It’s great to have DJ Muggs back at the helm of the production,” explains B-Real of Cypress Hill. “When Muggs, Sen and I work together there’s a chemistry between us that brings forth powerful music. It’s going to be ill, man. He’s got fire and a lot of people have been waiting for us to reunite like that, so we’re all looking forward to it.
