Cypress Hill has shared the stage with many performers over the years.

But this was different, for a couple of reasons.

First, frontmen B-Real and Sen Dog were joined by Rusko, a 27-year-old English dubstep DJ and Cypress Hill collaborator. Second, they were being interviewed by Lakers forward Metta World Peace at the Lakers practice gym.

B-Real, a Los Angeles fixture and a Lakers season-ticket holder since the team moved into Staples Center in 1999, has sold millions of albums and traveled all over the world. He's counted former Lakers Shaquille O'Neal and Lamar Odom as friends. But this was a new experience.

"It's the first time I've been at the practice facility," B-Real said. "It was a cool experience to see these guys warm it up and shoot it around."

World Peace and B-Real have worked together in the past, on World Peace's song, "Go Loco." So when the time came for Cypress Hill to discuss the new project, an EP called "Cypress X Rusko," World Peace suggested he do the interview.

B-Real said experimenting with dubstep follows the path the band has blazed (pun intended) for the past 20 years.

"During the course of our career, we've always managed to go outside of even our own box," he said. "We started experimenting with the heavier sound, with live instruments and rock. We like to challenge ourselves."

The Rusko pairing came almost as a direct result of Cypress' fans.
