Shit-hop hits the fans

 

Simply put, the ?Insane Clown Posse? really is a posse of
American hip-hop artists (or clowns) who are genuinely insane. One can
only assume they are attempting the ancient art of irony in using such
a selective term as ?insane[1]? in their group name, but the
subsequent antics of the group members proves the complete opposite,
and they are now synonymous with that of a mental illness. And that is
exactly how most intelligent people feel when subjecting their
auditory senses to the nonsensical lyrics and beats of ICP?s latest
album ? mentally ill. It?s a confusing and vicious cycle no one
can get their head around.

By blatantly numbing the ignorant minds of the masses with music they
consider to be thought-provoking and intelligent, in truth, these
clown faced (no pun intended) middle aged men ? and occasional
wrestlers ? spew out record after record with the hopes of
broadening their fan base into an army of powerful dedicated followers
who call themselves Juggalo?s that will eventually take over the
world. Not really. But the impression is remarkably evident, and
actions really do speak louder than words (or is it unintentional
non-sequiturs?). But behind this veil of ignorance, their over the top
image is nothing but a laugh off to hip-hop fans who have a higher
class in taste.

After finding worldwide notoriety with their debut album Carnival of
Carnage in 1992, Joseph ?Violent J? Bruce and Joseph ?Shaggy 2
Dope? Utsler have surprisingly managed to survive 18 years in the
music industry business. Their 11th release to date, Bang! Pow!
Boom![2] peaked at number 4 on the Billboard 200 charts in 2009, and
was widely acclaimed by critics as a positive and new direction for
the group. But this achievement was routinely masked by the
predictable exclamations of their Juggalo homies/groupies who found
the album to be ?disappointing compared to the rest,? with another
one going far enough to say ?I really think that J and Dope are just
running out of ideas, this albums lyrics are real simple.?

Their demure attempt at trying to combine the elements of classic
hip-hop and rock in their latest of a string of artistically
inadequate albums, one single from 2009 that does stand out is
?Miracles? ?but for all the wrong reasons. Despite the obvious
flaws in it, the song is just pure and simple laziness. Perhaps a lack
of creativity played its part, but the strongly rising mental
instability of the Insane Clown Posse can only be understood ? but
not under estimated ? through a quick glance at their lyrics[3].
Among the things that are upsetting these clowns in this song are
magnets (?Fucken magnets, how do they work?!?) and scientists
(?Ya?ll motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed!?) and the
apathetic treatment of birth (?I?ve seen shit that shock your
eyelids?).

One look through the video, and you?ll understand why ICP need to
return to their day jobs.
