Kottonmouth Kings' Dirtball Streams "Nervous System" CD Online

From Kerosene Media:

Kottonmouth Kings' Dirtball Streams Entire "Nervous System" Album Online

The king of rapid fire rhyme, Dirtball is currently streaming his entire new solo album “Nervous System” online . Dirtball’s “Nervous System” will hit stores on March 1st, 2011 through Suburban Noize Records and will feature guest appearances by Psychopathic Records’ Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Big B, and Kottonmouth Kings’ alumni Johnny Richter and Daddy X.

“My new album, ‘Nervous System’, is my own chronic record. A diverse assault of volatile and infectious tracks, compiled to stand the test of time and skill,” commented Dirtball. “This is a record that lyrically, takes you on a journey through the life and times of the party. You can rock this sifted-down set of bangers anytime, anyplace....crank it!”

The Kottonmouth Kings’ own Dirtball is asking fans to join him on a journey through the complex, twisted psyche of his mind on his new solo album “Nervous System”. The album plays out like a twisted audio sequel to "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", as Dirtball uses his machinegun delivery to attack a collection of banging West Coast beats with monstrous results. Dirtball is joined on the album by Psychopathic Records’ Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Big B, and Kottonmouth Kings’ alumni Johnny Richter and Daddy X. “Nervous System” is currently available for pre-order online at
