“B-Real prefers to pay it forward. While the nasal voiced emcee and his partners DJ Muggs and Sen Dog didn’t get any handouts in the Rap ladder during their come up, they certainly got some help thanks to early, and unexpected, backing from established acts, particularly EPMD. With that in the mind the half Cuban, half Mexican is the guiding hand behind, The Harvest, Volume 1 a compilation album of handpicked talent, rhyming over the beats courtesy of B-Real and production partner J. Turner. Cypress Hill’s eighth album Rise Up—the group’s first after a six year hiatus—only dropped in late April 2010, so we got the O.G. marijuana advocate to touch on the topic of veteran acts get marketed and promoted in a changing music business, potentially working more with old nemesis Ice Cube and that beef he had with not one but two Hip Hop magazines.”

“Most notably known as the front man of one of hip hop’s most important Latino groups Cypress Hill, 20-year vet and legend in the game B-Real has taken his experience to the streets to amass a new breed of MC’s. With his newest project “The Harvest Vol. 1” B-Real is giving back to the game in taking on a mentor role to some of the hottest up & coming MC’s hip hop has to offer, due to hit stores and digital outlets September 28th.

Aygee, “The Harvest Vol. 1” is sure to transcend the culture as it offers something for everyone. ”
