Biography

There has been a metamorphosis happening for the past few years with California based the Kottonmouth Kings. The group was injected with a new found creative firepower when they added Oregon based rapper the Dirtball to their ranks last year. Dirtball's versatile vocal delivery allows him to snap off rapid fire rhymes ala Twista, while his background as a drummer/musician allows him to ... Read more in Amazon's Kottonmouth Kings Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Kottonmouth Kings deliver a pure hit... July 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Those madcap Orange County rappers the Kottonmouth Kings are back with their latest release, "High Society". The Kings combine elements from several types of music with their free-flowing rhymes, most noticeably reggae and punk rock. One aspect of the Kottonmouth King's music which is unavoidable to discuss is, as their name and the title of this release implies, is their liberal use of marijuana. Practically every song is an ode to the herb (or a tirade against the government). Their views may alienate a large segment of the population, but then again, they may attract a larger following as well. If you can get past their pot smoking, the Kings are actually excellent rappers. Their rhetoric, whether meant to be or not, is just plain hilarious. It is most enjoyable when Brad Daddy X busts a rhyme, perhaps because his voice at times takes on a bizarre lilt that sounds as though he is insane, and the rhythmic interplay between X, Johnny Richter and D-Loc. locks in with the mesmeric turntable work of DJ Bobby B to create a perfect blend. The Kings also run with a talented, if somewhat disreputable, crowd. Guesting on the disc are those lovable fellows from the Insane Clown Posse; Sen Dog of Cypress Hill; Dog Boy (Too Rude), who provides the overall reggae flavor; and for the punk rock vibe, Jack Grisham of punk legends TSOL. Self-described as "slow and stony", the Kottonmouth Kings create a sonic landscape filled with spacy, funked-out beats balanced by hardcore rantings, yet the quandary remains if whether or not these guys should be taken seriously. They seem to be legitimate white-boy rappers, not the charlatans so prevalent today, but who else would have a song entitled "Peace Not Greed", about society's social ills, followed immediately by a track about the joys of winning the lottery ("The Lottery")?

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet October 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I got into the Kottonmouth Kings about a year ago. The first song I heard of their's was "Dog's Life", and since it sounded so much like Sublime (one of my favorite bands), I bought their first album.
Let me first say that I hate about 95% of rap. I've heard it all, underground rap, rock rap, pop rap, all the rap you can think of. Nothing against the people who like it, I just really can't stand much of it. But these guys can do it. I never thought I would like any group that had so many rap elements, but they changed my mind.
I do love punk rock though, and there is enough in KMK to keep me satisfied. Though there is no "Spies" on this album, there is still enough here. "Peace Not Greed" features Jack Grisham of TSOL singing "Abolish government...it's nothing to me...forget about God...he's not here to see..." As Daddy X said, "that's punk rock history right there."
Lots of KMK fans do not like this one because Saint left. Saint, okay, he was alright, but he was not the only thing good about Kottonmouth Kings early stuff. And as far as now, I think Johnny Richter absolutely blows him away. Saint's not forgotten, but he isn't missed, as far as I'm concerned. This album is much better than Royal Highness, which was a great album in itself.
The cool thing about KMK is each member brings something different. Brad Xavier ("Daddy X") is the punk rocker, the crazy guy. He's not as present in the songs as the other MCs, but he's still there. "D-Loc" (Dustin Miller) is the straight up rap guy. He's got a cool voice and writes great lyrics. Johnny Richter is the slow-tempo guy, he's got great flow and is laid back and trippy on most of the stuff here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kottonmouth Kings prove people wrong because...... August 13, 2000
By JaSoN..
Format:Audio CD
A lot of people, well, people I know, didn't think that the Kottonmouth Kings could pull something out as great as there debut full length album, "Royal Highness". But when there sophmore effort.. "High Society" hit the stands.. boy were they left amazed. Amazing is what this new album is in one word. Even though with the sad missing of Saint on the new album, Johnny Richter.. the original King Member does a fantastic job in replacement of Saint. "Royal Highness" was a great album in terms of bringing a fan following to them, which did. With barely any airplay from the radio or MTV. They didn't play [Bump], [Suburban Life] or [Dog's Life] as much as they should of been. But touring brought them a dedicated following of fans. Then, June 27, the release date of "High Society", an album with 20 new cuts, along with a powerful message from Corporate Avenger on [Anarchy Through Capitalism], and with there own DJ Bobby B with a special one and a half minute sample of his album, which is also a must for a kMk fan. THe new album featuring there first single release, [Peace Not Greed] really gets your blood pumping with the dope beats and the lyric ability of Richter, D-Loc, Daddy X.. and special guests Dog Boy and Corporate Avenger on the track. They are more hip-hop in this album, but who cares.. it's been greatly done. Most of it does include content on smoking weed, but who cares.. everyone does it.. well.. a lot of people do. Get over that. But tracks like [The Lottery], which will be there next single. [Crucial], [We the People], [Round & Round], [UnXplanetory], [Wickit Klowns], which features the Insane Clown Posse, [Coffee Shop], [First Class], the party bump, [Day Dreamin' Fazes]. Read more ›
