Product Description:

Cypress Hill: B-Real, Sen Dog (rap vocals); Eric Bobo (drums); DJ Muggs (turntables).
Additional personnel: Jeremy Fleener, Andy Zambrano (guitar); Frank Mercurio (bass).
Recorded at The Fillmore, San Francisco, California on August 16, 2000.
Cypress Hill exploded onto the rap scene 10 years ago proclaiming their hatred of police officers ("Pigs"), and love of the sticky green stuff ("Stoned is the Way of the Walk"). The band hasn't deviated much from these topics in the intervening years. After all, they're precisely what make for great crowd chants and live albums.
Cypress Hill's last album, SKULL & BONES, showed the group's metal side, which has carried over to its live shows. That album's "Can't Get the Best of Me" and the infectious hit "(Rock) Superstar" work well, both live and in comparison with Cypress's previous two albums. Reinvented classics from that era, such as "Cock the Hammer" also benefit from their new live metal sound. "A to the K," new to the band's live set, is equally as thunderous. Never short on stage dialogue, B-Real makes the requisite request of the San Francisco crowd ("who's got some green northern Cali in their pocket tonight?") before launching into "I Wanna Get High." Being masters of the bong doesn't detract from Cypress Hill's legitimacy as the premier hip-hop/rock group, though, as LIVE AT THE FILLMORE clearly attests.
