Kottonmouth Kings

Kottonmouth Kings

Self-described "psychedelic hip-hop punk rock" outfit the Kottonmouth Kings emerged from Orange County, CA, in 1994. Comprising former Humble Gods frontman Brad Daddy X, rappers Saint Vicious and D-Loc, DJ Bobby B, and "visual assassin" Pakelika, the group first attracted attention with the track "Suburban Life," which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Scream 2 and became a modern rock radio hit. After issuing an EP, Stoners Reeking Havoc, on their own Suburban Noize label in early 1998, the Kottonmouth Kings released the full-length Royal Highness on Capitol that summer. Hidden Stash followed a year later, and their third album, High Society, pushed them into the mainstream. Gigs with D12 and Bionic Jive followed in fall 2001, just prior to the release of Hidden Stash, Vol. 2 : Kream of the Krop. A fifth studio album, Rollin' Stoned, which was produced by Brad X, appeared in October 2002. The self-explanatory Classic Hits Live hit the streets in 2003 while the band continued their expansion of the Suburban Noize empire, putting out DVDs and CDs by rappers and punk bands. Their 2004 release, Fire It Up, came out on the stoner's holiday, 4/20. The Kings returned in 2005 with their seventh album, a self-titled effort that featured guest shots from like-minded pals like Cypress Hill and Tech Nine. Unfortunately, the combo was forced to postpone their summer tour when D-Loc sustained a foot injury. Koast II Koast became the band's eighth studio full-length in June of 2006. The compilation Hidden Stash III appeared at the end of the year with a new album, Cloud Nine, arriving in 2007. Their 2010 album Long Live the Kottonmouth Kings was released on the stoner's holiday of 4/20.  - All Music Guide
