Cypress Hill Compares Kendrick Lamar To Tupac: He's Got Pop World & Street Level

The South Gate, California hip-hop group that is Cypress Hill has produced some classic hits especially for the 4/20 holiday. It's safe to say they could be considered a legendary clique from the west coast but they humbly say that's up for their fans to decide. "If people wanna tag us with labels and stuff then that's cool, you know whatever it is we've dealt with it," B-Real tells Montreality. "Legend is a pretty awesome label so we wouldn't run from that."

Later in the interview, that just sees B-Real & Sen Dog, the duo talk about Kendrick Lamar and how proud they are that he, too, is from the west side California. "He helped bring the coast back with a few others, but he really did a few different things," B-real adds. "He showed two sides himself musically - when he wants to do some polished pop type shit he can do it and when he wants to get down and do that gritty, street people shit he can do that too." 

B-Real then explains how he has certain characteristics as Tupac. "He can be in the pop world and he can be right here on the street level."

Watch their full interview below and hear them talk Kung Fu Kenny at the 3:50 mark.
