Home / Biography / Kingspade


Although they still draw from exactly the same California hardcore punk and Beastie Boys eclecticism as Orange County rap-metal outfit the Kottonmouth Kings, Johnny Richter (Tim McNutt) and D-Loc (Dustin Miller) splintered off to make a even more strictly rap group, Kingspade, in the first 2000s. Still an integral part of the Suburban Noize family members, Richter and D-Loc spit their stoner rhymes over beats with weighty Southern bass and G-funk party grooves rather than rap-rock fusion. Both knew one another as childhood close friends in Placentia, CA, method prior to the formation from the Kottonmouth Kings. Richter had not been an original person in Kottonmouth, but he previously been close friends with the complete music group. Richter became the official MC/vocalist with time for his or her second recording, Hidden Stash (1999), after another member departed. Richter and D-Loc debuted as Kingspade within the 6th Kottonmouth Kings LP, Open fire It Up, in 2004. Carving out a fresh group of fans from Suburban Noize’s cult pursuing, they released their eponymous full-length later on that August and came back in 2007 with PTB, an acronym for “P-Town (as with Placentia) Ballers.”
