Weed is now the primary point of entry for white people into hip-hop, and much of that connection is built upon the legacy of Cypress Hill. The recipe for "Insane": the group's "How I Could Just Kill A Man," a pinch of Hannah Field's classic "Puff Puff Give," a Lollapalooza booking, and stir. The melanin-deprived love when rappers get all wacky.
