Top 15 B-Real Flash Facts
Multi-platinum magic with Cypress Hill, music production, sick collabs and outspoken advocacy, B-Real has done it all. So, in honor of our totally dope March smoking supplies box created with B-REAL, we put together this list of Top 15 B-Real Flash Facts highlighting some of his awesome accomplishments.
Obviously, B-Real, aka Louis Freese, was the frontman for Cypress Hill - a legendary group. However, many don’t realize that Cypress Hill was the first Latino American hip-hop recording group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums.
Loved by the masses, the group was nominated for Grammys for 3 consecutive years in the 90s, and considered among the main originators of West Coast rap and hip-hop of the early 1990s.
B-Real, 4 / 5 of Rage Against the Machine and Chuck D of Public Enemy formed rap-rock supergroup Prophets of Rage.
And a part of rap metal groups like Kush & Psycho Realm.
Both with Cypress Hill and on his own, B-Real has collaborated with some insane musicians from a variety of genres.
They even appeared on an episode of The Simpsons!
On their 8th studio album, Rise Up, featured contributors included Everlast, Tom Morello, Daron Malakian, Pitbull, Marc Anthony and Mike Shinoda.
In 2012, Cypress Hill dabbled in dubstep, collaborating with Rusko on the EP Cypress x Rusko and also contributed to Deadmau5’s “Failbait”.
Solo, B-Real collabed with the likes of Snoop, D12, Red Man, RBX, Outkast, Method Man, Coolio, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and more.
He teamed up with the latter 5 for “Hit Em High,” the Monstars’ anthem in Space Jam!
B-Real has also been a music producer in recent years, with clients ranging from Proof to D12 to WWE. Similarly, he manages a group of music producers, the Audio Hustlaz.
He is a longtime advocate of smoking.
Finally, the most fun fact (besides that DHC got to collaborate with this powerhouse on our March Box of smoking supplies) is that B-Real and the rest of the gang are set to release Elephants On Acid, the first Cypress Hill album since 2010, some time this year! DHC, for one, cannot wait.
