Biography

Detroit, United States (1989 – present)

Insane Clown Posse is an American duo from Detroit, Michigan. The group is composed of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler, who perform under the respective personas of the “wicked clowns” Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Insane Clown Posse perform a style of hardcore hip hop known as and is known for its elaborate live performances. The duo has earned two platinum and three gold albums. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the entire catalog of the group has sold 6.5 million units in the United States and Canada as of April 2007.

Originally formed in 1989 as Inner City Posse, the group introduced supernatural- and horror-themed lyrics as a means of distinguishing itself stylistically. The duo founded the independent record label Psychopathic Records with Alex Abbiss as manager, and produced and starred in the feature films Big Money Hustlas and Big Money Rustlas. They formed their own professional wrestling federation, Juggalo Championship Wrestling, and later collaborated with many well-known hip hop and rock musicians.

The songs of Insane Clown Posse center thematically on the mythology of the Dark Carnival, which the duo claim is a spiritual force that has revealed a series of stories known as Joker’s Cards. These stories each offer a specific lesson designed to change the “evil ways” of listeners before “the end consumes us all.” Insane Clown Posse has a dedicated following, often referred to by the group as Juggalos and Juggalettes.

    Once I put one of their songs to my friend and didnt show how they look like or their MV and he was like "Yea this is not bad" And when I showed him how they look like and MV's he was like "whaaaa they suck man." I dont hate or like this duo but its just sad how people create wrong image of group just by visuals. Same goes for Slipknot etc.

    There are juggalos that are laid back, which are generally good people to be around but other juggalos could be violent. It's mostly the violent ones that make the juggalo community look bad.

    I know that juggalos are not viewed very favorably by most of society, but I do think it's cool that these two individuals (Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler) were able to create something that eventually came to have a really huge following. [1]

    At least ICP does have some decent songs that are not completely mindless.[2] E.g "Vera Lee." Deep for ICP. Not your typical ICP song.

    Brokencyde and Blood on the Dancefloor are worse. At least ICP does have some decent songs that are not completely mindless.
