Cypress Hill made history Thursday (April 18th) when the Latino rap group was honored with their very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The California natives were all together to soak in the moment, with Xzibit and George Lopez in attendance to present the piece.
Members B-Real, DJ Muggs and Sen Dog joined forces more than 30 years ago, which led to their critically acclaimed debut album named after the weed-loving group in 1991. Following Bobo’s addition in 1994, Cypress Hill would go on to be one of the forefathers of West Coast rap and release a total of nine LPs, including 2018’s Elephants on Acid. The crew has been nominated for Grammys for hits such as “Insane in the Brain,” “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That” and “Throw Your Set in the Air.”
“I was blown away,” Sen Dog admitted. “It was something we never expected.” For B-Real, to see these stars while growing up on the streets of California, it’s a blessing to be added to that select group. “We used to walk these streets as young men looking at all these stars coming up as we were in the hip-hop culture,” he says. “Seeing this here, it is an honor.”
