EDITORS’ NOTES

Cypress Hill’s debut album set the template from which countless other ‘90s alternative- and stoner-rap groups would draw. With DJ Muggs’ hazy production touches (the looping vocal tic in “Hand On the Pump” and the squealing guitar riff of “Pigs”), B-Real and Sen Dog’s bilingual tag-teaming (“Latin Lingo”), and paranoid anthems that walk the line between no-nonsense and silliness (“How I Could Just Kill a Man”), Cypress Hill is a visionary, tripped-out rap album that never takes itself too seriously.
