Cypress Hill [Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1991]
"How I Could Just Kill a Man" is about what it says it's about, anger rather than advocacy, but that doesn't mean I buy their this-is-reality we-don't-glorify-it any more than anybody else's--putting a hole in someone's head because he's trying to steal your car is foul, not to mention bad for your health, and I wish they'd say so. Still, shit happens, and from their Beasties-Spanglish accents to their guitar-hip samples, it sounds different when these guys make music out of it--funny, for one thing, which in hard guys amounts to a new vision. They like hemp, hate cops ("pigs"), use the word "fag"in vain, and celebrate their neighborhood rather than their dicks. I like their music--plenty. A-

Just how did it happen, do you think, that the inventors of rap-rock got lost in the shuffle? ("[Rock] Superstar," "We Live This S***"). **
