Cypress Hill made history Thursday (April 18) 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, as Xzibit and comedian George Lopez took the podium to share a few words about the legendary crew.
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. Black Sunday then notched the group their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. 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. They also accumulated three Grammy nominations back in the '90s for "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."
