Sen Dog checked in after Cypress Hill’s 20th Anniversary Show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California last month, thanking fans for their loyal support over the past two decades. The 45-year-old Cuban-American rapper writes:
We want to thank all of our fans from East to West and North to South all around the world. It is because of you guys that we have been able to do what we love for over 20 years strong. On behalf of B-Real, Muggs, Bobo, and myself, we love you guys and we’ll continue rocking the stages for many more years to come.

B-Real of Cypress Hill spoke with In Utah This Week about the group’s time off during their past eight months of touring in support of ‘Cannabis Dreams’, which has seen them working on individual projects in addition to new Cypress Hill material. “We all took our time to do the side projects that we were itching to do,” the 40-year-old rapper explained. “We’ve done that but we’re focused more on Cypress Hill. I will still put out my mix tapes, but first and foremost and always the most important thing to me is Cypress Hill.”
B-Real of Cypress Hill spoke with Hustler magazine about how the marijuana loving hip hop group were able to smoke weed in-flight back in the day before technology and laws have made the risks too great. “We were on a flight in maybe ’93 and our tour manager at the time was really addicted to weed. He could not be somewhere and not smoke,” B-Real explained. “He went into the airplane bathroom and figured out how to do it… so I went and smoked in the bathroom. The toilet and the sink, they both suck air down. So you just blow the smoke in there. That will never happen again. It was a good trick while it lasted.”
