Hidden Stash II: The Kream of the Krop is the fourth release from Orange County, California, rappers Kottonmouth Kings released on October 9, 2001.[2] The foundation had been laid down the sounds that the Kings would go on to explore more fully on their next album, Rollin' Stoned; as of the week of October 27, 2001, the album peaked at #100 on the Billboard 200.[3]

While the album title refers to Hidden Stash, the Kings' post-Royal Highness collection of b-sides, rarities, and remixes, the album itself is a regular studio album; the only song on Hidden Stash, Vol. 2 that had been previously released was "My Mind's Playin' Tricks on Me," a Geto Boys cover version that was recorded for the compilation album Take A Bite Outta Rhyme.

On September 15, 2009, Hidden Stash II was re-issued with the Dopeumentary DVD as Double Dose V3, the third and final double dose set.
