1 on Billboard 200 in 1993 and recorded the highest Soundscan for a rap group up until that time. With their hit “Insane in the Brain” crossing-over to mainstream, the album (Black Sunday) went triple platinum in the US and sold 3.5 million copies. As a result, Cypress Hill became the first rap group to have 2 albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time. They went on to release six more albums and sold over 18 million copies worldwide, becoming the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success.
