New Artist: ICP, Insane Clown Posse.
My next new artist is ICP. It is just a shorter version of Insane Clown Posse. ICP was founded by Joe Bruce (Violent J) and Joseph Utsler (Shaggy 2 dope). They founded their group the early 90's. After releasing 6 albums also known as Joker Cards and dozens of underground albums, they are still reletively unheard of. No one thought that Violent J and Shaggy would not make it as a band. Their fans call themselves Juggalo's (for the guys) and Juggalette's (for the girls). But Being a Juggalo and a Juggalette is way more then just being a fan. Its more like a way of life. Although they paint their face like a clown would, they appreciate every fan that they have. ICP also calls themselves The Dark Carnival, Wicked Serial Killer Clowns, and Juggalos. They have many songs but a few of my favorites ar "Tilt-A-Whirl", "Juggalo Homies", "Hocus Pocus", " The Neden Game", "What is a Juggalo", And " Spin the Bottle". They are, I think, one of the most successful groups and not many people know who they are. So this is introducing you to the world of ICP. They formed the record company Psychopathic Records. They also talk about Faygo in most of their songs. Faygo is a soda similer to our Shasta. They also made Twizted ( Jamie Maddrox and Monoxide Child) who they are today. They just so happen to be in their van one day and hear a loud thump on the side of their van. When they get out they see two white faced boys. So they decided to take them in and they eventually became part of Dark Lotus. Dark Lotus is a group built up of all of Psychopathic's artists. Like Twizted ICP also uses the hatchet man. But they have also defined a new "hatchet man". For all the Juggalette's out there, there is the hatchet girl. She looks like the hatchet man but with a ponytail. This concludes my blog on ICP.
