With Elephants On Acid impacting later this month, Cypress Hill are back with another taste of their upcoming album—which, unlike their last album (2008’s Rise), will have DJ Muggs back behind the boards and providing all the production.
“This record comes from the subconscious — the record is not a logical record. The title of the album comes from a dream I had,” Muggs, fresh off the release of his Dia Del Asesinato album, told hypebeast. “Don’t try to look for logical answers in this record — everything’s really abstract and surreal. All the ideas came from that [dream]. I had a dream of all these different elephants with guns, walking through the desert, and when I made the music, it’s like some psycho-circus sh*t … the record has zero to do with anything going on in contemporary music, we created our own surreal world. The goal was to create our own world and bring you into our world for an hour.”
Bringing part of that dream to life, Muggs, B-Real and Sen Dog smoke themselves “Crazy” in the new video for the album’s second single—following “Band of Gypsies.”
