In a recent interview with Vibe, DJ Muggs revealed that he is working on Cypress Hill’s next album, and suggests it will be a return to form for the group.


“I didn’t do much on the last Cypress album,” explains Muggs, alluding to 2010’s Rise Up project on which he only contributed two tracks. “What I want from the group—and I know what the people want—is just that sound that drew you into Cypress the first three or four albums. What we are doing is making a dark record that’s really avant-garde. We are not even tripping on who is going to play it or what blog is going to get behind it. We have never given a fuck. We are just going to make a real dark Cypress Hill record.”

Muggs insists that there was never any beef between the longtime friends and collaborators. He chalks up his time apart from Cypress Hill with members wanting to stretch their artistic legs.

“The last few records they just wanted to try something different,” he says. “I pretty much handled all their records, all the production, so I was like, ‘Cool.’ I needed to do things for other inspiration. Sometimes I will leave hip-hop alone for a year. It kind of cleans the palette so I can come back in and want to make hip-hop.”

    I’ll believe it when I see it. Unless they release it for free, there is no way they can recreate that classic sound because Muggs was a master of sampling, and nowadays everybody just wants to sue the fuck out of everybody for sampling. It’s a real shame, because I’d love to hear more of that original Cypress sound.
