The Scene: As Cypress Hill took the stage to perform their second song of the night, “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That,” all seemed to be going smoothly at first – that is until DJ Muggs lit up a joint on stage (Kids, if you don’t know what a joint is, go ask mommy or daddy.

Why was it was rock ’n’ roll? Because a rap group went all Pete Townshend on their instruments.
