In October of 2000 Rage Against the Machine announced they have parted ways with their lead singer Zach De La Rocha, but the position of Rage singer may not be left vacant for much longer. Rumors have been floating around that B-Real of Los Angeles’ most famous pro-weed rap group Cypress Hill is interested in taking over the mic duties for Rage.
Cypress Hill has collaborated with Rage Against the Machine in the past, most recently at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles where the bands performed the Cypress Hill song "How I Could Just Kill a Man" together. This track is available on the first edition pressing of Rage’s new album of cover songs Renegades.
In an interview this past Sunday on Los Angeles hip-hop station Power 106’s Old School Show, B-Real told the show host, Jeff Garcia, that he is in fact interested in joining the group. He said that he would not try to copy Zach’s sound, but would continue with the politically charged and controversial style that Rage built their career around. There has been no official word from Rage Against the Machine, Epic records or the bands management about auditions for singers. AudioRevolution.com will keep you informed as more information about Rage’s future unfolds.
Cypress Hill's CD Live at the Fillmore and the DVD Still Smokin' are in stores now.
