Cypress Hill scored a #1 rap song in 1993 with “Insane In The Brain.” Showtime will premiere a documentary about the Hip Hop group titled Cypress Hill: Insane In The Brane on April 20.
Insane In The Brane is part of Showtime’s Hip Hop 50 programming. The film chronicles the West Coasters’ decades-long career and influence on the music business.
Sony Music Entertainment and Mass Appeal produced the forthcoming doc. A nearly two-minute trailer for Insane In The Brane arrived on YouTube yesterday.
Director Estevan Oriol uses never-before-seen archival footage to tell the story of Cypress Hill. In addition, Insane In The Brane viewers will see rare photos of band members B Real, DJ Muggs, Sen Dog, and Eric “Bobo” Correa.
Besides the Gold-certified “Insane In The Brain” single, Cypress Hill also reached #1 on Billboard‘s Hot Rap Songs chart with “The Phuncky Feel One.” The South Gate representatives’ “Throw Your Set In The Air” was a mainstream hit as well.
Cypress Hill’s discography also includes the group’s self-titled 1991 debut album. Their Black Sunday project dropped in 1993. That studio LP, which hosts the “Insane In The Brain” track, earned 3x-Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.
