RoadRunner April 18, 2024 by Gary Alpert

In a pulsating whirlwind of energy and rhythm, Cypress Hill descended upon Boston’s RoadRunner on Thursday night, turning the venue into a cauldron of hip-hop fervor. With a lineup boasting the iconic trio of Sen Dog, B-Real, and DJ Muggs, along with the percussion prowess of Eric Bobo, the stage was set for an unforgettable evening of beats, rhymes, and unapologetic attitude.

The night kicked off with DJ Muggs taking command of the turntables, setting the tone for what was to come with an electrifying DJ set that had the crowd bouncing and swaying to the infectious beats. As the anticipation reached its peak, the familiar strains of “Once Again” filled the air, signaling the arrival of Cypress Hill in all their glory.

From the very first moment, Sen Dog, B-Real, and DJ Muggs commanded the stage with an effortless swagger, delivering each track with an intensity that ignited the crowd. Hits like “Check Mate,” “Hand on the Pump,” and “When the Shit Goes Down” had the audience rapping along word for word, their voices blending seamlessly with the raw energy emanating from the stage.

Throughout the set, Cypress Hill showcased their versatility, seamlessly transitioning between gritty street anthems and laid-back, funk-infused tracks. “A to the K,” “Phuncky Feel One,” and “Tequila” had the crowd grooving with abandon, while classics like “Low Rider” and “Latin Lingo” transported everyone to the sun-drenched streets of LA.

But it wasn’t just about the music; Cypress Hill also brought their trademark sense of humor and irreverence to the stage. DJ & Prec engaged in a friendly battle, showcasing their turntablism skills to the delight of the crowd, while tracks like “New Weed Medley” and “Boom Diddy” had everyone laughing and nodding along in appreciation.

As the night wore on, Cypress Hill showed no signs of slowing down, delivering knockout performances of fan favorites like “Illusions,” “Throw Ya Set,” and “Rap Super Star.” Each track was greeted with uproarious applause and deafening cheers, a testament to the enduring legacy of one of hip-hop’s most influential acts.

As the final notes of “Insane” reverberated through the venue, it was clear that Cypress Hill had delivered a performance for the ages. With their unparalleled energy, infectious charisma, and undeniable talent, Sen Dog, B-Real, DJ Muggs, and Eric Bobo once again proved why they are legends of the genre.
