As the first Latin Hip Hop group of note, Cypress Hill’s first two albums featured a slowed up groove with pounding basses that could almost be described as a Stoner Groove.  This sound proved to be influential on other Hip Hop artists that followed and their sound was a true alternative to other West Coast rappers.  The problem was that their later effort was substantially weaker almost to point of self-parody.  For Cypress Hill to have a realistic chance for induction, the amount of artists who cite them as influential will have to substantially increase.
