Stoned Raiders is the sixth studio album by American hip hop group Cypress Hill, released on December 4, 2001 by Columbia Records.

Background[edit]

This album is best known for its two singles: "Trouble" and "Lowrider". The song "Kronologik" also summarizes Cypress Hill's career from their debut in 1991 until the album was released. Many of its songs feature guest artists like MC Ren, King Tee, Redman and Method Man.

"Here Is Something You Can't Understand", is a sequel of their breakthrough single, "How I Could Just Kill a Man". "Lowrider" is also used on the British TV Series Soccer AM.

The album title was taken from the song of the same name from the group's third album Cypress Hill III: Temples of Boom, released in 1995.

  • Mixmag – 3 out of 5 – "They seem to be searching for new sounds and styles and this explains the multi-personality nature of the album way better than the ubiquitous chronic."[4]
  • Vibe – 3.5 discs out of 5 – "Cypress Hill proves that where there's blunt smoke, there's fire. The quartet's hip hop joints haven't been this potent in years."[5]
  • Kludge listed it as one of the 25 best albums of 2001.[6]
