Richter, childhood buddy of D-Loc, was shipped around to six schools
and 2 rehabs before being sent off to boarding school at age 16.
Being a fan of
classic rock groups (like the Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, and Jimmy
Hendrix), this hard core stoner grew up singing along with anthems from
the 60’s and 70’s while also being a fan of music from his own
era. Switching from Run DMC to Tom Petty.. From Public Enemy to
the Beastie Boys, Santana, Janis Joplin..; this mixture and diversity
made for an unlimited spectrum of styles from the young MC.
into a whole new style on “Rollin’ Stoned”, He went from his stoner
roots, and mixed a little of the old school with the new school. "I was
just hanging out gettin high in my garage with the judge, and started
singin; and he was freaked on it, so I threw it on the album.
Dope-slanging street hustler who has a 5 foot iguana, he went from
moving pounds to moving units. Richter’s party pad, which was
used in the filming of KMK’s first video “Suburban Life”, had four kegs
on tap and two full size nitrous tanks in operation at all
of the Kings, in the early days Richter would still show up at local
KMK shows and bust old tunes like ‘Suburban Life’ and ‘So High’ with
them. “When I wasn’t with them, I still hung out with D-Loc,
that's my neighbor from grade school, my oldest dog. He was doing
his own thing and I was home keepin’ P-Town and parts of O.C. swimmin’
in nugs, just running my game.”
On his third
album back with the Kings, Richter solidifies his position and has
added a whole new element to the band.
