Kottonmouth Kings are an American rap/rock group from the city of Placentia, California, or simply “P-Town” as the group refers to it in many of their songs. The Kottonmouth Kings officially formed in 1994, and describe themselves as “psychedelic hip-hop punk rock” but they’ve become iconic in the cannabis culture as a major stoner band with smoking marijuana the major theme in their music.
Kottonmouth Kings released their debut album, Royal Highness on Capitol Records in the summer of 1998. They began to gain mainstream success with the release of their third album, High Society in 2000, and toured with D12 and Bionic Jive in the fall of 2001. In 2006, Kottonmouth Kings headlined at the year’s Cannabis Cup and was named “Band of the Year” by High Times.
High Times sent a shout-out across the web “Should the Kings be brought back to Amsterdam? for the 2009 Cannabis Cup.
From February 24th – April 4th the Kottonmouth Kings are on the road for the “Bring tha Noize Tour” to promote the Green Album. Check out tour dates and order tickets on-line at their official website.
