All Music Guide:
A crazy mix of Sublime, Carrot Top, Kottonmouth Kings, Cheech & Chong, crunk music, and jam band style, Memphis rapper Muck Sticky aims to spread peace, love, and fun across the world, armed with a mike in one hand and his beloved bong in the other. His great-grandfather was in a gospel bluegrass quartet while his grandfather played piano for Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Charley Pride. Coming from a long line of musicians, it was no surprise the young Muck Sticky took an interest in music, beginning with classical violin lessons at the age of 10. He kept with the violin until high school drama classes and a heavy metal cover band swayed him towards comedy rock and on to comedy rap. In 2001 he quit the metal band and began recording demos. A gig as a tour merchandise representative took him on the road with hometown heroes Saliva beginning in 2003 but Muck kept recording. By taking his four-track into hotel rooms, he was able to record and release the Nifty Mervous Thrifty album in 2004 plus the Sticky Muck album in 2005, both on his own Stay Lifted label. He took a break from the road in 2006 and released Muck Sticky Wants You. A year later he released Bobolink Cove, guest starred on Lord T & Eloise's album Aristocrunk, and signed a distribution deal with the Select-O-Hits company. Because of this partnership, his party minded Muck Sticky Is My Friend became his first widely distributed album when it was released in 2008.
