Cypress Hill Film Two Videos

Trouble and "Lowrider" due later this month

November 8, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Cypress Hill just finished shooting the video for "Trouble." The video for the rock single from the band's December 4th release, Stoned Raiders, was filmed in downtown Los Angeles, including a segment shot in the city's little-known and little-used subway system.

"It's a series of different scenes," says Cypress Hill's B-Real. "Obviously in my verse I'm talking about my past and how crazy it was and the trouble I used to get into and the demons that haunt me for it. In the video I'm getting chased in most of my scenes by my own demons for all the shit I did."

Other scenes include live footage of Cypress Hill performing in a subway tunnel and an impromptu mosh pit on Sen Dog's front lawn. The group partnered with Chris Robinson (DMX, Jay-Z) for the clip, giving the director free reign to write his own treatment for the video.

"He has a lot of good ideas," says B-Real. "We basically let him run with it. I didn't want to tie the guy's hands behind his back by sticking to the guidelines of what the song is."

Cypress Hill also filmed the video for the rap single, "Lowrider," which was shot by director team Smith and Borin. True to its title, the clip features the group tooling around in '57 Chevy's and '64 Impalas. Both videos will hit video networks this month.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
