Although I am extremely happy to see Hip-Hop welcome in a plethora of rookies as of late, it’s still nice to see the elder statesman of the culture still put out quality music amidst the fickle industry that has forced us to forget about the majority of our legends.
B-Real, ¼ of the legendary West Coast Hip-Hop group Cypress Hill, is set to make a comeback with his first solo album on Duck Down Records, Smoke N Mirrors. He has released two joints off the project so far, and both are indictations for this to be one of the better albums of next year.
Both of the songs entitled “Laugh” and “Snake Eyes,” have distinctive West Coast influenced beats that the rapper utilizes to describe the California street life alongside his protégé Young B.
Smoke N Mirrors looks to be a promising re-introduction to the Latino MC with possible production from the likes of DJ Quik, Fredwreck, Scoop Deville, and B-Real himself. Set to feature includes the likes of Snoop Dogg, Damian Marley and his Cypress Hill cohort Sen Dog.
