Hidden Stash II: The Kream of the Krop is the fourth release from Orange County, California, rappers Kottonmouth Kings released on October 9, 2001.[2] The foundation had been laid down the sounds that the Kings would go on to explore more fully on their next album, Rollin' Stoned. As of the week of October 27, 2001, the album peaked at #100 on the Billboard 200.[3]

While the album title refers to Hidden Stash, the Kings' post-Royal Highness collection of b-sides, rarities, and remixes, the album itself is a regular studio album. The only song on Hidden Stash, Vol. 2 that had been previously released was "My Mind's Playin' Tricks on Me," a Geto Boys cover version that was recorded for the compilation album Take A Bite Outta Rhyme.

On September 15, 2009, Hidden Stash II was re-issued with the Dopeumentary DVD as Double Dose V3, the third and final double dose set.
