I’ve seen ninjas posting about this here and there but until I dug a little deeper into it I had no clue what this whole Clown Check shit was all about. So check it out, there is a social video app called Tik Tok that I guess is all the trend (or maybe not, I don’t know) and ninjas using the app are embracing their inner Juggalos.
Insane Clown Posse are a cartoonish metal/rap band with a vaunted live show that features open fires, chain saws, liters of soda dousing the audience (Faygo being the group's favorite brand), and more emphasis on performance ...
Now just a duo, ICP were originally formed in 1989 as a hardcore Detroit rap group called Inner City Posse.
After combusting in 1991, the only members left, Violent J (born Joseph Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (born Joseph Utsler), slightly altered the name to reflect the fact that they had been visited by the Carnival Spirit, who ordered them to carry word of the impending apocalypse by touring the nation and releasing six "joker cards" (popularly known as LPs) with successive revelations of the final judgment.
As a result, it was a better record than their predecessors, boasting a tougher sound and some actual hooks, without losing the juvenile vulgarity that pleased their following.
So, everything should have worked out -- ICP had a commercial album that would have brought them a big audience, if the marketplace could overlook the fact that the duo was dressed like evil clowns. On the day of the release of The Great Milenko, Hollywood pulled the album from the market, claiming that they were unaware of the offensive content of the record.
Their 2005 EP 'The Calm' went to number five on Billboard's Top Rap Albums Chart and other releases followed it onto the Top Rap Albums Chart. 4' (2005) reached number 20, 'The Wraith: Remix Albums' (2006) and 'Jugganauts: The Best of ICP' number 23 (the latter reached number 19 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart), 'The Tempest' (2007) number eight (it peaked at number six on the Top Rock Albums Chart), 'Bang! 5' (2013) number 13, 'Marvelous Missing Link (Lost)' (2015) number two and 'Marvelous Missing Link (Found)' (2015) number nine (number 13 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart).
Their 2019 release 'Fearless Fred Fury' peaked at number 24 on the Top Rap Albums Chart and number 26 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart.That seems a little unlikely, since a company wouldn't really sink a million dollars into a project being "unaware" of what it was about.Still, the resulting furor meant that the Insane Clown Posse -- a group that would never have been famous or infamous -- became national figures, and The Great Milenko had some sort of hip status.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 performs a style of hardcore hip hop known as horrorcore and is known for its elaborate live performances.Insane Clown Posse are a cartoonish metal/rap band with a vaunted live show that features open fires, chain saws, liters of soda dousing the audience (Faygo being the group's favorite brand), and more emphasis on performance art than the performance of music.
