After a lengthy separation, DJ Muggs is back with Cypress Hill as the band's producer. "It's going to be ill, man," frontman B-Real says about their upcoming 2015 album with Muggs at the helm.

"When Muggs, Sen Dog and I work together, there's a chemistry between us that brings forth powerful music," B-Real adds. "He's got fire and a lot of people have been waiting for us to reunite like that, so we're looking forward to it."

In 2010, Muggs (nee Lawrence Muggerud) left the group he co-founded with B-Real (Louis Freese) and Sen Dog (Senen Reyes) in 1989. In addition to being the group's DJ, Muggs produced their albums. He was replaced by DJ Julio G. Percussionist Eric Bobo joined Cypress Hill as a full-time member in 1994.

Overall they're recorded eight studios, beginning with their self-titled debut in 1991. Black Sunday (1993) remains Cyprss Hill's bestselling album. It contains the Top 20 hit, "Insane in the Membrane."
