'Kottonmouth Kings' Lead Singer


5/2/2011 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daddy X -- lead singer of the band Kottonmouth Kings -- is recovering from surgery today after being stabbed in the neck.

So far, the details surrounding the stabbing are unclear ... but after the surgery, Daddy -- real name Brad Xavier -- posted a message to his fans saying, "Surgery went major arteries...thanks for the love and some pain meds and in recovery!!" 

A rep for the band was unable to comment -- telling TMZ he was still trying to gather information.

Had never heard of them so went and checked them out. Not my style of music but not so bad nevertheless. A little too much bragging about how much dope they smoke, but we all go through that when we're young.

Since this entire band is about smoking weed and partying, but Brad X is sober and about Money. I've always wondered if the band is a front to sell drugs that they supply at there gigs? Could this have been a drug deal gone wrong or they were stepping on the toes of the local drug dealers? There music is alright at best, so I always thought they were making back-ends through selling Chronic?

Daddy X is not the lead, not a back up. He is equal to the rest.. The group is one. If you knew anything you'd know that he actually owns the label along side Kevin Zinger. KmK wouldn't be anywhere with out Daddy X.

@stretchnutzthejuggalo im a proud juggalo, but you are making us all look stupid. dont go onto public domain sights and talk like that.

next order of business, how could someone stab Daddy X he is a pacifist for god sake. the dude is one of my heros and needs to get better. and whoever said he isnt lead singer yes he is. he is the only singer, the rest of em rap.

poor dude didnt deserve it much love goes out to him and his family
