CYPRESS STILL: With Cypress Hill coming to town for a Universal Amphitheatre show next Sunday, word was coming in from the road that the hemped-up hip-hop trio was splitting.

Not true, says Cypress Hill manager Happy Walters.

The rap group Cypress Hill's latest homage to pot-smoking, "Black Sunday," is the area's biggest-selling album by far, debuting at the top of three of The Times' Southern California album charts--pop, R&B and rap. Being a hometown group, Cypress Hill was expected to do well locally. Its strength around the country--at No. 1 on all three of the national charts, too--was a surprise.
