About this album

Black Sunday is the second album by rap group Cypress Hill. It was released on July 20, 1993.

It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, recording the highest Soundscan for a rap group at the time. The album went double Platinum in the U.S.

The first single, “Insane in the Brain,” became a crossover hit, initiating their following among rock audiences.

The song “Hits from the Bong” was used in the movie How High.

A censored version of the album was also made which removes the song “A To The K”.

The booklet to the album contains 19 facts about the history and positive attributes of cannabis.



In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source Magazine’s 100 Best Rap Albums.

Rolling Stone (9/16/93, p.64) - 4 Stars - Excellent - “…it’s the Cypress combo of stark grooves and cinematic gangsta fairy tales that allows them to rule the streets, a formula not messed with on Black Sunday…”

The Source (9/93, p.82) - 4 Stars - Excellent - “…a darker sequel…this album is definitely worth buying as it easily rips the frame out of all those Cypress bandwagon jumpers…”

Melody Maker (1/1/94, p.77) - Ranked #35 in Melody Maker’s list of the `Albums Of The Year’ for 1993.
