On Aug 14, 2012 The Kottonmouth Kings released their most prolific and smashing record to date, "Mile High". It includes 18 certified bangers that will cement the Kottonmouth Kings legacy, as one of the most influential and underrated groups of our time. "Mile High" is the Kottonmouth Kings on steroids with a twist of ecstasy and a pot brownie! The sonics and bass alone on “Mile High” will blow speakers from coast to coast! So buy stock in speaker companies, if you need some investment tips. "Mile High" has the Kings passing the mic around like the Harlem Globetrotters pass a basketball. There is not a group on the planet that can rival what the Kottonmouth Kings have pulled off! “Mile High” will have music snobs down on their knees, wiping semen from their cheeks. You will find no traces of tight jeans or trendy indie trash!
The Kings are an independent music force! The Kings are seasoned vets ready to storm troop the music industry like Navy Seal Team 6 raiding Osama Bin Laden’s compound! The Kings are here to take no prisoners and make no apologies. The Kings have never stopped pounding and smashing for over 15 years. What other group of our generation has done more collectively and as a unit? What other group releases as much prolific solo and group material. It is high time to recognize that the Kottonmouth Kings are not some novelty weed act - but one of the most intensely original and profound groups of our generation. Don't take our word for it - go to a show and you will see thousands of people lose their fucking minds every time the Kings hit the stage.
It all started seventeen years ago, deep in the suburbs of Southern California, in the aftermath of a punk rock & hip hop revolution - an unlikely group of stoned misfits formed a musical partnership that would ignite an entire generation of weed loving, free thinking, bass bumping, rip hop junkies. KMK has become one of the worlds most radical and savagely independent underground musical forces. KMK is fine flying under the radar - the Kings have dug underground tunnels that most people don't even know exist. KMK is responsible for creating one of the most intense and largest subculture movements in modern times, as well as connected millions of Kings and Kweens worldwide. "Mile High" finds the Kings Flying high delivering lyrical gymnastics over a sonic sound-scape that defies anything else happening in music today!
“Mile High” also contains a deluxe bonus disc that contains all the original Kings: Saint, D-Loc, Richter, X, & The Dirtball, wrecking tracks all together again! This is history! Spread the good word! Fasten your seat belts and get ready for the flight! It's 2012 and the Kottonmouth Kings have their red eyes set on the future - so be prepared to blast off to whole new dimension. Go get your copy of“Mile High” now available worldwide.

Van Brando is a San Diego based Hip Hop & Metal / Hip Hop Emcee (MC/Rapper). Van Brando's style is unique not only to Daygo, but to SoCal (Southern California) as well. The scene has rarely been exposed to an Artist in the past 10 years who has an original approach to Hip Hop.
This all changed when Van Brando jumped on the scene. Imagine if Pantera, Slayer, System of a Down, Cradle of Filth and I See Stars were all in a raw musical orgy with Tech N9ne, Immortal Technique, Eminem, Beastie Boys, Hopsin and Necro. The result is not a messy room filled with money shots... It's an artistic display of borderline genius meets insanity.
In San Diego Van Brando is known as a screamer... Noooooo you sick bastards and confused Hip Hop lovers, not that type of screamer! The screaming Van Brando does, is a well balanced mix between the Underground Hip Hop culture, Metalcore culture and a Tarantino flick. Anytime an Artist can emerge in a flooded, convoluted and confused Underground Hip Hop scene and bring something new to the table... Fans can tell they've stumbled upon a rare gem.
If you're in Los Angeles (LA), Orange County (OC), San Diego (SD), Nova Scotia (CAN), Zambonia (AFR), Japan (JPN), Netherlands (NL) or somewhere on Sirius B... You can probably hear this dude ripping a mic right now if you listen carefully. Stars pass gas... Van Brando is essentially his own solar system of Hip Hop music fused with the hardcore stylings of a mad man. Van Brando is not looking to be the next star... He's looking to be your next inspiration!
"Shemrok Christ has survived a barrage of shortcomings throughout his life and career, never losing sight of his brainchild—even if that brainchild gets into the band’s stash at times. All debaucherous inclinations aside, Shemrok Christ is a lyricist, ripping up stages with rhymes spanning from drug addiction, vivid pop culture, unrequited love, and even conspiracy theory"

Navigating your way through the rap/hip hop music offered today can often be more tragic than triumphant. If you’re looking for new music to listen to, and love supporting independent artists then you’ve come across the right article.
If the Beastie Boys and Sleigh Bells had an illegitimate child, it would be King Shem. I like to describe his music as tripped out hip hop with a lo-fi rock sound. It doesn’t always fit a label, and you certainly can’t try to stuff it into a box. King Shem has been making music for years, starting off as part of the group Cooler Than Smack, then recording solo as King Shemrok Christ, all while managing his label DRC Records. He’s a little bit East coast, a little bit West coast, and constantly evolving. "
