Chuck D, RBX On-Hand for Onyx/Cypress Hill Verzuz

Chuck D, RBX On-Hand for Onyx/Cypress Hill Verzuz

Cypress Hill and Onyx faced off in Sunday’s (May 15) Verzuz at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles as part of Triller’s Fight Club; which featured fighters Sergey Kovalev, Vargas Dynasty and Evan Holyfield. After the coin toss, Cypress Hill went first with “When The Shit Goes Down,” for an energetic and receptive audience. Backed with a live drummer, Cypress ripped through classics like "Cock The Hammer," while Onyx hit back with “Throw Ya Gunz” and “Shifty." “

A To The K”, “Dr. Green Thumb”,” Hand On The Pump” and “Kill A Man” were performed to great effect and the live instrumentation definitely gave those classics even more boom. “Insane In The Brain” brought the house down, as expected.

“Judgement Night”, “Last Days” and “Shut ‘Em Down’ were strong performers for Onyx, who laid claim to being the originators of meshing “slam dancing” with Hip-Hop, before they brought the place down with “Slam.” B-Real cleverly threw in a rebuttal that the Beastie Boys were likely the originators of the slam/Hip-Hop combination.

After the battle, both crews converged on the backstage area where the head-to-head competition turned into a show of respect as the crews intermingled with each other while celebs like Chuck D, RBX, Tash From Tha Liks and Hus Kingpin, E.D.I. Mean from Tha Outlawz and more pulled up. The night was an overall clinic on how to turn a Hip-Hop show into a rock show and while the theme of the night was fight music the only knockouts took place in the boxing ring after the two Hip-Hop titans cleared the stage. Hip-Hop won. Hopefully, Triller will return the format to a free watch for viewers, but until they do, be sure to follow your friendly neighborhood plug, Rock The Bells.
