“Bobo Facts” with Eric Bobo of Cypress Hill

Published

This song from THE PSYCHO REALM has always been one of my favorites from them. I have mentioned before about how great the making of this record was. This particular song was one of the first songs that I recorded percussion for the album. I played the Djembe, which is a drum from Senegal. I’ve always loved to play the djembe because of its natural bass sound that to me is like a natural 808 drum sound. What I liked was Sick Jacken really wanting to use the percussion on the tracks to give it a live feel. I truly believe that this was the first hip hop album to feature the djembe. You can really notice it on the breakdown in this song.
I also used the djembe with the Beastie Boys but that was more in a full band setting.
Enjoy!!
