(CelebrityAccess) – Legendary Latino hip-hop group Cypress Hill has signed with BMG for the release of their first album in eight years.
Due out on September 28th, Elephants On Acid, will be the group’s ninth studio effort. The album was produced by Cypress Hill co-founder DJ Muggs.
Having made a name for themselves throughout the 90s and into the 2000s, the group’s catalog of hits includes songs like, “Insane In The Brain,” “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That” and “(Rock) Superstar.” Their 1991 debut album sold more than two million copies in the US alone while their follow-up, 1993’s Black Sunday, debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and was certified triple-platinum.
Commenting on the signing, Maximilian Kolb, Director A&R Recorded Music BMG Germany, said: “We are delighted to be working with Cypress Hill. Not only did they arguably kickstart the whole Latino hip-hop movement, interestingly they created music which has as much resonance here in Germany as it has in the US, influencing a new generation of artists. Eight years since their last studio album, we are very excited at the potential for this new record.”
