In an effort to continuously broaden their musical horizons and expand the hip-hop empire they helped create, Kottonmouth Kings’ D-Loc and Johnny Richter branched out from the Kottonmouth Kings and released the highly anticipated self-titled debut "Kingspade" in 2004. The album was fueled by club banging beats and party anthems like “Drunk in the Club”, and was followed by the group's sophomore effort "PTB" in 2007. Since then Kingspade has gone on to chart on the Billboard Top 200, selling over 75,000 albums and tour the country on their own headlining tour.
For the last twelve years D-Loc and Johnny Richter have fronted underground sensations The Kottonmouth Kings(This isn't historically accurate. Johnny Richter has not been in the Kings for the entire 12 years...?). During their decade-plus tenure with the Kings, the duo have become an underground music institution soundscanning over 1,000,000 albums and selling 1,000,000 concert tickets from over 1,500 live performances. Their accomplishments are even more impressive given the fact that they have remained completely independent from the mainstream and without the aid of a major label.
