INSANE CLOWN POSSE: A LOOK INSIDE THE TENT OF THE DARK CARNIVAL
When Insane Clown Posse emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit’s underground music scene in the early '90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the face painted duo’s hardcore, hip-hop style would bear on mainstream music.
Over the course of several Gold and Platinum albums, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have shared their Dark Carnival mythology with the world, through their lyrics which range from the philosophic to the humorous and through their over-the-top live performances (the Clowns' most infamous concert tradition: Dousing the crowd with hundreds of gallons of Faygo soda). The duo's millions of fans -- known as 'Juggalos' -- have become one of the most studied and talked-about musical subcultures of all time.
Many of their albums, including the Platinum-selling “The Great Milenko” and “The Amazing Jeckel Brothers” have become true classics of the horrorcore rap genre. Additionally, Insane Clown Posse's annual Gathering of the Juggalos has grown to become one of the world’s most eclectic and celebrated summer music festivals and was recently referred to by the New York Times as one of the only “authentic” music-based events in America. Their recent two-part album “The Marvelous Missing Link” opened at #2 on the Billboard Top 10 Rap Chart and to great critical acclaim. Their status as pop culture icons and fathers of America’s last true subculture was further cemented with the publication of the investigative book by noted music journalist Steve Miller, “Juggalo: Insane Clown Posse and the World They Created.”
ICP recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album “Riddle Box” with a highly successful tour of both the United States and Canada (the first time they’ve toured that country in more than a decade), performing the Juggalo classic album in its entirety.
Thanks to their bestselling albums, compilations, music videos, professional wrestling promotion (Juggalo Championship Wrestling), films, outrageous events, television shows (“Insane Clown Posse Theater”) and unprecedented merchandise success, Insane Clown Posse has smashed through the ceiling of the music industry’s expectations to create a bona fide entertainment empire that shows no signs of stopping.
