"We are delighted to be working with Cypress Hill," said Maximilian Kolb, director, A&R recorded music BMG Germany. "Not only did they arguably kickstart the whole Latino hip-hop movement, interestingly they created music which has as much resonance here in Germany as it has in the US, influencing a new generation of artists. Eight years since their last studio album, we are very excited at the potential for this new record."
Tom 'Grover' Biery, executive vp, recorded music BMG US, added: "Few hip-hop artists are as remarkable as Cypress Hill. The album “ Elephants On Acid “is yet another example of their enormous creativity and why they remain so vital today."
