The past couple of days, my iPod has been picking a lot of Muggs-produced joints when in shuffle mode--I for sure ain't mad at that. Dude was incredible, not just on the Cypress Hill albums (that first Cypress album still knocks my head sideways), but the shit he did for Cube on The Predator, plus the joints he did for the rest of the Soul Assassins. He had a great knack for putting samples together, picking loops, and doing a call-and-response thing (the "Sexy Coffee Pot" bassline/"Humpin'" guitar lick interchange on "Real Estate" sounds like it's just a loop off one record), and he could program the hell out of an SP-1200. Tremendous beats for days.

Always liked this version better than the "The Message" remix. Muggs did a great job with that Sweet Inspirations sample.
Ofcourse we know who was number one! :(
Christopher Walken = GOAT
Luh me most of the Cypress catalog, even riding for most of Temples of Boom and parts of IV, although I have not revisited either in over a decade. Not so much up on the other Soul Assassins stuff though, and am enjoying the stuff in this thread I didn't know he produced.
this is great.
