Playlist: B Real of Cypress Hill
Tue, 17 Mar 2009 13:22:54
B Real's new solo album may be called Smoke and Mirrors, but there are no illusions when it comes to the quality of the legendary Cypress Hill MC's songs. B Real delivers a dark hood narrative over the course of the record, and in the process, he drops some of his most fiery and raw verses to date. While working on Cypress Hill's next juggernaut of an album, B-Real took some time to share his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com
About what's in his iTunes, the rapper says, "I've been listening to a lot of Satellite Radio, so I jam whatever they're playing there. It's a lot of 50 Cent, this cat named Maino and some of Eminem's new stuff. I'm definitely not listening to regular radio right now [Laughs]."
He elaborates, "Regular radio is a bunch of stuff that's not necessarily my cup of tea. It's a lot of really popular rap—which is cool. That's their lane. We all want opportunities to be able to make a career and do our thing, but it's still not normally what I would listen to. Most radio stations have become Top 40. You hear Lil Wayne, T.I., Soulja Boy, T-Pain and stuff like that. That's cool, but I like listening to different shit."
What is some of that aforementioned "different shit?"
