Editors’ Notes

After establishing itself with a brilliant debut, Cypress Hill broke through to the masses with its sophomore album. Black Sunday retains all the distinctive qualities of its predecessor, but this time the atmosphere is mellower, and the hooks are catchier. The tone is set by “I Wanna Get High,” in which DJ Muggs blends samples from three different songs and creates a sound that evokes billows of smoke. The stoned atmosphere continues with “Legalize It” and “Hits from the Bong” (which makes great use of Dusty Springfield’s “Son Of A Preacher Man”), but Black Sunday still has plenty of Los Angeles menace. “C**k the Hammer,” “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That” and “Lick a Shot” are psychotic party anthems, while the sauntering, simmering grooves of “Lil’ P**os” and “What Go Around Come Around, Kid” strike a low-key pose of gangsta cool. Even when the craziness reaches a fever pitch, the songs are always grounded in Muggs’ rock-solid rhythms. The group’s chemistry peaks on “When the Sh-- Goes Down” and “Insane In the Brain,” two hit anthems that exemplify the trio’s devastating potency.

This Album defined a week of my life...

...I was smokin hella chronic that week

Great Purchase

This is without a doubt the dopest cd to drop from the cypress hill crew. B-Real and Sen Dog spit some of the hottest verses never letting a bar go to waste. Using ill bass lines, old school drum grooves, and melodic instruments, the smooth beats by Muggs and Bobo send you back to the 90's leaving your head bobbing for days. This is a cd to listen to from beginning to end with your boys around a cozy bong. If you dig the dope, rugged beats of the 90's, then step into the realm known as Black Sunday.


This is one of the defining albums of the early 90's. Any of you young cats out there wanting to know what mom and dad used to get down to back in the you go....Funny, articulate, and right to the point of what the early 90's were all about, at least for me..Cypress Hill, Snoop, Dr. Dre this is where is all started.

Cypress Hill were notable for being the first Latino hip-hop superstars, but they became notorious for their endorsement of marijuana, which actually isn't a trivial thing. Not only did the group campaign for its legalization, but their slow, rolling bass-and-drum loops pioneered a new, stoned funk that became extraordinary influential in '90s hip-hop -- it could be heard in everything from Dr. Dre's G-funk to the chilly layers of English trip-hop. DJ Muggs crafted the sound, and B Real, with his...
