Logo #121: Cypress Hill

Designed by Dante Ariola and Mike Miller for Cypress Hill's 1991 Columbia Records debut. South Gate, home base for the hip-hop fusion band, also has a fairly active punk rock scene, centered around the remains of the Allen Theatre. Regardless! The Cypress Hill "joint" "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That" will see you through times that ordinarily may present themselves as humiliating, prideless and base. Yes, the lyrics are outwardly just about smokin' lotsa dope - with the shooting, and the killing, and the revenging - but just think of it as a metaphor. What's a metaphor? For making you think, of course.
