Cypress Hill is one of the most successful and recognizable groups in west coast hip-hop. Their ability to transcend genres and appeal to a diverse range of ethnic groups established their status as legends, and their legacy will now carry on in an exclusive artist takeover mode on Pandora’s 90s hip-hop station.
The group will address their massive impact on the music industry in a candid chat with Pandora’s Director of Hip-Hop, Joshua “J1” Raiford. It promises to be an instructive and amusing chat about anything from the joint they smoked while deciding on the group’s name to being inspired to employ bilingual lyrics by the lowrider car circuit and much more.
The Pandora invasion arrives just in time for the legends to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their self-titled record. The ongoing celebration will continue with a series of live concerts this month, including tonight’s performance at LA’s Shrine Auditorium and a later date at Red Rocks.
Pandora Artist Takeover Modes are available on the platform’s most popular stations and include the biggest names in music from all genres. Artist Takeovers contain music hand-picked by the artist, featuring a mix of their own songs and personal favorites from other artists, as well as additional audio commentary detailing their choices and meaning.
