Sen Dog of Cypress Hill talks new music, appreciation, in advance of 'West Coast High Tour'

Giddy would be an understatement. I remember buying Cypress Hill’s self-titled debut album in 1991 on cassette tape and playing it to all my classmates in high school.

Songs like “How I Could Just Kill a Man,” “Hand on the Pump/Real Estate,” “The Phunky Feel One” and my personal favorite from the album, “Latin Lingo.” I was the guy in my class who other students would come to and ask for new music, but this time, it was different. I was the first to introduce Cypress Hill to my entire school. Probably a lie, but I told myself I was.

Some 28 years later, I expect to see some old classmates at the West Coast High Tour on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the House of Blues in Houston. Cypress Hill will headline the show will also features another favorite of mine — Hollywood Undead.

Tickets for the show are available online at ticketmaster.com starting at $34.50. Do not wait to buy them at the door, I’m certain it will be a sell out.

B-Real and Sen Dog are promoting a new record, Elephants on Acid, which is their first new music in nearly 10 years. They reunite with DJ Muggs as producer, who last worked on their 2004 album Til Death Do Us Part.

I had the opportunity with speak with Sen Dog about the upcoming tour, new music, and what he appreciates about the longevity of Cypress Hill.
