Album Review

On Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom, Cypress Hill sounded a little tired, clinging to their slow, druggy beat a bit too much. The Unreleased & Revamped EP was released a few months after the album, which signals that the EP is an attempt to salvage their reputation. That suspicion is confirmed by the list of remixers and collaborators. None of the guest musicians — from the Fugees and A Tribe Called Quest to Redman, MC Eiht, and Erick Sermon — are traditional West Coast rappers.

DJ Muggs crafted the sound, and B Real, with...
