Biography

Suicide Kings are a Calgary based hip hop group who's MC “Joey Knuckles” is an American citizen born and raised in Detroit Michigan but now living in Canada. Since their conception in 2010 the Kings have been hard at work recording, touring western Canada and releasing independent records on their own with no help from record labels thus far. The Kings stay busy building a strong fan-base in Calgary as well as surrounding areas by opening for many of the heavy hitters that tour through Canada such as Mobb Deep, La Coka Nostra, Madchild, M.O.P, Inspectah Deck, Tech Nine and more. After a cross Canada tour supporting underground hip hop legends Apathy (CT, USA) & Celph Titled (FL, USA), the 2 groups combined and shot a video for the Kings single "Shotcallaz".

Combining two country's influences (King Cole - producer - Canada) and (Joey Knuckles - MC - USA) gives Suicide Kings a large spectrum of influential music that comes through in their songs.

With the recent release of their sophomore record “Crown of Thorns” (that features appearances from such rappers such as HBO Entourage star and recording artist “Saigon” along with legendary rap duo M.O.P) the Kings will embark on a cross Canada tour with Canadian rap sensation "Snak the Ripper" in October.
