Kottonmouth Kings (playing Summit Music Hall tonight with Kingspade) has been ruling its own corner of the musical stoner universe since 1994, carrying with it a fan base equally obsessed with weed culture. Coming up in the post-Sublime mid '90s, the Cali dudes easily found a niche market for their dirty smoke raps.
This year, the Kings released both an EP, Legalize It, and a new full-length, Sunrise Sessions, adding to the dozens of recordings already packed away in the group's discography. From the looks of it, Kottonmouth Kings could keep on for decades, as long as fans are around to pass it from the left-hand side.
