DVX or Devastating Vocal Excellence was actually the real name of Cypress Hill. The group was created in 1986 when brothers Sen Dog and Mellow Man Ace joined forces with Muggs and B Real. Soon after, Mellow Man Ace left the band, and there they started doing Latin and hip hop music, creating their own unique style. The members decided to rename change their name into Cypress Hill. Members of Cypress Hill are popular American hip hop talents. The group was the very first Latino American hip hop band to achieve a multi-platinum award after successfully selling more than 18 million copies of one of their albums worldwide. The group however, became notorious because of their false advocacy on cannabis.
The group started out small and humble, performing around Los Angeles. They eventually signed with Columbia in year 1991. The group was very popular then being the very first Latino group to make it on the spotlight of hip hop music, but their support for marijuana users was actually not a good publicity. The group actually campaigned for its legislation and their started to change their music as well into something more funk rather than slow and bass.
Luckily, their love for funk music became well accepted in the 90s. DJ Muggs was the one who arranges the music with B Real’s unique nasal voice, it all sounded well and perfect. The pro pot position went a little crazy throughout the years, but it cannot be denied that the group’s first 2 albums were extremely powerful. Some of their most popular songs include “The Phuncky Fell One”, “How I Could Just Kill A Man”, and “Insane in the Brain”
Even though B Real was consistently good in doing the lyrics and singing and Mugg’s talent in composing music was still superb, the group’s next album called Temples of Boom, together with their new drummer Bobo, was still supported by their fans, yet they disintegrated slowly after. Sen Dog left the group and so Muggs started working as a solo artist. But after realizing that they are better off together doing hip hop music, B Real and Muggs just reunited in the late 90s to do more music. Soon after, they released Skull and Bones with the single “Superstar” making them very much popular once again. Succeeding albums included Stoned Raiders and Till Death Do Us Part. In 2010, they signed to Priority Records and they released their newest album called Rise Up.
