Insane Clown Posse finally getting their own TV show

Having already mastered the art of wicked rhymes, conquered the world of cinema, and asked bold questions about magnets, there’s only one frontier left for the Insane Clown Posse to conquer: television.

Thanks to Fuse, TV will soon belong to ICP. Starting Wednesday, July 24, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J will star in the weekly series Insane Clown Posse Theater, wherein the two Detroit rappers will comment on music videos and perform in sketches. Think of it like those video segments of Beavis & Butt-Head, or the entirety of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Gathering of the Juggalos infomercial is here, in all its zombie-killing, Ric Flair-shouting glory

For devoted followers of the Insane Clown Posse and the signees to their Psychopathic Records label, the annual Gathering of the Juggalos is the highlight of every year. But for people who simply like to think about what ICP means in the 21st century (and who are steadily amused by their ability to construct viral-ready videos), the day that the Gathering of the Juggalos informercial hits the Internet represents the best part of the calendar.

The 13th annual Gathering goes down August 8-12 at a camp site in the group’s adopted haven of Cave In Rock, Ill., (or “Illinoise” to the folks talking about it in the video below). This year’s lineup is suitably eclectic, featuring the awkwardly-named members of ICP’s label roster (Anybody Killa, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Twiztid, the Psychopathic Ridas and the like), a smattering of metal bands (P.O.D., Mushroomhead, Fear Factory, Soulfly), a bunch of hip-hop legends and former superstars (Geto Boys, Warren G, DMX, Master P, Raekwon), and, of course, Kottonmouth Kings (who still manage to defy any and all categories). There are also a number of parties, carnival games, seminars, wrestling events, and a barbecue that features cheeseburgers being hurled at you from the stage.

Check out the video below, though be warned: The language is especially salty, and it’s also a whopping 23 minutes long. Still, it’s worth it.  READ FULL STORY

Jack White, Insane Clown Posse, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart walk into a bar... No really, it's actually happening


That sounds like the beginning to a filthy joke about powdered wigs and Faygo, but those three parties are actually getting together for what should be a wild collaboration.

According to the greatest press release ever written by a human, band collector/empire runner Jack White will be producing a new version of a forgotten Mozart ditty called “Leck Mich Im Arsch” (which apparently translates to “Lick Me in the A–” — as Amadeus proved, Wolfie adored a good bawdy joke). To execute the song, White has called on fellow Detroit natives Insane Clown Posse to add new lyrics to the melody that will be played by Nashville garage-metallers JEFF the Brotherhood.

The track will be available on September 13 both digitally and as a seven inch single (it wouldn’t be a White production without some level of vinyl scarcity). The b-side will be a song called “Mountain Girl,” which is apparently an ICP rap about a shotgun wedding and meth addiction.

We haven’t heard the song yet (there is some sort of small preview here), but obviously it’s one of the most awesomely unusual tag-teams to come up in a while. UPDATE: OH WOW.

Then again, considering Alice Cooper is working with Ke$ha and Kid Rock has teamed up with just about everybody, maybe slightly crazy people from Detroit are destined to work in unusual pairings.

Insane Clown Posse on loving Ice Cube, hosting Charlie Sheen, and surviving this weekend's Gathering of the Juggalos: An EW Q&A


For the second consecutive weekend, the state of Illinois will play host to a major music festival.

Lollapalooza brought Foo Fighters, Eminem, Coldplay, and Muse to Chicago; the Gathering of the Juggalos will bring together hip-hop heavyweights like Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Lil Jon, Mystikal, and Paris, with a final Sunday night set by the festival’s founders and organizers, the Insane Clown Posse.

This is the 12th annual event for Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, and what began as a simple showcase for the groups on their label has turned into a major yearly event. The duo, who often refer to themselves as “The World’s Most Hated Band,” have put together four days of everything that falls under the header of Juggalo culture, including music, carnival rides, professional wrestling, drinking, nudity, and, of course, seminars.

Part of the popularity of the Gathering lies in the infomercials the Clowns have created to promote the events; the clips are such a viral sensation that they have been parodied on Saturday Night Live at least three times.

While normal festival rules apply this weekend (stay hydrated, wear sunblock), there are a few extra survival tips that EW picked up when we caught up with J and Shaggy last week. If you’re planning on making the trip out to Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, this weekend, remember these simple pieces of advice: READ FULL STORY

The Gathering of the Juggalos trailer has arrived: Aliens, clowns, Vanilla Ice and Busta Rhymes

When you woke up this morning, did you realize that it was going to be the best Internet day of the year?

We’ve had the announcement of Apple’s iCloud, a hilarious video starring a UFC fighter and this amazing gallery of cats trying to keep cool in bodegas.

But it’s mostly a great day because the Insane Clown Posse have unleashed their  infomercial announcing the lineup for the 2011 Gathering of the Juggalos.

This particular piece of Internet video has grown in legend in the last few years, going from a simple green screen recitation of band names to the epic, sci-fi-channeling gem you see below. Heck, they’ve even been parodied by Saturday Night Live. (Twice!)

Hit the jump for the nearly half-hour clip, which opens with a Star Wars-style text crawl and stars Vanilla Ice. You will not be disappointed:
