|Cypress Hill chronology|
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 and on August 14, 2012 on vinyl. It debuted at number 50 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
The EP produced two singles, "Roll It, Light It" 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."
