Cy­press Hill

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - MUSIC -

It’s been 25 years since Los An­ge­les-based Cy­press Hill stomped onto the hip-hop scene with its epony­mous de­but al­bum, a col­lec­tion of blunt Latin-rap dis­patches from a na­tion di­vided by racism and gun vi­o­lence fil­tered through a haze of dope smoke and the clown­ish nasal drone of B-Real. Songs such as “How I Could Just Kill a Man,” “The Phuncky Feel One” and “Hand on the Pump,” with the same in­fec­tious West Coast beat cham­pi­oned by Snoop Dogg, found an army of fans among the stoner-rock crowd. The al­bum quickly went dou­ble-plat­inum, find­ing a spot on Spin mag­a­zine’s “90 Great­est Al­bums of the ’90s.” Cy­press Hill, who later hit No. 1 with “In­sane in the Brain,” are bring­ing the sil­ver-an­niver­sary tour of the mu­sic on “Cy­press Hill” to a na­tion less mys­ti­fied by mar­i­juana if still be­dev­iled by old di­vi­sions. When: 8 p.m. Tues­day, May 3 Where: Rev­o­lu­tion Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Laud­erdale Cost: $27.50 ad­vance, $29 at the door Con­tact: 954-449-1025 or JoinTheRev­o­lu­tion.net
