Everyone’s favorite West Coast smoker not named Snoop Dogg has linked up with Young De to share a Laugh with DJBooth. Holding the mic in the spotlight is Cypress Hill’s B-Real, who hips listeners to his cred after going unheard from since his ‘90s classics How I Could Just Kill A Man and Insane in the Brain. Producer Scoop DeVille samples Suzanne Vega’s classic, Tom’s Diner, adding heavy piano stabs, as B-Real and Young De give listeners a taste of life in California that could also double as background music for an issue of “High Times.” At the top of the year, Real hopes to break conventional perception with his next solo disc, Smoke ‘N Mirrors, slated for a January 27 release. If he keeps this up, it’ll be more smoke than mirrors that’ll get hip-hop heads racing to cop his album.
