"Latin Lingo" was the last single off Cypress Hill's debut self-titled album, released in 1992 under the Ruffhouse label and produced by DJ Muggs. The song charted Billboard on both the US Rap and US R&B charts. "Latin Lingo" embodies Cypress Hill's Latin roots and displays great pride representing their culture. On the track, they showcased the unique language that set their rap apart from others- Spanglish- a romantic mashup of English and Spanish.
Cypress Hill first hit the scene in 1988, paving the way for all the 90s west coast hip-hop acts to follow. The group truly set a precedence for this era of rappers by being the first to sell platinum and multi-platinum albums globally. They were also the first hip hop group to earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Members of the group are Eric Bobo, Sen Dog, and B-Real.
The bulk of Cypress Hill's success came from 1989-1996 thanks to albums like Cypress Hill, Black Sunday, and Temples of Boom. Their touring schedule during this time was also noteworthy, appearing in iconic 1990s shows like Lollapalooza and Soul Assassins tour alongside notable rock acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, House of Pain, and Rage Against the Machine.
The legacy of this group carries a lot of weight thanks to a dedicated fanbase of hip-hop heads, their massive contributions to the music and culture, and amazing collectibles like this records, posters, and vintage t-shirts like this one.
