Cypress Hill Link With Black Milk For “Champion Sound”
Cypress Hill and Black Milk collaborate for “Champion Sound,” which finds the group returning to their hip-hop roots.
The legendary Cypress Hill has come through with a replacement single, linking up with Detroit producer Black Milk for “Champion Sound.” With the track arriving as a part of the upcoming RBI Baseball 21 soundtrack, a computer game that hits consoles and PC today, it doesn’t necessarily signal a forthcoming release from the West Coast collective. Yet Cypress Hill previously teased that their upcoming album would be produced in its entirety by Black Milk, so perhaps we’re watching an early glimpse.
Milk’s sonic fingerprints are everywhere this one, as dusty samples combine with crisp drum and a cool bassline. Though their previous effort Elephants On Acid found Cypress Hill exploring a more experimental sound, this track finds them employing a more straightforward approach — which is to mention , Sen Dog and B-Real spitting bars over a grimy instrumental. “It ain’t a riddle, we never play within the middle,” spits B, catching a slick pocket. “We spin it, you are feeling a touch / Hesitation, you’re so riddled.”
Check out “Champion Sound” now, and pontificate if you’re excited to ascertain what Cypress Hill and Black Milk are cooking up these past few years.
And you could never stop runnin’
When you see me pop
When you could predict the outcome
Hands raised, I’m the champion
It ain’t a riddle, we never play in the middle
