Tired of waiting for a new Rage Against the Machine album? Here’s Cypress Hill’s “Rise Up” a song as close as you can get to Rage without being Rage. Tom Morello plays guitar on the track, which probably has a lot to do with the similarity, but B. Real and Sen Dog flow like Zack de la Rocha something fierce here, hurrying their syllables and getting political about La Raza. It’s probably a good look for Cyrpes Hill, who have long-flirted with going completely rap-rock. The video is better than the song though, it’s got a political party poster look, which had to have taken a long time to put together.
Cypress Hill’s Rise Up is due out on April 20.
