Legends never call themselves legends. They put their heads down and do one simple thing: work. Cypress Hill is easily one of the most iconic duos we’ve been blessed with in the world of hip hop and today they sit casually amongst a black couch to let some of their thoughts loose.
“I think that’s for everyone else to decide. [Whether we are legends.] We consider ourselves artists.”
As important as it is to let the younger generations innovate and explore new sounds, it’s as vital to keep our eyes and ears on the history of where this art form came from. Both sides can teach and learn a lot from the other, and without that synergy we don’t move forward. Cypress Hill’s effort in keeping an eye on the youngins’ but always allowing them to do their own thing is the right perspective to have.
"Kendrick helped bring the coast back, he definitely has the side that Pac had to him, that one dynamic that translated to both worlds, where he could be in the pop world and right here on the street level. He's a very special emcee.”
As always, they leave you with one simple piece of advice: “if you could see yourself doin’ it, and believe you can do it, then somebody’s gotta do it, it’s gotta be you. Keep the head up and stay positive minded.”
