Multi-platinum selling Hip Hop luminaries Cypress Hill today announces the release of their first new music since their critically acclaimed 9th studio album ‘Elephants On Acid’ in 2018. ‘Champion Sound’, produced and mixed by Detroit's Black Milk, continues to elevate the Grammy-nominated group’s distinctly powerful dual-vocal dynamic to new heights and sees them enter an incredible fourth decade of releases, clearly highlighting the reason they’re hailed as one of the greatest Hip Hop acts of all time.
Cypress Hill have also announced they'll be celebrating 4/20 this year with the world's largest smoke session and performance streaming live from The Roxy on the Sunset Strip. Presented by NoCap, the band will be performing their greatest hits with some special surprises.
On ‘Champion Sound' B-Real commented “We’re really excited to give our fans a taste of what we’ve been working on since Elephants on Acid. We can’t wait for you all to hear what’s up next”.
If you happen to be a gamer, ‘Champion Sound' might sound familiar as it’s featured on the soundtrack of the recently released R.B.I. Baseball 21, the eighth instalment of the R.B.I. franchise developed by Major League Baseball.
The release of 'Champion Sound' also comes on the heels of the multi-platinum group’s recent announcement of a partnership with Z2 Comics for their very own original graphic novel, Cypress Hill: Tres Equis - info below!

Three decades ago, B-Real, Sen Dog, and DJ Muggs sparked a trip that left popular culture stoned, stunned, and staggering in anticipation for more. Naming themselves after a local street in Los Angeles, Cypress Hill burst on the scene in 1991 with the release of their self-titled debut album. The singles “How I Could Just Kill a Man” and “The Phuncky Feel One” became underground hits, and the group’s public pro-marijuana stance earned them many fans among the alternative rock community. Cypress Hill followed their debut with Black Sunday in the summer of 1993, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and went triple platinum in the U.S. As a result, Cypress Hill became the first rap group to have two albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time.
Cypress Hill went on to release seven more hugely successful records and have sold over 20 million copies worldwide, becoming the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success. The band has also been immortalized by a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (2020), been animated for an episode of The Simpsons and earned a spot on VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop” with smash single “Insane in the Brain.” Additionally, Cypress Hill has been sampled by everyone from JAY-Z and The Black Eyed Peas, to A$AP Rocky and Vic Mensa with Chance the Rapper.
