Dr. Greenthumb takes us through the process of working with Detroit producer Black Milk and how this new record speaks to Cypress Hill’s 1991 debut. He also talks about how their music takes on the current obstacles in the complete legalization of marijuana, how government divides the people, and how his time in Prophets of Rage came to influence his songwriting.
B-Real also discusses being able to gain fans from the metal scene from the beginning, how they looked to Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath in their imagery, and the songs they created with Pearl Jam and Sonic Youth.
