I don't know if it is a grammy award winning collaboration as they say in the video but it's raw and I like it.

Remember Cypress Hill? You know that song "Insane In The Brain" and you loved it. Well, they are back with a new song and new CD.
The new CD is entitled "Rise Up" and is the group's first since 2004. The new song "It Ain't Nothin'" features Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello.
So, it is up to you all. Will Cypress Hill comeback to the masses and funk it or will they stay with the cult following as you dunk it?
The choice is yours, not mine.-Dr.FB
