The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has unveiled the 2019 class of honorees who will receive a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cypress Hill are among those who will be given the honor. The Hip Hop vets join The Lettermen, country singer Faith Hill, Tommy Mottola, P!nk, Teddy Riley, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris and the late Jackie Wilson.
Cypress Hill comprises of B-Real, Sen Dog, DJ Muggs and Eric Bobo . They stepped on the scene in 1991 with their self-titled debut album. But, it was 1993’s Black Sunday that officially put them on the map. Songs like “Hits From The Bong,” “Insane In The Brain” and “I Ain’t Going Out Like That” made Cypress Hill household names and had kids all over America doing bong rips in their honor.
After releasing six more albums, including 1995’s Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom, the group took a hiatus. B-Real is off doing Prophets Of Rage with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord, and members of Rage Against The Machine, while DJ Muggs just dropped a collaboration with DOOM called“Death Wish.” Somehow, Cypress Hill found the time reconvene and will release Elephants On Acidsometime in 2018, their first album in eight years.
According to Hollywood Walk of Fame website, dates haven’t been scheduled for each star’s ceremonies. Honorees have up to two years to schedule them before they expire.
