B-Real From Cypress Hill Talks Cannabis In A New Interview

The rapper was keen to share his group's shared love for weed.

In a new interview, the one and only B-Real from American hip-hop group Cypress Hill recently spoke with The Guardian, talking music and hip-hop culture. It didn’t take long for the rapper to show a smile when the outlet began talking about weed. 

When asked who the “ideal collaborator” would be on a Cypress Hill track, dead or alive, B-Real was quick to respond, “Bob Marley.” In fact, Cypress Hill’s track, ‘I Wanna Get High,’ was inspired by Rita Marley’s tune, ‘One Draw.’ The rapper explained, “the whole Marley Movement was a big influence on us,” especially in terms of raising awareness for legalization. 

On a more personal note, The Guardian wanted to see just how much weed B-Real has smoked his entire life. While this is a tough question to answer, the rapper came back with a playful, “Oh man, I don’t know.” To give us an estimate, he said, “During our two-hour Dr. Greenthumb show on YouTube, we’ll have four or five joints apiece.”

But that’s not all; B-Real explained that he’ll “probably have six before and another eight afterward…I’ve built up a tolerance, so we’re high, but not so that we can’t function.”

When cleverly referencing bars from Cypress Hill’s ‘Insane in the Brain,’ the interviewer asked when the last time the cops had tried to bust him for marijuana. A laughing B-Real responds, “Oddly enough, I’ve been pulled over many times here in California,” and each time, he’s had a “tremendous amount of cannabis” on him.

In each instance, the rapper said cops have been “stupefied that I haven’t tried to hide it.” It turns out B-Real and Cypress Hill haven’t had much trouble with the law regarding their cannabis use, and he says law enforcement didn’t believe that he would have “the audacity to actually smoke cannabis on stage in front of their faces, but they were wrong.”

The Guardian asked which is his preferred method of ingestion, edibles, bongs, blunts, or spliffs. B-Real says he “stopped doing blunts in ’96…’97 bongs.” Although he does hit a fresh bong now and then, the rapper prefers “to smoke regular US joints, without any tobacco.”

In terms of the group’s preferred methods, the rapper concluded, “we’re well rounded…we can do it all.”
