Original gangsters Cypress Hill have teamed up with Dubstep DJ/Producer Rusko for a new EP set for release this April called Cypress X Rusko. Since Lou Reed and Metallica paired up to release one of the worst records of all time last year, any cross genre collaborations from now on will be met with severe scurtiny, but let us not forget, the Californians managed to pull if off quite well bcak in 2000 when they released the 'rock' inspired Skull & Bones (well the Bones side anyway).

"I think dubstep is a natural progression of hip-hop." says Sen Dog. "Especially the way that we formulated it with Rusko, there’s definitely some roughness to it."

Have a listen to the first track from the EP, 'Roll It, Light It', and judge for yourself.
