Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group and was created by the rapper Esham on the insane clown posse song chop chop from . Juggalos have developed their own idioms, sets, slang and characteristics which they all owe to Rapper Esham.

esham invented juggalos

Juggalos need to know the truth instead of the lie shaggy 2 dope was stuttering some lyrics of a song in 1993 to came up with it that story is a lie with no proof to substantate it , and if the term was created then the insane clown posse would of used it in songs in 1992-1993 but they did not .

The ever edited wikipedia says

During a live performance of the song “The Juggla” in 1993, Bruce addressed the audience as Juggalos, and the positive response resulted in the group using the word thereafter , while this may be the case 1993 was already after esham the unholy as he was known at the time came up with the term “juggalo” to refer to a fan of insane clown posse. Nice story but filled with lies.

Beverly Kills 50187 was recorded 1992-1993 and the chop chop track was one of the earlier tracks of the album – it is the first recorded instance of the use of the word juggalo to discuss follower of icp and well before the supposed performance of the juggla .

The first time the word Juggalo was used to describe a fan of The insane clown posse was by esham on the song CHOP CHOP – from the album Beverly Kills 50187.
The song opens to some stupid audio recording but then proceeds with esham saying JUGGALOS JUGGALAS JUGGALOS…
The way the word juggalo was invented all begun from the esham verse of that song “If I juggle then call me a juggla” .. he then recorded the intro when mixing the album – notice some older lyric sites have eshams opening line as juggles ,juggles ,juggles as the word juggalo was non existent at that time.
From that moment on juggalos have been synonymous with insane clown posse as fans took the name esham gave them as their own.

    That may very well be so, but with out J and Shaggz, the juggalos would never have started up at all. They gave us shape and a group of friends to call our own when we we were the outcasts of other groups. Read behind the paint it tells of the Esham hand in the naming of the juggalos. There was originally no juggalettes. Juggalo was supposed to be used to name all the fans, not just men but all. Juggalo was supposed to be a name for all because it was supposed to show equality with in the group as a whole. Most juggalos had come from bottom barrel broke families. They were outcasts in their schools because they couldn’t afford the latest toys, fashions, etc. Picked on because they got their hair cut by family because they couldn’t afford a barber. Juggalos had a big heart. They didn’t want to see others go through what they went through. Juggalos gave those kids a group to call their own. A set of freinds that had been through similar things. Juggalo described equality. Anyone could be a juggalo, no mater race color, creed or sex! Females were juggalos, men were juggalos, all were juggalos. Back then juggalos were a little more friendly and easier to get along with. I should know, I’m a Juggalo! There are still some of us peace loving, energetic and helpful Juggalos out there. Now a days though, some of the people who are claiming were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and was bought everything they ever wanted growing up, they don’t know what it’s like to go without, be picked on because of your diffence and have no group of friends they could call their own. Some of the people claiming juggalo, were in gangs before becoming a juggalo, but the actions and lives of certain individuals shouldn’t be used to label the group as a whole. Seriously, The Grateful Dead had fans that did a lot of f****d up things, but they didn’t get branded as a violent gang. What about metalheads? I was lucky to have what little bit I had growing up, what little friends I had. Yes I made some poor decisions in my life, but that didn’t make me a bad person, I just didn’t think first. I learned valuable lessons and have become a great person. I have a lot of great friends, a place of my own, a loving well-behaved child, and I’m a Juggalo! I help those I can and try to be the best that I can be. Yes there maybe some juggalos who are perpetrating, but that shouldn’t be used to label all of us. A lot of people don’t like the music. I like it, because to me it’s like listening to a 3 minute horror movie. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I’m not going to knock you for yours, I just want you to know we all aren’t the same. Those who put you down for how you feel need to realize that it’s your decision and yours alone, and all their smack talking will make it worse. A real honest to God Juggalo will be like “Oh he don’t like Juggalos? Big whoop, I have more important things to worry about than what he thinks”, a fake juggalo would be like “He don’t f*****g like juggalos? Well let’s go f**k him up! I’m a beat yo ass my n***a”. I’m glad you don’t like us, it’s what makes you different! I apologize for rambling on. I’m just going to end this now. But you have a good day, and stay real to yourself!
