Hidden Stash is the first b-sides and rarities collection and second official album of the Kottonmouth Kings, released on October 26, 1999. [1] [2] Shortly after the release of previous album, Royal Highness , Saint Dog left the group to pursue a career with his brother Big Hoss, who, according to the song "Big Hoss," was in prison at the time Royal Highness was made. To replace him, they called in their old friend (and original Kottonmouth King) Johnny Richter, who was part of the group until 2013.

Kottonmouth Kings is an American hip hop group from Placentia, Orange County, California. The band officially formed in 1996, describing their eclectic sound as "psychedelic hip-hop punk rock". Kottonmouth Kings are composed of Daddy X, Lou Dog, D-Loc, DJ Bobby B, and newest member/ vocalist, The Dirtball. The group first attracted mainstream attention with the song "Suburban Life", which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Scream 2.

In a 2015 interview with Johnny Richter he stated that he was a member of the group but was not featured on it due to a personal issue with a member of the group at the time of the album's release date.

Saint Dog is an American singer. Originally from Chisholm, Minnesota, he was an original member of the Kottonmouth Kings along with D-Loc and Johnny Richter. Daddy X came shortly along after they already formed. He started his career as part of the hip hop group P.T.B. along with D-Loc and Johnny Richter. Daddy X had joined the group, and Johnny Richter had left for personal reasons. Johnny Richter was still a member when they where called the Cottonmouth Kings but sometime later the C was changed into a K. Before being called Kottonmouth Kings they where called the P-Town Ballers. He contributed to their first three releases before leaving to pursue a career with his brother, Big Hoss. A small feud between Saint Dog and the Kottonmouth Kings had started after the departure of Saint from the group, but quickly simmered down and soon after disappeared altogether. On November, 18th, 2016 Saint Dog announced he signed a deal with Force 5 Records, a label run by ex Primer 55 vocalist, The DRP, with a new album coming out in early 2017.
