Cottonmouth rapper Kings St Dog has passed away at the age of 44.

The musician, real name Stephen Thronson, was found early Wednesday morning in the bedroom of a friend’s home in Victorville, California.

The emergency services announced his death at the scene.

The death is not treated as suspicious, with an autopsy performed to determine the cause.

Kevin Zinger, CEO of Cottonmouth Kings Records “Anyone who knows Steve has seen how big his heart was,” Suburban Noise told TMZ.

Some of my fondest memories were of watching Steve stop the music in the middle of the Kottonmouth Kings show to bring a disabled wheelchair fan onto the stage so he could better see the show and even join in singing some songs.

This was just the kind of person that Steve was and touched a lot of people in a positive way.

“His legacy will continue in his music and our hearts with Son Max and all of his family, friends, and fans around the world.”

The Cottonmouth Kings was a hip-hop / punk trio formed in 1994, consisting of Saint Doug, De Luke and Johnny Richter.

He left the group in 1999 after three albums, but returned in 2015 for the group’s thirteenth release, Ganja Farm.

Their music has often been centered around smoking marijuana, and the band has been active in the debate about legalizing cannabis.

Tracks included Stoners Reeking Havoc, Royal Highness, and Stash Box.
