Detroit, United States (1998 – present)

Dark Lotus is an American supergroup based in Detroit, Michigan. Formed in 1998, the group consists of Psychopathic Records-associated rappers Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler of Insane Clown Posse, Jamie Spaniolo and Paul Methric of Twiztid, and Blaze Ya Dead Homie.

Dark Lotus made its debut with the single “Echo Side”, which was later released on Insane Clown Posse’s 1999 album The Amazing Jeckel Brothers. It was later announced that each member “would act as a ‘petal’ of the lotus,” and that there would be six members. After speculation as to who the sixth member would be, including rumors that Esham would join the group, it was announced that Marz would be a member.

Dark Lotus released their first album, Tales from the Lotus Pod, in 2001. Mike E. Clark was brought in to produce the album, but left the project after producing four songs, and Fritz the Cat produced the rest of the album. The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #6 on the Top Independent Albums chart, and #158 on the Billboard 200. Marz left the group, and was replaced by James Lowery. In 2002, Tales from the Lotus Pod was reissued in a new version removing Marz’ vocals. On April 6, 2004, Dark Lotus released their second studio album, Black Rain. It peaked at #3 on the Top Independent Albums chart, and at #71 on the Billboard 200.

    "Psycho Klown" just called someone - who obviously doesn't like this - a "juggahoe"? I've been going around reading your comments "Psycho Klown", and you're so stupid, and impressionable, it's ineffable. <-- Ho, look at that, better rhyme by accident than 98% of Dark Lotus's.. "STDs steady spreadin'. Bareback up in this neden. I don't care." -Dark Lotus
