Is there a more appropriate way to mark the occasion of April 20 than listening to the man who crafted the highly influential sonic template behind the ultra-stoned, platinum-selling hip-hop pioneers Cypress Hill? Together, B Real, Sen Dog and DJ Muggs created a sound unlike anything else.

If you haven't put on "Black Sunday" since 1993 or so (or if you were, uh, born in 1993 or so), go back and give that album a spin and appreciate Muggs' brilliant production — the hazy, eerie atmospherics, the blunted beats, the choice samples, the overall vibe that veers between scary and delirious. It holds up as well or better than any of the other great hip-hop records from that storied year.

Of course, Muggs also made other classic albums, e.g. "Soul Assassins," his critically acclaimed album "Dust" and "Grandmasters," his collaboration with GZA, among many others.

Seriously folks, one of the all-time greats of hip-hop is in town on 4/20. Plus, there'll be all the usual late-night Disco good times as well.
