Cypress x Rusko is a collaborative extended play by American hip hop group Cypress Hill and British dubstep producer Rusko. The five track album was released on June 5, 2012 digitally[1] and on August 14, 2012 on vinyl.[2] It debuted at number 50 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[3]

The EP produced two singles, "Roll It, Light It"[4] and "Can't Keep Me Down" which features Damian Marley. On the amalgamation of the two styles of music, Sen Dog of Cypress Hill explains "I think dubstep is a natural progression of hip-hop... Especially the way that we formulated it with Rusko. There's definitely some roughness to it."[5]
