Insane clown posse Really is underground – Wins Detroit Music Awards’ distinguished artist


You dont see this award going to real underground detroit artists who have produced more albums then icp Such as Mastamind – http://www.toxsic-forum.athena-server.com/ and Esham http://acidrap.com but let the juggalo sheep keep believing that icp is underground to sell records .

Honor humbles shock masters ICP

It’s ICP’s turn.

After shocking the world with its cartoonishly violent raps, covering the globe in Faygo and explaining to the masses their position on what does and what doesn’t constitute a miracle, Insane Clown Posse will receive the Detroit Music Awards’ distinguished artist award at this year’s awards ceremony.

It’s an honor that head clown Violent J takes very seriously.

“I promise you, they’ve never given this award to anyone who’s more thankful for it than us,” says J, whose real name is Joe Bruce and whose face is very rarely seen not covered in greasepaint. “To give us that kind of award is just unreal. I can’t believe somebody somewhere sat around and thought of us for that.”

ICP has been around as long as the DMAs, and has amassed a huge following of devoted fans — dubbed Juggalos — along the way. They’ve built an empire by catering to the underground, and have moved millions of albums (and just as many T-shirts) by inviting fans to what they call the Dark Carnival.

ICP — who once wore the tag of “World’s Most Hated Group” and has more recently gained online notoriety due to their in-house promotional videos and their many parodies — has been supportive of the Detroit Music Awards over the years and has attended several of the ceremonies.

Now, J says he is honored to receive an award that in past years has been given to Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Smokey Robinson, Alice Cooper and Bob Seger.

“We’re real excited about it. I just feel like we never count,” he says, addressing the group’s outsider status. “So to have them stand up and say that about us and give us that award, that means a lot to us.”

  1. Sounds like to me he got an award for being different than every other artist out there today. And i don’t care if it is ICP or Eminem (probably not nominatted just an example) either one could win the award. and it would be an accomplishment to be proud of.

  2. wait, mastamind has made more albums than ICP? I don’t think so. Esham maybe, but not masta.

    When ICP wins a grammy and colabs with lil wane we’ll stop calling ’em underground.

    THEY ALREADY ARE DOING A CONCERT WITH LIL WAYNE

  3. Mastamind does have more albums than ICP. You obviously aren’t very caught up with his work. You can call ICP underground all you’d like, it will not deter from the fact that they aren’t, nor have been since The Great Milenko when they were signed by Disney. Not to mention playing on MTV and VH1, as well as being on the WWE multiple times. And as said, the concert with Lil Wayne is already going to happen.

  4. They got booked for a festival that he also was booked for. Esham was on a tour with D12, that’s more mainstream than anything ICP has done.

    PLEASE STOP YOUR KILLING ME
    LIL WAYNE HAS AND ALWAYS WAS MORE FAMOUS THEN D12

  5. Show with Lil Wayne. Tour with D12. 1 Show with Lil Wayne, a whole tour with D12. Do you get what I’m sayin here? I’m sayin that by your logic Esham is more mainstream than ICP.

    ok onto the mastamind thing, no I’m not an expert on the guy, love his work but I don’t know his entire discography. However In my possession are 25 individual CD’s that ICP has released, not counting re releases, solo albums, or super group albums.
    If you include Solos and super groups, the total number of ICP albums comes to 37. Not including Mixtape type albums that feature mostly ICP.
    If you include those the total comes to 46. That’s 46 Albums by Joe Bruce and Joey Utsler.
    And thats ONLY counting albums sold in stores. And no I did not count any Singles or multiple releases like Bang Pow Boom in this list.

    • AND NOTICE HOW THESE CHILD-MINDED LOSERS THAT JOKINGLY CALL THEMSELVES MEN, HAVE NO RETORT WHAT SO EVER…. WHATS WRONG JH, DICK GOT YOUR TONGUE??? SO SAD…. OVER GROWN CHILDREN IS MORE LIKE IT….. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!!
