Insane Clown Posse

So who are the Insane Clown Posse? There are so many ways to explain what this band is and what they are about. Whatever you hear is probably true, though. ICP is the most hated band in the world. They are the Godfathers of the Dark Carnival. They are heinous, obscene, and they are freaks. They are all of this and so much more.

Violent J: Violent J seems to be the speaker of the two of them, he can often be found online, and chats seem to surface a lot after he's been on. Violent J's first, and only, solo album was released mid 2003, titled Wizard of the Hood.

Shaggy 2 Dope: Shaggs has only done one solo album which was titled Fxck Off!! There has been talk though that he'll do a sequel solo album called Fuck the Fuck Off!!!

It all began in the late 80's when Joe Bruce and Joey Utsler (also known as Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope) began rapping in a gang called the Inner City Posse they had started with their Detroit homies. They released "Dogbeats". With it's mild success, ICP started throwing their name around the underground rap and gang scene of Detroit. They received a little noteriety but this did not prove to be a good thing. Other gangs that had been around for generations held resentment toward ICP. Much violence insued and needless to say most of the members of ICP bailed out in 2 years. Things looked pretty dim by the winter of 1990. Violent J spent that winter in jail.

Shortly after Violent J's release from jail him and Shaggy turned their lives around. They claim that late one night they were visited by spirits from a dark carnival. These spirits instructed them, and them only, to spread the message of the carnival in 6 messages. They were told that there were not to be any leaders in this venture, just believers. They were also told that out of the thousands that would hear the message only a select few would actually listen to it. And these few who did listen would be worth the effort 10 fold. Seeing as how the only form of media that ICP knew was music, they decided to spread the word of the Dark Carnival in 6 albums, the Jokers Cards. Thus, the era of the Insane Clown Posse began.

ICP has released 6 Jokers Cards to date. "Carnival of Carnage", "Ringmaster", "Riddlebox", "The Great Melinko", and "The Amazing Jeckle Brothers". The Wraith dropped November 5th, 2002.
