Kottonmouth Kings – Royal Highness

Kottonmouth Kings
Royal Highness
Suburban Noize/Capitol

It’s 4/20 so that means Kottonmouth Kings and lots of ‘em. Did you ever see that movie Alpha Dog? This record is kind of like an audio interpretation of that movie’s Orange County lowlifes.

Royal Highness was the Kings’ first major label album and “Bump”, the album’s hit single, was featured on the Scream 2 soundtrack. Saint Dog is featured prominently on Royal Highness. These days, Saint Dog and his brother are a hip-hop duo on Suburban Noize. Listen carefully and you’ll hear remnants of Brad Daddy X’s pre-Kottonmouth Kings punk band the Humble Gods. This is the album for people who wish rap had more of a punk influence.
