With Cypress Hill and Rusko’s ‘Roll it, Light it’, we are bearing witness to one of dubstep’s highest profile cross genre collaborations yet. These two heavyweights come together to bring you some awesome rap-step by blending Cypress Hill’s signature sound with the kinds of beats customarily heard out of Rusko’s monitors to create a whole new monster. The plodding bassline and distinct vocals give the track the raw energy that only these two artists could create. Along with the audio comes a stunning video that goes as hard as the track. Using futuristic special effects, the video creates a somehow clean but grimy feel that pairs perfectly with the audio to please even the most discerning techi’s palate.
‘Roll It, Light It’ is the first single from the forthcoming 5 track EP, Cypress x Rusko, due to drop this April.
