Hip hop legends are celebrating 30 year of Cypress Hill with their new album “Elephants On Acid”. This album is the group’s first studio album after eight years, marking the biggest gap between albums Cypress Hill has made. It was announced 3 years ago and it’s no wonder why it met such a big interest.
While the rest of the world is doing trap, Cypresses are staying true to their roots. Their ninth studio album keeps the old sound fans fell in love with more than 20 years ago. “Elephants On Acid” includes 21 fresh tracks fully produced by DJ Muggs, compared to the previous studio release “Rise Up” where multiple people were included in the production. Muggs tweeted:

Cypresses made a lot of old school rap lovers really happy with their new release. Many of the tracks sound quite familiar, having that classic 90’s gangsta rap vibe. When you hear it, you just know it’s Cypress Hill and no other.
