Cypress Hill's B-Real sponsors his own journalist-bailout program

With the hot, sweet scent of bankruptcy in the air, we here at P&H have deemed it prudent to learn some new, more practical skills than prognosticating Grammy picks. Fortunately, as is usually the case in our daily lives, Cypress Hill's B-Real is ready to swoop in and throw us a bone. At a forthcoming listening session this month for his debut solo album "Smoke N Mirrors," which drops in February, B-Real promises teach us the finer points of his second-favorite handicraft behind rapping.

B-Real will throw open the doors of his L.A. home studio with the album on repeat for our pleasure, but the invite promises "a unique tutorial from B-Real on 'How To Roll A Perfect Blunt': all materials will be provided by B-Real (Caution -- you will get high during this listening session -- either by choice or by the 'Bill Clinton' method)."

Um, sold! Consider yourself owned, Jada Yuan of New York magazine! Obviously we will attend and report back to you on all we learned. You know, for Journalism.
