Cypress Hill touched down in London to start a European tour by performing at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town last Tuesday night (5th June 2012).
Members of the Killerhiphop team were lucky enough to be in the venue to watch the Californian group made up of B Real, Sen Dog, DJ Juilio G and Eric Bobo perform.
DJ Semtex was on hand to warm up the crowd by performing a strong selection of hip hop hits from Jay-Z, DMX, Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Odd Future plus more.
The packed out venue saw Cypress Hill perform a strong 1hr40min set which included a number of their classics, “Insane In The Brain”, “How I Could Just Kill A Man”, “Tequila Sunrise” and “Dr Greenthumb” to name a few. At one point the stage lighting turned green and B Real lit up a joint on stage to perform “Roll It Up, Light It Up, Smoke it Up” from the Friday soundtrack.
Cypress Hill team up with UK Dubstep artist Rusko for a new collaboration EP “Cypress X Rusko“.
The EP contains five tracks, including their recent single “Can’t Keep Me Down,” featuring Damian Marley.
Download the EP from iTunes.
