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.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
