The Green Album is the ninth studio album by Kottonmouth Kings. It was released on October 28, 2008 under Suburban Noize Records. The album peaked at #5 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart, and #42 on the Billboard 200. [4] As of August 1, 2012 The Green Album has sold over 325,000 copies in the US. AllMusic reviewer David Jeffries wrote that "If you haven't figured it out from the album's title, the song titles, or even the band's name, The Green Album is a pro-weed album from aging cottage industry insiders known as the Kottonmouth Kings. [...] [The album] finds them a bit more out of touch with what's happening in the rest of the music world." [1]
