Cypress Hill Will Become First Latino Hip-Hop Group With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cypress Hill is set to make history by becoming the first Latino hip-hop group to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Only a limited number of hip-hop acts have ever be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Pharrell, P Diddy, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg are among those to receive the honor. It’s the latest accolade for the duo that has left an undeniable impact on hip-hop for the last 30 years.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will present Cypress Hill with the 2,660th star on the iconic sidewalk.

Cypress Hill, comprised of B Real, Sen Dog, DJ Muggs, and Eric “Bobo” Correa, became a huge staple in west coast hip-hop during the early 90’s. The group shot to fame due to their rap classic “Insane in the Membrane.” and the release of their sophomore album, “Black Sunday.” Cypress Hill recently released their ninth studio album, “Elephants on Acid” last year.

The Grammy-nominated group also made prior history by becoming the first Latino hip-hop group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums, selling over 20 million albums worldwide. Their star will be located just miles from where the group formed 30 years ago in South Gate, California.

Cypress Hill will join the likes of other Latino legends honored on the Walk of Fame, including Guillermo del Toro and Selena.

“We are proud to honor the first Latino American hip-hop recording group,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a press release. “They have been successful as a group for three decades and we know they will continue their success for many years to come.”

The induction ceremony will take place on April 18 in front of Greenleaf Restaurant located on Hollywood Blvd. George Lopez and close friend Xhibit will be among the guest speakers at the ceremony.

The group has made an impact beyond just music on the Latino community in southern California.

Cypress Hill has continually given back to their hometown of South Gate throughout their careers. Whether it be through scholarships, work with organizations like Guns for Goods, Wounded Heroes of America, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The gourp has also been huge advocates for legal marijuana. Just last year the group launched a cannabis line alongside the release of their latest studio album.

Cypress Hill has also inspired countless of other west-coast rappers through their unique sounds and production style. The honor is indicative of the social and musical impact the group has had for the last 30 years.

‘The Tax Collector’ Director Denies That Shia LeBeouf Is In Brownface

Shia LeBeouf is in the new movie “The Tax Collector” and people are accusing him of brownface for this role. The actor takes on the accent for the role and got a chest tattoo to do the role authentically. For some, it is cultural appropriation and it has started a debate.

Shia LeBeouf is the man in “The Tax Collector” and people have questions.

The pulse-pounding trailer has all of the action you can handle so you can only imagine what the full movie is like. The movie is all about the tax collector having to fight to protect his family when a rival takes over his turf. LeBeouf is ready to do whatever it takes to save his family.

Some people are very upset about the role for LeBeouf.

The tattoos and the accent are too much for people. Some have argued that the role was not at all a way of cultural appropriation. Instead, LeBeouf is playing a white role that happens to have grown up in a neighborhood where he picked up the accent and a certain way of dress.

The argument is going both ways with people fighting to defend him.

While the role could be really problematic for some, others see themselves reflected in it. There are many people defending LeBeouf because they too grow up in a neighborhood and took on the culture of the neighborhood.

The director of the film, David Ayer, spoke out saying that LeBeouf is not in brownface.

“He’s a white guy playing a white guy. He’s not taking anyone’s work away,” Ayer told the LA Times to calm the critics.

What do you think?

It seems like a woman innocently sipping a smoothie and enjoying her day. However, if you look closely, you will see that the young woman is actually wearing a ring on an important finger.

The news is spreading fast all over social media.

Nothing has been confirmed but social media works as good as a small-town rumor mill. As soon as one person sees it, everyone has to know about it. Like, it can never just be a little secret for people hold among themselves. Twitter is the land of snap reactions and unfounded claims.

The rumor has already started breaking hearts across the internet.

Honestly, the best part about celebrities is believing that you can one day be their boo. Now, with this cryptic video, it is clear that Bad Bunny’s heart is being permanently taken away from us.

Some folks are just mad.

Like, calm down. It is literally not a big deal because of the likelihood of finding and marrying a celebrity is pretty low. Hollywood has spent too much time trying to get us to believe that that was so possible.

Some people are happy for the young woman finding happiness.

Nothing wrong with celebrating someone who is winning at life. If you were engaged to Bad Bunny, you’d be happy too.
