History[edit]

Kingspade[edit]

Kingspade debuted with the track "The Adventures Of This" on the Subnoize Rats Compilation in 2003. One year later the Kottonmouth Kings' 6th full length album Fire It Up included two bonus tracks. One of these was a new Kingspade track entitled High Riders. On this track it was announced that a Kingspade album was to be released later that year.

The summer of 2004 had come and the highly anticipated Kingspade debut album was released. This album included the hits; Drunk in the Club and the previously released High Riders. Following this release came some touring until they started to work on the next Kottonmouth Kings album. Over the next few years not much was heard from Kingspade other than a few shows here and there.

In 2005, the Kottonmouth Kings released the album Joint Venture which featured 2 new Kingspade tracks. Also included was an advertisement stating that a new Kingspade album would be released June 2006. Promotion was also brought upon with in ad included in the Kottonmouth Kings fourteenth official album, Koast II Koast stating the release to come in the late summer of 2006. This information would later be known to be false. Nothing was heard of the album or Kingspade for months until the release of Kottonmouth Kings' Hidden Stash III which include a new Kingspade track entitled "Thats How It Goes". After a few more months had gone by it was announced that Kingspade would be performing on Kottonmouth Kings' The Joint Is On Fire Tour. It was also stated that Kingspade's second release, P.T.B., would be released on April 24, 2007.

Come April 24 sure enough P.T.B. was released and following its release, Kingspade headlined their own tour accompanied by California-natives 1Ton and UnderRated, who make up the music group Potluck.

Kingspade has recently finished their tour and has rejoined the Kottonmouth Kings in their tour known as the StrangeNoize Tour. This tour includes Tech N9ne, Hed PE, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, SubNoize Souljaz. Special appearances include the Insane Clown Posse, Cypress Hill and Ill Bill of La Coka Nostra. The tour has been done to celebrate the Kottonmouth Kings 9th full length album known as Cloud Nine. They had 3 tours in the state of Texas, in which they got into some trouble with authorities. D-loc would not give a lot of information on this topic, but Richter said this : " Me and D was just rhymin...after the show we headed out to the cars, not knowing that police would be waiting for us. One of the girls that were at the concert had gotten hit by the falling speaker me and D were playin with.
