Rage Against The Machine Joins Forces With Cypress Hill Rapper (And Cannabis Icon) B-Real

Rage Against The Machine is back - sort of.

Last week, a mysterious countdown clock appeared online (the site is here, but it crashes frequently due to traffic) indicating that a big announcement related to the iconic, politically-charged rock band is coming June 1st.

Now, Billboard reports that three-quarters of Rage Against The Machine - guitarist Tom Morello, drummer Brad Will, and bassist Tim Commerford - will join with Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill (and his online streaming channel breal.tv) to form a supergroup called Prophets of Rage. Original singer Zach de la Rocha will not be involved.

More details will follow, but it's worth noting that, as Spin reports, Prophets of Rage will apparently play songs by all three legendary bands. So it's entirely possible that we will hear Rage-ified versions of "Hits From The Bong" and other smoky Cypress Hill classics.

The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
