The Moon and the Stars, Venus and Mars... PB and J in charge!
The Amazing Jeckel Brothers was released on May 25th 1999 and is ICP's 5th installment to the first set of 6 jokers cards. The album debuted and peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 and received platinum certification in 2008. The album was produced Mike E. Clark and features appearances by Snoop Dogg, The Jerky Boys, and Twiztid. Joe Bruce (aka Violent J) stated that he wanted to involve Snoop Dogg, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Ice-T. Upon Snoop Dogg's agreement he requested that Insane Clown Posse not pay his then-current record label, No Limit Records, and said that he would appear on the album if the group gave him $40,000 in a briefcase. Insane Clown Posse agreed, and Snoop Dogg appeared on the song "The Shaggy Show". Snoop Dogg went on to help ICP contact Ol' Dirty Bastard, who was paid $30,000 for his appearance. ODB recorded his track in a matter of two days but his recording consisted of nothing more than him rambling about "bitches." It took Bruce and Utsler a week to assemble just four rhymes out of his rambling because his raps were out of synch with Clark's beat. The duo eventually went on to re-record their lines and re-title the song "Bitches". Finally, Insane Clown Posse had contacted Ice-T. He charged them only $10,000 but the group felt that Ice-T's song did not belong on the album, and was instead released on the compilation, Psychopathics from Outer Space in 2000. The song "Echo Side" was originally released at an Insane Clown Posse concert in Garden City, Michigan as the first ever single from the group Dark Lotus.

What up y'all dcfaygoguy here! I wanted to take a little bit of time to talk about the new drink available on Twiztid-Shop.com and the amount of backlash it has received. Yes I too made a video pointing out the "outrageous" price of the beverage.
Jumping back to what swayed me from buying a bottle to review: the shipping. Let's face it, shipping isn't cheap. While once again I can only guess what the shipping rate is for them. I can say, shipping isn't cheap! If you are subscribed to my channel, then you know I have done several giveaways. Various giveaways, usually CD's, however upon shipping said giveaways, I've yet to pay less than $3 to ship them. Factor in the weight of the glass bottle, consider the perishable liquid, I imagine it isn't very cheap to ship a bottle of Outrageous Orange Soda. My reconsideration to buy a bottle wasn't a matter of "Fuck you Twiztid that's too much". It was a matter of "Damn I really don't want to pay $13 and some change for this". I will however most likely pick me up a bottle, assuming they'll sell it there, at any show or even the Gathering. Because hey, I like drinking soda and by golly I collect collectibles from my favorite artists. So if you do not like the price, nor feel like spending that kind of money on something you feel isn't worth it, follow my lead: Keep your Faygo and wait for a Twiztid show to finally decide "Hey, I want to try this" or just simply keep your Faygo and pass on this product.
