How I Could Just Kill A Man b/w The Phunky Feel One (7")

Cypress Hill
Ships in late September.

This limited edition anniversary release is a black vinyl 7-inch recreation of the original 12, featuring the singles classic artwork on a printed 7 jacket, plus a special matte black 2nd outer sleeve, embossed with the seminal skull design.

The second single from Cypress Hills legendary debut presented in a high gloss black on black UV coated outer jacket emblazoned with the Cypress Hill logo in white. Inside, the 7 is housed in a full color recreation of the art from the original 12 issue.

In the early 1990s, a dark force began to rise in Los Angeles, fueled by classic 80s New York boom-bap and equally inspired by
evil-tinged rock groups from the 1970s, like Black Sabbath. Just like that era of Los Angeles itself, pre-Riots and pre-The Chronic, Cypress Hill – producer and DJ Muggs with main MC B-Real and his lyrical partner Sen Dog – brought the citys bubbling unrest to the surface, bathed in weed smoke and exploring injustices done to the underclass by both the Police State and the Government.

Technically a Double A-Side, Cypress Hills first single, from 1991, took a minute to penetrate the rap scene at large. Once it took
hold, though, there was no turning back. Part of the delay may have been the aural dichotomy shown here – The Phunky Feel One
is a ridiculously funky groover, laced with liquid flows that might not create a full-on party vibe, but certainly brought listeners to the brink of the dancefloor. The flip, which eventually became the groups breakthrough (thanks in part to its use in the climax to the film
Juice), was a claustrophobic exploration of the gang lifestyle and mindset that was prevalent in the LA of the late 80s and early 90s. Here is something you cant understand, the chorus snarled, How I could just kill a man.

According to group members, Phunky Feel was their record labels choice for the A-Side, and Kill A Man was the song they themselves wanted to show the world with their first shot. No matter which way you slice it, the single showed an impressive range in just two songs – a complexity which would soon be fully exposed with the groups debut LP later that year.
