West Coast hip-hop legends, Cypress Hill have produced multiple classic hits throughout their rap career. When mentioned if they considered themselves legends B-Real said, “If people wanna tag us with labels and stuff then that’s cool, you know whatever it is we’ve dealt with it.” “Legend is a pretty awesome label so we wouldn’t run from that.”

B-Real also went on to talk about Kendrick Lamar and his success in Hip Hop now.
“He helped bring the coast back with a few others, but he really did a few different things,” he adds. “He showed two sides of himself musically – when he wants to do some polished pop type shit he can do it and when he wants to get down and do that gritty, street people shit he can do that too.”

B-Real then explains how he has certain characteristics as Tupac. “He can be in the pop world and he can be right here on the street level.”
