Cypress Hill smoke ‘strong’ cigarette on Leeds Festival stage

Rappers ask crowd if they're high during Main Stage slot

Cypress Hill brought their weed anthems to Leeds Festival today (August 28), and smoked a large ‘cigarette’ during their Main Stage slot.

Rappers Sen Dog and B-Real plus turntablist Julio G played in the afternoon sun on the second day of the 2010 event, treating fans to their most famous song, ‘Insane In The Brain’.

“I gotta ask you a question – ‘cos it seems like you’ve been smoking,” B-Real said to the crowd before playing the song. “Are you motherfuckers high right now?”

Then, following ‘Insane In The Brain’, he sparked up an enormous cone-style hand-rolled ‘cigarette’, with the pair toking on it as they played a medley of spliff-related songs from their back catalogue.

Sen Dog then went down on his knees and mock-coughed, saying, “This shit is strong,” before they played ‘Dr Greenthumb’.

Following a solo spot on the decks from Julio G they ended their show with ‘Rock Superstar’.

Cypress Hill played:

‘Get ‘Em Up’
‘Hand On The Pump’
‘When The Shit Goes Down’
‘How I Could Just Kill A Man’
‘Latin Thugs’
‘Armada Latina’
‘Insane in the Brain’
