CYPRESS HILL




Cypress Hill, originally called DVX, was the first Latino group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums. Cypress Hill has sold over 18 million albums worldwide. They became the first rap group to have 2 albums in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 at the same time.

Their first album, entitled Cypress Hill, sold 2 million copies in the US alone. The album featured the hit song HOW I COULD JUST KILL A MAN. Cypress Hill’s second album, Black Sunday, debuted at NUMBER 1 and sold over 3 million copies. The lead single from that album was INSANE IN THE BRAIN. In 1995, the group released Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom, that album sold 1.5 million copies on the strength of the hit single THROW YOUR SET IN THE AIR.



TODAY
Cypress Hill are still making music and touring around the world. They left Sony Records this year, and are now signed to Suburban Noize Records.

BEST MASHUPS

I compiled some of the BEST mashups EVER! Just in case you’re not famaliar with the term mashup, a mashup is another word for a MIX (combining verses and a track from 2 different songs). Honestly, some of these mashups are better than the original song. BOW!




QUEEN VS. OUTKAST





MICHAEL JACKSON VS. NIRVANA







DESTINY’S CHILD VS. DANITY KANE






JANET JACKSON VS. MICHAEL JACKSON







AALIYAH VS. JANET JACKSON







LUDACRIS VS. JANET JACKSON








JAY-Z VS. TOTO






NOTORIOUS BIG VS. RIHANNA

UPDATE: USHER

It looks like we will finally get an Usher album in 2010. So far, Usher has leaked 3 songs, PAPERS, IN MY BAG, AND DADDY’S HOME. If these songs are any indication of what to expect from Raymond vs. Raymond, then I think Usher is coming back really STRONG. Even the promo video for the album is well constructed: BOW! URSHER BABY!

Who cares who slept with who, who has more money, etc, etc. In the end, the only thing that should count is WHO MAKES BETTER MUSIC. Even though 50 Cent and Rick Ross are beefing, oddly enough, they’ve both worked with Robin Thicke, Akon, Ne-Yo, and The Game.

DONDRIA UPDATE

A few months ago, I did a post about Dondria, Jermaine Dupri’s R&B protégé, I asked if she could bring So So Def back to its dominance. Last month, she released her first single, YOU’RETHE ONE. I actually like the song because I am feeling the old-school vibe and Dondria’s vocals. Anyway, without further ado, here’s her first single, YOU’RE THE ONE:



DONDRIA- YOU’RE THE ONE
