Grab some Faygo and call a fellow Juggalo: Insane Clown Posse, the Detroit rap duo known for its "horrorcore" style, is coming to Baton Rouge this spring.
Insane Clown Posse started in 1989 in Detroit, Michigan and features members Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J.
By 1997, the group had a platinum album on its hands with "The Great Milenko." A follow-up in 1999, "The Amazing Jeckel Brothers," sold another million copies and debuted at No. 4 in the Billboard 200 album charts in its first week.
Insane Clown Posse's popularity hasn't waned in the years since as the group has its own festival (the Gathering of the Juggalos), record label (Psychopathic Records), and its own wrestling league (Juggalo Championship Wrestling).
In 2010, the band had a minor hit with "Miracles," from the album, "Bang! Pow! Boom!" That song includes the classic line, "F*****' magnets, how do they work?"
The group is no stranger to controversy, either, due to the shocking and graphic nature of its lyrics, label disputes, and legal and health problems.
In 2011 and most notoriously, the band's fans, the Juggalos, were classified as a "loosely organized hybrid gang," by the FBI in a bi-annual National Gang Threat Assessment Report.
Last September, the band organized a Juggalo March on Washington, D.C. to retract the classification of fans as gang members. The march featured some 3,000 fans.
In December, the group lost its legal battle as the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the FBI's decision to list Juggalos as a gang was not legally binding and could not be challenged in court.
In 2018, ICP is set to release its fifteenth studio album and 36th release overall, "Fearless Fred Fury."
