Cypress Hill Perform With London Symphony Orchestra as The Simpsons Predicted 5

The Simpsons has once again predicted the future, as Cypress Hill finally performed with the London Symphony Orchestra.

The long-running Fox cartoon, in the classic season seven episode “Homerpalooza,” in a short scene depicted the California rappers collaborating with the LSO — a happy accident resulting from thinking they may have booked the orchestra while high. We then all-too-briefly see Cypress Hill and the LSO performing a classical version of “Insane in the Brain.”

On July 10, at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, life imitated art as Cypress Hill took the stage backed by the full LSO.

Dressed in suits, the group performed the Black Sunday album, their second studio LP which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year. The album, which was a huge commercial and critical success, topped the Billboard album charts in 1993 and has sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. alone.

Black Sunday contains many of Cypress Hill’s most well-known songs, and the group performed “I Wanna Get High,” “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That,” “When the Shit Goes Down,” “Lick a Shot” and of course “Insane in the Brain” with full orchestral accompaniment.

“It’s been something that we’ve talked about for many years since The Simpsons episode first aired,” Cypress Hill rapper B-Real told the BBC. “So it’s very special for us. And it’s coming off the heels of our 30th anniversary for our Black Sunday album.”

He added, “We’ve played a lot of historical venues throughout our career and stuff like that, but nothing as prestigious as this.”
