Cypress Hill, whose pioneering Latino hip-hop/rock fusion continues to cast its radical shadow over the rap/pop landscape, celebrated the group's extraordinary longevity with the long-awaited Greatest Hits ‘From The Bong’, just released.
The first-ever English language "best of" collection Cypress Hill, Greatest Hits From The Bong covers 13 years of recorded Cypress Hill history, beginning with 1992's underground hits "How I Could Just Kill A Man," "Hand On The Pump," and "Latin Lingo," cresting with 1993's massive crossover breakthrough smash "Insane In The Brain," rolling through the mid-to-late 1990's with the signature anthems "Throw Your Set In The Air," "Dr. Greenthumb," and "I Ain''t Going Out Like That," banging the new millennium with 2000's "(Rock) Superstar" and 2004's "Latin Thugs" (featuring Puerto Rican Reggaeton rapper Tego Calderón) and laying the groundwork for a green Cypress Hill future with two brand-new cuts: "The Only Way" and "EZ Come EZ Go." Rounding out the set is a special bonus Reggaeton Mix of "Latin Thugs" (featuring Tego Calderón), remixed and produced by DJ Kazzanova.
Since the group's formation in 1988, the pioneering rap-rock quartet Cypress Hill -- founders B-Real (Louis Freese), DJ Muggs (Lawrence Muggerud) and Sen Dog (Senen Reyes), along with newest member Eric Bobo -- have come a long way from the streets of South Central L.A.
Over the course of its 17-year history, Cypress Hill has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide, including more than 11 million records in the U.S. alone.
The group has garnered 15 multi-platinum, platinum and gold certifications from the RIAA; headlined Lollapalooza, Woodstock and the group's own Smokin'' Grooves tour; appeared on "Saturday Night Live," among other shows, all the while breaking down the musical and cultural barriers between hip-hop, alternative, metal, rock, reggae, ska and Latin music.
To this day, many of Cypress Hill's hits remain on active rotation on the nation's foremost hip-hop, rock and alternative play lists while the sounds of Cypress Hill continue to rock the world's hottest underground parties.
