Till Death Do Us Part is the seventh studio album by the Latino rap group Cypress Hill. This album showed Cypress Hill experiment with a reggae sound - especially in the lead single; "What's Your Number?" that sampled the bass line from The Clash song "The Guns of Brixton." Another song, "Ganja Bus" features vocals from Damian Marley (son of Bob Marley).

Two different CD covers (artwork) exist: The European and Japanese releases feature the standard sepia version of a picture of a statue of a crucifixion scene. The US CD version includes a free sticker which is a black and white cover with the "old" logo on it. It has a square of thorns and roses around it. This is removable and inserted over the regular cover.
