Hip hop mainstays Atmosphere and Cypress Hill will coheadline the KettleHouse Amphitheater on August 25, 2021 with special guest from Z-Trip.
This will be the first hip hop concert to hit the Amp and it’s with not one, but two killer acts! Twin Cities’ pride and joy, Atmosphere, has played the Wilma several times and they always put on a great show. It’s going to be a special night to see them outside on the big stage with West Coast legends, Cypress Hill.
Cypress Hill is the first rap group to have two albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time and are the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success. Since the release of Black Sunday, Cypress Hill have put out seven more albums including 2018’s critically acclaimed, Elephants on Acid. Cypress Hill made history once again in 2019 when the group was honored with their very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The group will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their self-titled debut this August with a SONY reissue on vinyl, 7-inch box set, a reissue across all DSP’s that includes eight unreleased tracks, as well as a graphic novel, a new remix for one of the tracks and an animated video for “Pigs”. Their latest single “Champion Sound” (March 2021), was produced by Black Milk, and appears on the soundtrack of R.B.I Baseball 21. They just announced that they will be releasing their “Hits From The Bong” documentary (release 2022) as part of Mass Appeal’s “Hip Hop 50” franchise in partnership with Showtime.
Atmosphere celebrated the 25th anniversary of their earliest official release, “God’s Bathroom Floor”, which was just introduced to streaming platforms in Feb 2021, and already has 1.2M+ streams on Spotify alone. The duo also celebrated the 18th birthday of Atmosphere’s legendary “God Loves Ugly” with a remixed version by EDM artists Zeds Dead and Subtronics which was released in June 2020. Atmosphere’s most recent album, The Day Before Halloween (released October 30, 2020) debuted in conjunction with a full-length movie, directed by Jason Goldwatch.
Z-Trip has won America’s Best DJ award and has worked with countless household names like Linkin Park, Public Enemy, Tom Morello, Nas, Travis Barker, Run The Jewels, Busta Rhymes and many others. He also helped launch and continues to curate for LL Cool J’s “Rock The Bells Radio” on Sirius XM

For over two decades, Atmosphere has maintained a course of rigorous output, releasing over two dozen studio albums, EP’s and collaborative side projects in as many years. In that time, the venerated duo have built a legacy out of bringing honesty, humility and vulnerability to the forefront of their music, continually challenging themselves to evolve without straying too far from their roots. Slug has proven masterful at storytelling and writing compelling narratives, leaving a trail of his own influence while paying homage to the rappers and songwriters that helped shape him. Ant has skillfully molded the soundtracks with inspiration from soul, funk, rock, reggae, and the wizardry of hip-hop’s pioneering DJ’s and producers, creating his own trademark sounds while providing the pulse for songs about life, love, stress and setbacks. At its essence, Atmosphere has been a musical shepherd, and with each new album comes a new journey as they guide generations of listeners through this thing called life.
About Cypress Hill
Three decades ago, B-Real, Sen Dog, and DJ Muggs sparked a trip that left popular culture stoned, stunned, and staggering in anticipation for more. Naming themselves after a local street in Los Angeles, Cypress Hill burst on the scene in 1991 with the release of their self-titled debut album. The singles “How I Could Just Kill a Man” and “The Phuncky Feel One” became underground hits, and the group’s public pro-marijuana stance earned them many fans among the alternative rock community. Cypress Hill followed their debut with Black Sunday in the summer of 1993, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200, garnered three GRAMMY® Award nominations, and went triple platinum in the U.S. As a result, Cypress Hill became the first rap group to have two albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time and are the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success. Since the release of Black Sunday, Cypress Hill have put out seven more albums including 2018’s critically acclaimed, Elephants on Acid. Cypress Hill made history once again in 2019 when the group was honored with their very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2021, Cypress Hill released “Champion Sound.” Produced by Black Milk, the single appears on the soundtrack of R.B.I Baseball 21, the eighth installment of the R.B.I. franchise developed by Major League Baseball and is also the featured song for the band’s partnership with Montejo Cerveza.
