We told you months ago that two key members of Cypress
Hill--Sen Dog and DJ Muggs--had departed, and that the version of Cypress Hill
out on the road included just one original member, B-Real. Now we've found out
what Muggs has been up to. He's been working on a solo album, to be called
"Soul Assassins." Already completed are tracks with rapping by RZA/Genius (Wu
Tang Clan), Mobb Deep, KRS One, Cypress Hill (does that mean B-Real or what?)
and MC Eiht. The album is expected out early next year. Meanwhile, a new
Cypress Hill EP titled "Unreleased & revamped" that includes a "Fugees remix"
of "Boom Biddy Bye Bye," a Q-Tip remix of "Illusions" and a T-Ray remix of
"Hits From the Bong," will be released Aug. 13.
