Marc Anthony Guests on Cypress Hill Album

Cypress Hill and Marc Anthony

It’s not often you hear Cypress Hill and Marc Anthony mentioned in the same sentence, but the hip-hop/rock group and Latin crooner are about to turn heads with their new collaboration.

Producer Jim Jonsin tells Rap-Up.com that Jennifer Lopez’s husband is featured on “Armada Latina,” a song off Cypress Hill’s forthcoming album Rise Up. “I got Marc Anthony on the hook,” he reveals. Pitbull, whose hit single “Hotel Room Service” was produced by Jonsin, rounds out the trifecta.

In addition, Jonsin produced a few other tracks on the West Coast veterans’ first studio effort in six years, which marks a departure for both parties. “The sessions with Cypress Hill were a good example of harder music and more meaningful music,” he says. “I’m excited about this project.”

Rise Up‘s first single is the title track featuring Rage Against the Machine/ Street Sweeper Social Club’s Tom Morello, who also appears on a second cut “Shut ’Em Down.” The album is due April 6 on Priority Records.

    sounds very scary. Marc Anthony is a sell out and Cypress Hill is the real thing. Can someone remind me why Marc Anthony is even famous ? Didnt he really only have one hit in the general market ? He was a great salsa singer but its more smoke and mirrors que mas na.

    I wanna hear that! Marc Anthony needs all the hype he can get; he’s starting to get the title of “J.Lo’s hubby”. He’s definitely above that.

    Well, let’s see: Cypress Hill in youtube have a song with over five million views and then two songs with over two million views and then with less than one million. On the other hand Marc Anthony has more than one track with over six million views more than one song with more than five million views many songs with over two million views and many with more than one million views. If you want to see a live performance of Marc Anthony have uploaded thousands from his concerts. If you want to see a live performance of Cypress Hill will have great difficulty to find. So would you please explain what exactly is meant by “real thing” for that band? Because each live performance of Marc Anthony is really live and no other performer can achieve such singing live.
    On the other hand, if one person read more gossip than listen music for him Marc Anthony will always be the husband of Jennifer Lopez. This does not mean anything. Many of my acquaintances whose are actively listeners to music saying: Is Marc Anthony Actually was married to a someone famous?
    But have one thing that I am fully agree – has made me afraid to think about what would happen with this collaboration.
