BLACK SUNDAYCypress Hill (Ruffhouse/Columbia 53931)Looking for a nice, socially conscious rap album? Then don't look to Cypress Hill. It isn't just the polysyllabic profanities sprinkled throughout "Black Sunday," so much as the album's obsession with drugs and violence. Not that these guys see anything wrong; if anything, they openly celebrate their subjects, happily chanting "I Wanna Get High" on "Hits from the Bong" while reminding listeners to "Cock the Hammer" when keeping a "Hand on the Glock."

Rap music has established itself as a cultural phenomenon, accounting for billions of dollars in record sales and influencing everything from fashion to advertising to television sitcoms. But fans of the music often find it difficult to see their favorites in concert.The major reason: Concern for audience safety on the part of promoters and insurance companies, based on a history of violence at shows. But the publisher and the editor of a national hip-hop magazine believe they may have found a way around the security problems that have plagued so many rap tours: a pay-per-view concert.

III (Temples of Boom)Cypress Hill (Ruffhouse/Columbia 669910)However much the title suggests bass-driven party music, there's little fun to be had with Cypress Hill's new album, "III (Temples of Boom)." It isn't just that the lean, ominous rhythm tracks are more hypnotic than celebratory; there's also an aura of evil to the raps, as the group takes a brutal, unblinking look at the empty lives and meaningless violence of urban drug culture. Rather than take the establishment view and argue against dope, Cypress Hill opens the album with "Spark Another Owl," which actively revels in the pleasures of getting high.

Stop me if you've heard this one: Tonight, cable has more interesting stuff to watch than broadcast TV. I knew you'd stop me -- but hey, it's not my fault. During rerun season, deja vu is hard to avoid.* "The Goodwill Games" (1 p.m.-2 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13; 8:05 p.m.-12:05 a.m., TBS) -- From today until Aug. 7, Ted Turner's third consecutive Goodwill Games will be held. Launched as an alternative to the Olympics and broadcast from St. Petersburg, Russia, these games have a slightly different tone now that the Cold War has thawed.

The history of hip-hop at the movies is not pretty.While hip-hop culture has often been used effectively to push the narrative of a drama -- "Menace II Society," for example -- it has been less successful as the subject of a movie itself. "Wild Style," from the early '80s, was a standout, and now so is "Rhyme and Reason," a documentary from Peter Spirer, a 1994 Oscar nominee for his short subject, "Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann."Allowing two generations of hip-hop heavies -- from Kurtis Blow, Chuck D, KRS-One, Dr. Dre and Heavy D representing the old school, to the Fugees, Mack 10, Cypress Hill, and MC Eiht in the new -- to talk while dealing with such issues as violence, sexism and the West Coast/East Coast rap feud, "R&R" is a wide-ranging look at why hip-hop has become the voice of young urban America.
