To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Cypress Hill released their very own set of emojis.
New York-based company Emoji Fame created 100 Cypress Hill-themed emojis for fans. Not only do B-Real, Sen Dog and DJ Muggs all have individual face emojis, but there are all sorts of other options like lighters, skulls, lowriders, lyrics and more. Text blocks repurpose the group’s lyrics with clever traditional emojis. For example, there’s “Insane in the Brain” off their 1993 album Black Sunday, but instead of the word “brain,” there’s an emoji of one.
The app costs .99 and can be purchased from the iTunes App Store. It’s only available on iOS at the moment.
Besides offering fans a customized way to communicate, Cypress Hill will be releasing a “25th Anniversary Skull” of their self-titled 1991 debut album. The special edition album will come in a hard resin black skull, which recreates the group’s logo at the time, and includes a remastered audio CD and a 100-plus page hardcover book featuring extensive liner notes.
