Well, I’m sure by now everyone that visits this site knows about Kottonmouth Kings separation from Suburbannoize Records and all the beef that followed; from Taxman leaving the group, the business & money issues between Daddy X and Kevin Zinger (CEO & President of Subnoize & SRH clothing). I still don’t understand since KMK was suppose to be part business owners in all of this that they just straight split on the whole thing and are now saying, “Anyone wearing SRH merchandise, we take as disrespect to us”. Anyway the BIG BOMB of this whole matter just recently hit when Johnny Richter (which IMO is KMK’s best MC) decided it was time to part ways with the Kings because he was just sick & tired of, “all the drama”. Richter hooked back up with Subnoize and immediately announced an EP was coming out in a few weeks along with a tour to follow! His album, “FreeKING Out” (EP) was released Subnoize on December 17th. It was available digitally & you could buy a hard copy through the web-store and if you per-ordered it you could get some goodies with it. I bought the digital copy myself. Daddy X, which has been taken shots at everyone was quick to drop some hate on J. Richter the moment he departed, how peaceful and righteous of him, haha. Richter remained silent on the matter, just stating he was sick of the drama and needed out. For those who have been following everything too, Brawdcast, a rapper involved with the Subnoize crew released a track a few weeks ago entitled, “Shut Up”, it featured Grimace & UnderRated of Potluck. It’s nothing more than a straight diss track to D-Loc, it’s ruthless & personal (it’s not the greatest track but it’s funny & entertaining, especially since it’s free). Well, soon before Richter’s album was released D-Loc announced he was releasing a digital (only) album of his own, available through Kottonmouth’s website on December 25th (Christmas Day). The album entitled, “Bong Tokes & Loves Notes” (EP), I also purchased it since it was only $4.20. Which I was weary about because of how weak & repetitive Loc’s raps have gotten over the past few years.

Johnny Richter’s 2nd solo, “FreeKING Out” put out by Subnoize since “Laughing” in 2010. Now if your a fan of “Laughing” like I am, I think your gonna like this album. My feelings on it, I thought it was really good for his first release after leaving the Kottonmouth Kings & it’s only 4 bucks for 5 decent tracks. He was my favorite MC of KMK, from his raps, his harmonizing and his singing of like 90% of the choruses. But I also haven’t been crazy about a Kings album in a long time (but I don’t put that on Richter, it falls on all of them). Richter does take some shots on the album toward the KMK beef, but they are more subliminal than anything but you’ll pick up on them. I’m excited to see what JR has got in store for the future, hope he stays on the grind and gets a full length out by spring/summer time. Anyway, if ya like Richter, check out “FreeKING Out”! And support the artist & purchase it if ya can.

 D-Loc’s “Bong Tokes & Love Notes” released independently, digitally only through Kottonmouth’s website. Honestly I really didn’t want to buy this album cause I just feel D-Loc’s raps have gotten so weak over the past few years, I mean his solo, “Weedman” was a step in the right direction but as far as on KMK’s records he’s weak, sloppy & repetitive, and it’s especially noticeable beside Richter’s smooth raps & Dirtball tearing it up whenever he’s on the MIC. This album is D-Loc basically rapping about what Kottonmouth usually raps about and him taking shots at everyone that’s been hating on him & his crew. But I gotta say, Loc steps it up on this release, he raps that raspy rap that he had in his “High Society” & “Kream of the Krop” days and steps up his rhymes, flow & delivery. I must say I was impressed, so the EP is refreshing! But I still see Kottonmouth Kings as a whole as a sinking ship, it seems to me they should all just do solo records, especially Dirtball. Because I can already see it coming, they’re gonna add Saint Dog and release a big “Fuck You” album this summer and it will prolly sell less than “Mile High” did. For those that don’t know, they have not been doing good at all in the album sales department. And losing your #1 MC (IMO) and because of his ability to harmonize, sing choruses & his smooth raps, KMK is just looking worse to me. But anyway, Both “FreeKING Out” & “Bong Tokes & Love Notes” are solid EP’s I think, especially for the price. Oh and one more thing to add, this is just the beginning of the war to come.cool

LOL, finally an opinion! Even though I don’t agree with ya, I can see why you would say that. I thought for their price and what they were they were decent. I happen to be a big fan of Richter though. Even though I have felt like Kottonmouth lost it a few albums ago. That’s really were I see them going, their gonna add Saint and make a record basically dropping their whole “peace & love” motto and come firing at everyone, especially Subnoize’s Kevin Zinger, Potluck & Richter. This war is just starting. But I don’t think KMK’s sales are ever gonna go up, just gonna keep going down. Their glory days (if ya wanna call them that) are behind them.

Royal Highness and Rollin Stoned had some good tracks too…but otherwise I agree with you Billy.  Basically everything past No. 7 has blown sloppy chunks…

Yeah, they just kept going downhill… my two favs they ever did was rollin stoned and No. 7 and then Koast II Koast was where it all started, where they just started getting way to repetitive with their raps and a great deal of songs just seamed like recycled material. But I did like when Richter broke off and did his solo “Laughing”, I thought that was a good record, but that’s just me.
