The 5 Dons Drop Bombs on Yo Moms:
The Dons of Psychopathic Records and the Insane Clown Posse themselves have finally gotten together and spoken!!! Alex Abbiss, Jumpsteady, Billy Bill, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have all finally set the record straight!!! They truthfully answer every question brought before them. Like it, or not, but these are the facts!
Read on as they either confirm or squash almost every rumor out there. Let this historical memo serve as the true guidelines for the opinions of Psychopathic Records and the Insane Clown Posse.
What is the importance of this memo?
First Violent J explains...
"We are very aware of what is going on out there. Several groups of ninjas (mostly powered by websites and other rappers out there) are forming their own beliefs and viewpoints of what the "Juggalo World" is all about. Buy hey, that is all fine and dandy with us. Do whatever makes you happy ninjas! The term "Juggalo" was originally created by Shaggy and myself to describe "Followers of the Dark Carnival". We also used "Juggalo" to describe people like us. The scrubs of the world. Ninjas who had no love but their own love for each other. But if some people out there seem to think they know what being a "Juggalo" is all about better than we do, then run with it! Go ahead ninja! Do whatever you want homies! You are in control!
However, this letter is to set the shit straight with OUR Juggalos. We would like you all to know that Psychopathic and ICP only support the real Dark Carnival followers out there. Those that still and always will follow our original "JUGGALO" traditions.
It seems as if over time, some ninjas may have actually forgotten what the original Juggalo beliefs were all about. Or they just don't care... Some people are even telling US how things are supposed to be! Imagine that! There are actually some so-called Juggalos out there on the internet and in person that are actually attempting to tell ME what a Juggalo is!!! That's all cool and everything, but for the real Juggalos out there that are wondering what the hell is going on, this memo had to be written to explain our point of view on this madness!
It's simple. In OUR eyes (meaning ICP and Psychopathic's view) there are no Red-Juggalos or Blue-Juggalos. There are no East or West Juggalos. No old school or new breed Juggalos. No Juggalo Wolf Pacs. No fuckin' NWO Juggalos or any of that shit. We see no difference in male Juggalos and female Juggalettes. In our eyes there are only Juggalos! Juggalos are Juggalos! That goes for everybody that's following the tradition.
Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, Blaze, and Psychopathic Records only recognize the straight up, Dark Carnival, original ass, mutha fuckin' Juggalos and nothing else. Got it? Good. Anything beyond that, is cool as hell, but you are on your own as far as we're concerned.
Shaggy Jumps in...
In our eyes, a Juggalo is mainly about 3 things. Psychopathic Record's music, each other, and the Dark Carnival. If your "Junkaloo Crew" doesn't fit that format, then y'all don't fit on our wagons. It's plain and simple. Don't expect to ever witness the real Dark Carnival's magic by using your own homemade blend of Junkaloo VooDoo.
As for the haters... If you don't like what we're saying then eat a dicksicle. If you think you are a "Traditional Juggalo" but you disagree with WHAT WE SAY a "Juggalo" is, then you ain't no fuckin' Juggalo. Fuck you! Go make up your own word! Try "Fuggin-hoe". I don't need anybody telling me what a Juggalo is. There are 1,000,000 other groups out there for you to support. I only want real Juggalos buying my shit. I don't want East Side Playa Jumpadoes or fuckin' O-Town Funky Jummaglos or any of that bullshit. Just traditional Psychopathic Records ICP, Twiztid, and Blaze Juggalos that still believe in the Dark Carnival. They are all we want, they are all we need, and they are all we'll ever care about. Fuck Everybody else".
Billy Bill Continues...
"We just want the world to know that Psychopathic Record's shit is only for Psychopathic Records Juggalos. Our gathering, or concerts, or parties, our music, wrestling events and shows in general are all structured for that one rare breed of Juggalo. Psychopathic Juggalos. It doesn't matter if your a brand new Juggalo or you've been down for 100 years as long as your a TRUE Hatchet Juggalo then we are there for you! All this is for YOU and only YOU! Its all for and about the original Juggalos that share our same believes in life, love, and music. That underdog scrub to the mainstream world. That mutha fuckin' Juggalo. That person nobody wants around them. We want them around us. Just like they are. They are our brothers and sisters.
As for all these other groups and crews forming their own version of Juggalos, and trying to rip off the only thing we're proud of in life... you fuckin' hoes don't tell us what a Juggalo is, we tell you! Don't kid yourself bitches.
So, if you read this memo and you find something you dislike about it, there is no need to get upset. Just join up with one of them new Jubbaloo posse's. Maybe they will take you in"
What bands of rap groups do you feel have the "Right" to refer to their audience as Juggalos?
Violent J answers first.
If the group or band is playing a show with us at the time, obviously we don't mind if they call out Juggalos! In fact we love it! For example, if a group or band is opening a show for us, Twiztid or Blaze, then it's all good. Yell Juggalo all you want because of course there would be mad Juggalos in the house. In that case, why not address them by name, right? But if the Psychopathic Records Family has absolutely nothing to do with the show at all, and some rapper or band is up on stage yelling "Juggalos make some noise!!!" that's stale as fuck. That's just like some other band calling their fans "Dead Heads" in hopes that they'll follow them around the country too. If the Grateful Dead ain't around at the time, then that band ain't got no right addressing their audience as Dead Heads. That's Bullshit. To me it's just like some punk ass rapper calling himself a No Limit Soldier, even if he has nothing to do with No Limit Records. What kind of shit is that? Imagine if I ran around calling myself a "Wu Tanger!". And I was like "Wu Tangs in the hooouuussseeee!". How shitty would that sound? To me that's just as shitty as some group I don't even know calling their fans "Juggalos". Fuck that shit. Earn your own crowd and get off the Juggalos dick.
Let me break it down to you like this... Here is what the real problem is. Not only are some rap crews referring to their audience as Juggalos, but they are going even further. They are actually tricking the Juggalos into thinking they are down with us! That shit really pisses us off.
Here is how they do it. They'll start up a rap group or band. They'll copy our shit and rip us off as much as possible. Then they'll contact a popular Juggalo web site out there and make friends with them. Then that web site starts posting interviews and selling the groups t-shirts, CD's and all that shit. After a while, the rest of the Juggalo world sees this and suddenly assumes they are family with us! Next thing you know, these punk ass nobodies got every Juggalo out there thinking they are family!
Everywhere I go and everything I do, I'm constantly bombarded with questions about millions of horror core rap acts that say they know us. I don't have one ounce of love for not one of them fake ass bitch groups. All they are is coat riding faggots trying to take a short cut to success by fooling Juggalos. What I can't believe is that some of these Juggalo web sites are actually letting it happen!
Jump Steady jumps in...
Some of these groups may have actually did a show our a tour with ICP or Twiztid at one point. Then they take that one lil' bit of prestige and fool millions of Juggalos with it. They tell everybody that will listen about how Juggalos down they are and worst part is mad Juggalos believe it! That's fuckin' bullshit. All of us (Psychopathic and true Juggalos) hand built this Juggalo world. It took us more than 10 years of blood, sweat, and love for each other to do it. Well, we finally did it. Our Juggalo world now exists. And we damn sure ain't gonna let any punk that raps fool us and just jump in our family. We have too much respect for what a Juggalo is to have that happen.
Alex Abbiss finishes by saying this...
You can trust us! TRUST THIS: If we (Psychopathic Records) tell you a band or group is part of OUR Juggalo family, then you can damn sure believe there going to be the SHIT! You can bet they've earned your respect. We don't bring anything before you Juggalos until we feel they deserve YOU. Anybody out there claiming to be down with the real JUGGALO PSYCHOPATHIC FAMILY that ain't named ICP, Twiztid, or Blaze is lying to you. Straight up. They are all fuckin' lying. Don't be a fool and believe that shit.
Sure, you might like their music and buy all their records. That's fine with us! Who cares? We could give a fuck less! Kid Rock sells a lot of albums too. But Kid Rock ain't claiming the word Juggalo either! He ain't fooling you all into thinking he's down with us. But these other little rip off rap groups are! So fuck them!
Jelly Nuts Drops some truth on subjects for local Detroit are Juggalos...
Now, for the local Juggalos here in Detroit that are always wondering what's up with this band and that group, let me tell you how it really is. I absolutely hate to drop names so I won't, but let me just say this.
Local Juggalos in Detroit might know of a group that Twiztid was once part of years ago. Some ninjas might even want to know if Twiztid's old crew is down with us? Are they cool with ICP and Twiztid? Do we consider them family? What about other local groups out there? You hear their names all over Juggalo Fan sites everywhere! Of course Twiztid's old crew and most of there other groups will tell you THAT THEY ARE family with us all day long! But Juggalos, just remember this, Twiztid left that group for a reason. And those other groups are not signed to Psychopathic for reasons! Can't you ninjas see that? Think about it. If everything really was all fine and dandy with them groups and us, why wouldn't they all be signed to Psychopathic? No offence to Twiztid's old crew at all (and we hate to use them as an example), but they ain't down with us! They ain't down with Psychopathic, and they sure as fuck ain't down with Twiztid! Neither are any of these other acts.
Yes ninjas, we wish all these groups luck and success. Fuck, it's obvious that they all have great talent and they could make it all the way to the top on their very own. But as for them trying to fool Juggalos into thinking they run with us, they need to quit that shit. They need to find their own path to success the same way we had to. Shit, we did it without any web site to jump on but our own! We make it here on our very own!
Now, if some ninjas out there still want to feature these groups up on your JUGGALO WEBSITES and refer to them as JUGGALO MUSIC, then go ahead. We would never try to tell y'all what to do and how to live. We fuckin' love y'all. But just remember this... traditional style Psychopathic Records Juggalos (meaning ICP, Twiztid, and Blaze Juggalos) are the only Juggalos we'll ever recognize. That's a fact.
What about National Acts? Who is down with the Psychopathic Family?
Shaggy answers first...
Nobody. We have friends out there, but to consider somebody Family means we share the Hatchet Man on our shit. If they ain't Psychopathic Records, then they ain't family. Right now our family is small, but at least you know it's REAL. We have no watered down bullshit acts that are just stamped "Psychopathic" to make money. Psychopathic right now is only ICP, Twiztid, and Blaze. We have a few more people we are working with, but they won't get introduced to the Juggalos until they are ready.
Jump Steady regulates...
I'll tell you why we don't consider anybody Family unless they are e on Psychopathic Records. Every band and every record company out there all have their very own ways of doing things. Psychopathic does too. We like to stay broke. What I mean by that is, we might not have a lot of money laying around, but that's because we put it all back into our shit. We spend hella loot on stage sounds, stage lights, and all kinds of crazy shit. Anybody that has ever seen a Psychopathic Records Act live will tell you that! We put mad loot into our shows! Some people don't know this but we spend lots of extra loot just to make Juggalos smile.
Alex Abbiss schools some unknown facts...
Let me give y'all some examples of the Psychopathic business mentality. Our tactics are often considered bad business but it is just our way of doing things. Check this out...Nobody knows this, but we lose money every month on our comic book. Each issue puts us farther into the hole. The cost of that full color book, the artist rates and putting a CD single in each issue is ridiculous. People don't know this either but last year's Gathering of the Juggalos put us behind $50,000. Here is more unknown facts. The JCW tour last year put us under $50,000. Injuries, lights, stage sets, and bussing all them fuckin' wrestlers was a business man's nightmare! But we feel it was all worth it, because Juggalos love us even more for it.
We keep doing things this way because that's just how we do it. We like to keep Juggalos satisfied. With only 3 hands on the label, we have to keep thinking of new shit to do. Wrestling videos, documentaries, comics, dolls, comic conventions, instores, surprise shows and parties and our newest project... the helly large MORTON'S LIST. That is just the Psychopathic Records way of doing shit. We are about more than just music. We want to provide a Juggalo way of life.
Violent J interrupts...
Getting back to your original question of what other bands out there do we consider family? None. Nobody wants to be family with us. Most bands or groups out there ain't willing to make the same sacrifices we do.
What about groups or bands that you are cool with? Maybe they ain't family, but ICP and Psychopathic Records do have friends out there, right?
Violent J is quick to answer...
People always want to know who we are down with. Straight up, fuck every band out there. That's how we feel most of the time. There ain't a band out there that's gonna help me before they help themselves, even if they had to step on me to do it. Of course, we have friends out there, but they are all just friends. We are down with Marz of course... Three Six Mafia, Vanilla Ice, Ice T, Public Enemy, Snoop Dogg, Biohazard, Krazy Bone, Bloodhound Gang, Suicide Machines, Esham, Natas, Mindless Self Indulgence , and lots more I guess. But them are just groups we hang with from time to time. With the exception of Three Six Mafia, Vanilla Ice, Esham, and Marz, I really don't even know if any of them other groups would even admit that they are cool with us in public. In fact, I doubt they would. That's OK through. We have a bad rep I guess. Whatever.
Whatever. J talks to people. I don't really have nothing to say to anybody. I like Ice, Marz, Three Six and them, but whatever. AIn't nobody really down with us but Psychopathic. People hate us... because they fear us.
Look. Business is what it is. Every band is mostly concerned with their own situation and that's that. Sure, we all have friends and acquaintances out there, but in this business everybody is more like your competition than your buddy. Much love to everybody out there. There are a lot of groups that really busted their ass to get where they are, and the last thing they owe is us or anybody else a fuckin handshake.
