About this deal

I Wanna Get High was inspired by Rita Marley’s song One Draw and the whole Marley movement was a big influence on us in terms of us pushing for cannabis legalisation and being consumers of it.

What’s interesting is that Back In Black – which was recorded simultaneously alongside Elephants On Acid – so carefully avoids retreading the well-stomped prints of their last outing.Black Sunday retains all the distinctive qualities of its predecessor, but this time the atmosphere is mellower, and the hooks are catchier. It would be unfair to say that Cypress Hill lost their way in the mid 2000s, but their seventh album didn’t quite spark the weed-addled imagination in the same way that their earlier classics had. Retrospectively, STEREOGUMraved, “ The Cypress Hill of Black Sunday were better than anyone else, possibly in rap history, at the straight-up rapped hook, the phrases repeated at just the right cadence and tenor to get them stuck permanently in your brain. On the rap-only first disc, Eminem pops up on (Rap) Superstar and the copycat-dissing Stank Ass Hoe is as funky and obnoxious as it sounds.

Reuniting with their AWOL producer DJ Muggs, they delivered their best record since 1995’s Temples Of Boom. Cypress Hill is ranked number 1,148 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 1,306. So while you definitely don’t smoke something illegal, here are the Hill’s studio records, rated from slightly baked to higher than the sun.I don’t think they believed that we had the audacity to actually smoke cannabis on stage in front of their faces, but they were wrong. Again, the more straightforward hip-hop tracks – with the exception of the twitchy funk of Light It Up– are overshadowed by the rowdy curveballs. Credit to Eric Bobo, who’d come from the Beastie Boys on tour with us as live percussionist – fortunately, it worked. On July 20, 2023, an expanded edition of the album was released to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the album, featuring five additional songs. Following up the universally acclaimed III: Temples Of Boom was never going to be easy, but Cypress Hill came pretty close to pulling off a second successive masterpiece.

As ever, the THC content is off the charts: everything from woozy intro Spark Another Owl to the paranoid swirl of Red Light Visions reeks of the stuff, but these stoners have sharp teeth, too. Meanwhile, guest cameos from Wu-Tang alumni RZA and U-God kept the straight-ahead hip-hop crowd happy. That started as a joke between us and the LSO on Twitter, but we would love to do something, preferably a classical performance of Black Sunday.Cypress Hill will be reissuing their second studio album on vinyl for the 30th Anniversary of the release with the original tracklist from 1993 plus three bonus tracks that were previously on 12-inch singles, including the B-Side fan favourite “Scooby Doo. Bolstered by the bonus material and the legendary 14-track rollercoaster, the 30 Th Anniversary Edition invites complete immersion in the inimitable sonic framework of the LP and the culture of Black Sunday. I don’t think he took it as seriously as us in terms of what this shit can turn into, but prior to that we’d been friends and we had a lot of mutual friends who wanted us to mend the relationship. Track 2 contains elements from "The Wizard" (Iommi/Butler/Ward/Osbourne) published by Essex Music International, Inc.
