The following feature appears in the October 2016 issue of NYLON.
On a sleepy, white-picket-fence-lined street in Southern California, a mother and father take their daughter out for a morning stroll, coffee mug in hand, blunt in mouth, goat on leash. Yes, goat. His name is Fred, and he’s been rented for the day to honor The Black Goat, aka Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs, their musical mentor and influence behind their new album, Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid. Like anywhere else they might show up, the South African rave-rappers look like they’ve just dropped down from Mars, or, as Ninja says about his partner, Yo-Landi Visser, “like something that fell out of heaven, got a little lost, and wound up in hell, unscathed.”
