Prior to the release of “The Smoke Out” Los Marijuanos was engulfed in a huge controversy with rap trio Cypress Hill.

Apparently west coast rap group Cypress Hill along with Jane’s Addiction, Deftones, Downset. and Everlast had formed a supergroup using the name Los Marijuanos. This prompted Wicked Entertainment to send all parties including Paul Rosenberg, manager of Cypress Hill & Eminem a “friendly cease-and-desist letter stating that the group has recorded under this name since 1998, and that they would appreciate it if the California collective would come together under another name.

They released a total of six albums.
