After over a decade of performing and recording as a member of the Kottonmouth Kings, notorious MC Johnny Richter has gone solo! Richter is ready to give fans their first taste of his new solo material with the release of ‘FreeKING Out’, which drops in December via Suburban Noize Records. Richter will celebrate the release of the album by hitting the road for his first headlining tour throughout December with support from California hip-hop head Sozay.
“Over the past two years, there was a lot of drama in my life and I wasn’t happy with where I was. I started to look at things and the reason I wasn’t happy is because I wasn’t making music or playing shows. I needed to get back to basics by cutting out the all of the negativity, so I could focus on creating music again,” said Richter. “The music and the fans have always been the most important thing to me; I don’t give a shit about all the drama or getting involved in internet wars. I just want to make some banging music for the fans and get back to rocking shows around the globe.”
After breaking away from his former cohorts, Richter set up shop at DJ MUGGS’ legendary MGS Sound Lab Studios in Burbank, CA to record some smoking new solo joints. Under the watchful eye of the Soul Assassins producer and engineer G-ROCKA, Richter unloaded some truly ferocious rhymes when unleashed in the studio. Drawing from a palette of good, bad, and ugly personal experiences, Richter is in full attack mode on the “FreeKING Out” EP.
Now Richter is back and firmly focused on his solo career with the release of his new EP and upcoming headlining tour. Without anyone holding him back, Richter is completely loaded up with deadly rhymes that will ensure fans are “FreeKING Out”.
