Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs

"Hip-hop used to be based on pride of original beats and original rhymes and having your own style, and anybody that copied wasn't even accepted in this game. But hip-hop f---ed up, and they adopted the way pop music makes its music, and a lot of these pop theories, where, 'Let's remake these old songs' -- the way that pop music does all the time -- [results in artists] always redoing somebody's songs. That became a bad habit of hip-hop. You know, I don't like the stuff. I think the music sucks. But they can make their money, and that's all good. I ain't mad at the brothers making their money. I just don't like the art, and I'm gonna let it be known." -- DJ Muggs, Cypress Hill rapper
