Brad Daddy X founded the Kottonmouth Kings in 1994

Brad Daddy X founded the Kottonmouth Kings in 1994 after he meeting fellow rappers D-Loc and Johnny Richter. They all lived in Placentia, California.

Born on TK in Placentia (his last name is Xavier), Brad got his start in music as a member of the punk band Humble Gods, which also featured Pennywise's Jason Thirsk. A love for hip-hop led Brad to combine loud rock and laid-back rap in his next band. Saint Dog, Bobby B, Pakelika and Lou Dog rounded out the original group, whose first album, Royal Highness in 1998, established the Kottonmouth Kings as the new stoners on the block. Including EPs and live discs, they  have a total of 21 albums on Suburban Noize Records. The most recent was Mile HIgh in 2012.

Brad delivers the group's pro-pot message in raps and brief speeches during their shows. "Let me put it to you this way," he says. "When you go to Amsterdam, weed is legal and it's not an issue. Their society functions normally. People are out riding their bikes, living healthy - just a thriving society, and it's just not that big of a deal. Whether it's legal or illegal in America, don't kid yourself and think that millions of people [don't] enjoy smoking marijuana. That's just a fact. How could any man be arrogant enough to outlaw a plant?"

Upon his election as Top CelebStoner, Daddy X sent us the following message: "God's got ganja growing, smells so good to me. Ganja grows cuz Jah jah knows. Plant yourself a tree! Life is a gift. Thanks to all the peaceful loving people for spreading the good word and growing the good herb. Roll one up pass it around! Long live the Kings!!"

Brad is married to Anna Rose. They have a daughter, Sky Blue.
