Cypress Hill and Deadmau5 Collabo

To the casual listener, Hip Hop and Dubstep sound like two different brands of music that should be kept apart. I say that too because I can count on one hand the amount of Hip Hop/Dubstep collaborations I've heard to date. (I'm not counting Dubstep remixes of Hip Hop songs either, I'm talking a Hip Hop artist collaborates with a Dubstep DJ or group)

Since I'm a fan of both genres you can probably guess how I'm going to react to @cypress_hill's new track with @deadmau5. Most probably think this is an out of left field collabo, but the proof was in the pudding when new of Cypress Hill's new collaboration album with @RUSKOOFFICIAL surfaced. If you're not sure what to picture, look no further than the video below for their lead single together calledRoll It, Light It...

Since @b_real420 and @ogsendog have always been known for having an unrivaled intensity on the mic, branching out into Dubstep seems like a logical progression in my eyes. Their in-your-face, unapologetic delivery blends well with the equally audacious electro rhythms that Dubstep is known for. Hopefully this ends up being one of the first dates in a long relationship between two genres that are taking over more market share of popular music by the day.

Oh and don't sleep on that Cypress X Rusko EP due out in April...#DubHop
