audio ‘stache: Big B Strikes Gold With New Album

Big B’s latest album Fools Gold features collaborations with The Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid, P!NK, Butch Walker, and many more.  

big b fools goldJuly 9th marks the release date for Fool’s Gold, the latest album by Las Vegas-based singer/rapper Big B. Released on Suburban Noize Records, the album features appearances from Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid, and many others. It is currently streaming on MSN.com and on last.fm.

For Fool’s Gold, Big B‘s sixth studio album, he is upping the ante by delivering his most heartfelt album yet.  

“I put a lot of heart and soul into this record and the last few years have been pretty hard on me for various reasons,” he says. “This record was my way of getting it all out and turning it all into a positive thing. I just wanted to make good songs that people can have a good time listening to. “

Fool’s Gold features musical collaborations with members of legendary punk outfits NOFX and Pennywise, as well as a songwriting collaboration with Grammy winner Pink on the single “Here Comes the Lightning.” The end result is a collection of songs that are just as contagious as Big B‘s thuggish charm. With the entire music industry focused on finding the next huge star on reality television, Big B has taken a back-to-basics approach on “Fool’s Gold” and filled it with fun spirited songs that can fit into any music lover’s playlist. The album is rich is musical diversity and is cleverly inventive, as Big B seamlessly bridges the gap between rock, hip-hop, and alternative.

 Big B is currently on the road as part of the Cabin By the Sea tour with Dirty Heads and The Expendables. From there, he will embark on Redlight King’s “Ones to Watch” tour, which will run through August. Tour dates can be found below.

buzz ‘stache: KOTTONMOUTH KINGS Reunite with Saint Dog

Saint Dog, the original emcee who appeared on the group’s debut album and spit his lispy rhymes on classic songs such as “Suburban Life” and “Bump”

Saint Dog recorded the explosive new track “Judgment Day,” which sees him ripping it up with the Kings for the first time since 1998’s Royal Highness. This will mark the release of the group’s thirteenth studio album, Mile High (out August 14th).

“D-Loc had a song idea and thought it would be cool to get Saint Dog on it. We flew Saint out from Minnesota and just started vibing on music together and reviving that musical chemistry we had together,” commented Brad X. “We initially just went in to record just the one track, but once we got in the studio together we just started banging out songs and came out with six new songs. I think it was really therapeutic for all of us and it was a great creative spark on this record.”

While in the studio for Mile High, The Kings own Johnny Richter recorded a new solo track titled “Good Pot 2.”  The track is online for fans to listen to as they anxiously await the full album from The Kings.  Check out the song here.

To celebrate the release of their most potent album to date, the Kottonmouth Kings are taking their mind bending brand of rip-hop on the road for one of the most anticipated underground packages this year, The Mile High Tour. The Kings enlisted horror master Prozak, underground heavyweight Big B, and country hip-hop misfits the Moonshine Bandits.  See below for dates.
