      The wait is just about over and beginning next week on Wednesday the Insane Clown Posse will hit the road for the most massive tour of 2013! It’s ICP’s The Mighty Death Pop Tour and it’s comin’ your way, Ninjas!

      ICP has been working diligently on this tour and while majority of it, as always, is being kept under strict lock and key, Violent J has dropped a few hints about what ‘Los and ‘Lettes can plan to see when they hit up this show via the official Insane Clown Posse twitter (@ICP). He says, “I've never been more [excited] for a tour. ALL RARE SONGS TOP TO [BOTTOM]. We've talked about doing a tour like this from day one -VJ”

      So while you’ll catch the classic action of an ICP show that you know and love, the wicked clown army and Faaaaaygo, you’ll also be able to hear a brand new setlist of Insane Clown Posse rarities!

      In addition to the killer set list from ICP they have two openers that are sure as hell going to guarantee your entire night is packed to the edges with dope ass music. We’re talking about Moonshine Bandits and KungFu Vampire! These performers are off the chain, but you don’t have to take our word for it. You can find out more about both of them at moonshinebandits.com and kungfuvampire.com!

      If you already have your ticket to hit up one of the tour dates below or plan on getting one, you’re going to want to think about bumping your ICP concert experience up to a whole new level.

      If you still haven’t picked up Legz Diamond and the Purple Gang’s “9 Pistolas,” you’re missing the fuck out on a dope ass album. But don’t just take it from us – just ask music critics all over the nation, who have consistently ranked “9 Pistolas” as a classic in-the-making!

      Check it out!

      “Legz Diamond has been appearing on albums by various Psychopathic Records artists for two decades, and now it’s his time to shine. Fuck me, is he making the most of his opportunity. There’s a ragged, semi-concept to the album, the subject matter centering around old school, prohibition-era gangsters, good weed and other shit that gangsters get up to. The thing is, the tunes are awesome; super-catchy and razor-sharp. Check this guy out.” – Metro Times

      “9 Pistolas is a quirky blast…The hooks, the good times,

and the great feeling are always present on this attractive ride through rap-rock and whatnot.” – All Music Guide (three-and-a-half star rating)

      “9 Pistolas is a well-rounded and highly entertaining album.” – Real Detroit (three and-a-half star rating)

      So take it from the experts – Legz Diamond and the Purple Gang’s “9 Pistolas” is the shit! Go pick it up at stores nationwide and on hatchetgear.com!

      on the same level as Bloods and Crips. Of course, we all know that’s total bullshit and that’s why ICP and Psychopathic Records have sued the FBI in an effort to get Juggalos removed from the gang list. We’re so tired of hearing stories about how Juggalos have been arrested, harassed, had their Juggalo status used against them in custody hearings, etc. Just to let you all know, we are all VERY hard at work at clearing our name. In a recent feature on Insane Clown Posse that was published in the Oakland Press, one of our attorneys spoke about the current status of the lawsuit:

      “The Bloomfield Hills-based law firm Hertz Schram PC has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit on behalf of ICP and its Psychopathic Records company seeking documents related to the gang classification. A trial date is set for next March. The firm also has been talking to

Juggalos who feel their civil rights have been infringed upon by the designation in preparation for another suit asking for the fans to be removed from the list. ‘The whole thing is absurd,’ says attorney Howard Hertz, who says the firm has ‘gotten thousands of responses’ from Juggalos and is ‘weeding through them to come up with a handful of plaintiffs’ to move the second suit forward. ‘We’re not ready to file yet,’ Hertz says, ‘but it’s getting close.’

      We are on the path of a long, hard journey, ‘Los and ‘Lettes, but we feel that this is a fight worth taking on. You, the Juggalos who have been added to this list, are worth fighting for. We assure you as more information arises we will keep you informed, but as for now you can read the entire Oakland Press article here.
