Thank you for taking the time to get know us here at Stockton Music Group. Your time is appreciated. I would like to introduce to you, the NEW and INNOVATIVE sound in South Texas. I give you; The Northern Kings!!!

Formed during the summer of 2008, this duo has been working together since 2007. With J.Stokes as the Producer and Theory as the Artist. Theory quickly adapted to J.Stokes' style of production and after many months of questioning a collaborative effort album, they decided to join forces. The result? A sound so new and different from any other Hip-Hop artists or groups in South Texas. They call it.... Rhythm and Hop. A result of both of their styles seamlessly blended and cooked up for a revolution in music.

Bobby Porter aka "Theory"
First captivated by hip-hop in the mid 80's and then led to the art of spoken word in the early 90's, this Midwestern native was born and raised on the Westside of Chicago. Theory spent his time in the streets, where he earned his stripes in life. He also learned some hard lessons after being convicted of a felony at an early age and serving several years in prison. The result of such a lesson has made him into a person who fully understands "decision"..."consequence".
Theory, when delivering his lyrics to the public, states that he "sounds like no one, but speaks for everyone". Formerly a part of Still Starvin Records, Theory has made numerous appearances on mix tapes and in showcases in the Chicagoland area.
Now relocated in San Antonio, TX, he is ready to shake things up and pursue his dream in music and achieving greatness.

Jonathan Stockton aka "J.Stokes"
Fresh from Seattle,WA by way of Portland,OR, this Pacific Northwestern native prides himself on being a father first. Due to his adverse feelings toward sleep, he is a self proclaimed proud insomniac with multiple personalities. One playing Producer (J.Stokes)
and the other being all business (Jonathan Stockton). Though he loves hip hop, he claims his "soul belongs to r&b". He states, "the less equipment you have, the more creative you are required to be".
But even with minimal equipment, J.Stokes' ability to seamlessly blend R&B hooks over some of the most gritty hip hop tracks is making other south texas producers cry foul. While Jonathan Stockton is a highly ambitious entreprenuer with infectious and contagious energy and incomparable drive. After spending a year with Tejas Records as an engineer and soaking up knowledge on the business , he is determined to guide his label into his "Ultimate Vision" and ultimately achieve success and Victory.

Stockton Music Group aka "SMG"
Stockton Music Group was created in 2008 with the artist that has no desire to join the majors in mind. With plans to dominate entire regions, they bring a new sound which leaves most southerners puzzled because it sounds nothing like music from the southern states.
It's a tasteful mixture of breakbeat inspired tracks that are blended with soul infused r&b flavor. Alas.... Rhythm and Hop!
