Biography INSANE CLOWNl POSSE
Like KISS face participants INSANE CLOWN POSSE always hidden under a thick layer of clown make-up, although they claim that it is their real face. And at their concerts is terrible "Feygo, Detroit ancient beverage, which has hundreds of different tastes and pours on the frenzied crowd, like a hose.
Detroit - is in Michigan, and Michigan, as you know, - one of the poorest states of America. In its cities (especially in villages) live millions of beggars, dining on free food stamps, stealing, and therefore did not get out of prison. If these involuntary dregs of society and create a family, then such unit of society hold year (on the strength of two), but in the end the children suffer.
. Joe Bruce ugorazdilo be born precisely in such a family and then thrice damned place called Berkeley
. My stepfather had changed every two to three years, . and convey the impression, . that each of them his ruthless attitude toward his mother tried to outdo predecessor, . could not but enrage Joe and his older brother Rob, . that, . on whether they will, . shot to all of these villains.,
. Just do not consider it for a children's fiction, but in their old house vodilis ghosts
. Joe collided with one of them at the entrance to the bedroom and screamed wildly. Then, this translucent figure seen all the pets, and it scared them cool. Then Rob and Joe, left alone, turned to the spirit with words of respect and told him about all the difficulties of their families, and especially the unhappy fate of their mother. The prayer worked, and ghosts ceased to frighten the family, and to manufacture various tricks with guests. And now, when Joe and Rob crossed the threshold of his house, suddenly turns on the light in the hallway, and when they left the house, turn off the lights themselves.
Bruce lived very poorly. Almost always, they had no spare shoes, extra pair of pants and underwear. Their mother was the porter's wife in a church in Berkeley for five years and received coupons for free food. But they have never lived in the ghetto, and my mother even had a pimped-machine on which it is often picked up and their neighbors' children to school. Classmates laughed at Bruce, and the neighbor's kids were asked to plant them for a couple of blocks from school, so no one knew that their mother picked up Brousov. All this was humiliating, . and the kids were sworn mom, . what, . when they grow up and grow rich, . she would have a cool car and all, . that she wants (and truth, . now she has a huge jeep "Durango" with a luxurious leather interior and all the twists, . my house, . and the majority of childhood friends Joe and cool cars!).,
. In school, Rob and Joe called none other than the notorious brothers, Bruce
. When the girls invent some new game, the worst punishment was always the loser to kiss one of the uncouth brothers Brousov. Because of their poverty, they could not afford to eat in the school cafeteria, where one portion of cost just a little more than a dollar. So they ate on credit and never returned the money in the 3-day period. The names of malicious defaulters were transmitted by radio to school every morning, and Bruce was kept there palm.
When Joe was 12 years old, they moved to Oak Park, where their mother has found another husband. This city was a mixture of devilish number of races and nationalities, so life was not so boring, but the school flies all interest in life, although boys were not the lost (did not drink or smoke or even pricked). It was here in the 7 th grade, Joe met with Shaggy, or simply Joey Altserom. Bruce attended the same school, and older brother Joey, John. They became friends and started a gang, despite the fact that Shaggy was more than two years younger.
. They had their own rap team called JJ BOYS (their names begin with the letter "J"), where Bruce called Jagged Joe, and Altsera - Kangal Joe (he was very fond kangalezskuyu wears a hat)
. The boys competed in the freestyle with another local rap band WRECKING CREW, which sounded poprofessionalnee them, but had no plans to write something. JJ BOYS, by contrast, once recorded a cassette with the ninja from Hazel Park, whose name was Scratch Master T, at his home and its equipment. In fact the tape in its completed form was one and only one short song "The Party At The Top Of The Hill", . where mentioned Michigan's national drink "Feygo" (delicious and very cheap), . Soon it became for the children in the same attribute, . as "Adidas" for RUN-DMC ( "We're the JJ Boys on the microphone stand, . and we're kickin 'it live with a Faygo in our hand ").,
. Besides, the guys regularly razmalevyvali wall and had a graffiti team called KRYLON BOYS
. To be honest, the only one who knew how to draw from them, was Shaggy. Of course, all started together, but after 15 minutes, John and Joe threw that silly idea, and would sit on the curb staring at the cool cars, and Joey, meanwhile finished masterpiece mural painting.
. When Rob's older brother Joe was taken to the army, the situation in the city has changed beyond recognition
. Districts are divided between criminal groups began to flourish thievery and lawlessness. Our friends were branded fasten Leiba with cars and sell them around supermarkets. They played a gangster, but actually looked like children, who tried to be like RUN-DMC.
When Joe thumped 14, he was expelled from school. Later, this happened with Joey, but he, unlike Joe did not even attempt to recover or try to move to another school. They were on the street and were useful school maloprestizhnyh running - from dishwasher to the mummers in all advertising and motley fool, who clicked passersby to visit the nearest pizza. Over the last job they were paid to 10 cans per day, and they worked through the day, replacing each other, as they sewed only one costume. Then they cut, they found another job, thieving, again dismissal and so on.
. All my free time they spent visiting the fighting "WWF" (World Wrestling Federation) and the flea market such as autograph-hunters the most famous fighters have found many adherents, among whom was the future of their good friend Rudy.
. Now friends carefree dream become true fighters, but they continued oshivatsya on the streets, earn one rap and theft
. Racketeering, . recently spread to the south-western states, . stirred their imagination, . and Joe, . Joey and John gathered his group INNER CITY POSSE (ICP), . is absolutely no resemblance to organized criminal gangs, . but rather served as a haven for friends and neighbors,
. Initially, there were about ten, and they are just harassing passers in the evenings, others thrashed themselves were often bits. Then someone suggested to steal car stereo systems, and the process went. This is best obtained from Shaggy and his brother. They took everything that came, drove cars in broad daylight and sold it to their friends on the cheap. Joe basically stood on nix or waited in the car, listening to recordings Dr. Dre, and if you had to participate in the hijacking, they do so in the dark. But in prison he was staying along with others, a million times since 17 years. It took the threat of his girl on the phone, for participation in collective beatings and so forth, but the penalties were limited to brief conclusions or Probation. But he was more interested in fighting in the ring, and in 18 years under the pseudonym Corporal Daniels, he held his first fight in Detroit, once introduced a graduate of Texas wrestling school, although I have learned myself. Joe served in the army uniform, which sent him a brother, and in army boots, which were much easier to find than a true fighting. That's what ninja, he won dozens of battles, including against the current stars of "WWF" Al Snow. A trained him John and Shaggy, who is also very fond of waving.
As the fight, boys were very fond of gangsta rap. The credibility of NWA, Eazy-E and Dr. Dre was so high on the north-west of America, that even the white dream to be as steep mazefakerami speaking the truth in microphone. Was no exception, and Violent J. His first song "Southwest Song" (later she became the second album by ICP "The Ringmaster") was recorded at home on a cheap tape recorder. He handed it on tape with a friend. Those were given to listen to her, and everyone liked it. Then Joe rewrote it for a hundred tapes, and they are easily separated at the festival in a chapel. This inspired him even more, and at a music center with the function of "karaoke" with a friend by the name D-Lyrical, he recorded a whole album of "Intelligence And Violence". This guy represented the quiet intelligent side of this record, well, and Violent J - noisy and violent. But when Joe's girlfriend bought him a real karaoke setup for 125 tanks, Joe sent a D-Lyrical to the devil (he vodilsya with him only because of the equipment) and for all eliminate plaque from their intelligence records. Shaggy and his brother John once again joined Joe, and three of them were read by the machine shop with other people's records.
. Soon their gang INNER CITY POSSE (Violent J, . Shaggy, . Jump Steady, . Rude Boy, . Nate The Mac, . Billy Bill, . Chucky, . Stephan and other ninja), . is so not once provernula no big businessman with arms and drugs, . as a whole took up hip-hop,
. In 1990 they recorded their first karaoke tape "Basement Cuts" and sold for the year ($ 2 a joke) about two hundred copies of it in Detroit and its suburbs. Several copies of Joe sent his brother, who at that time participated in the American military campaign in the Persian Gulf. Picky soldiers were dragged from the music, and his brother Joe had sent some money for the purchase of blank tapes. He also advised the youngsters to turn to his old friend Alex Abbissu (Alex Abbiss), who together with his brother had a music shop in Oak Park. As a result, Alex has sold a lot of hard time to tape, became their best friend and offered them his services as manager. He dissuaded them from sending useless demos by major label and offered to open its label, Psychopathic Records, on which the following year they released their first professional mini-album "Dog Beats" with four new songs.
. Own label swallowed significant financial investment, . so all the money, . they received from running, . leaving the maintenance of Psychopathic, . Violent J and almost ruined his girlfriend, . which, . incidentally, . bad manager and earned a music supermarket,
. In addition, it became more difficult to distribute their recordings on the streets (other groups also took up hip-hop and traded cassettes in their areas, is very jealous of other people's competitors).
. Write to continue "Dog Beats" has been almost completed, . ICP when life has radically changed the so-called carnival of dark forces (Dark Carnival), . which replaced the criminal underworld, the theme of their lyrics and who deserves, . that we talked about it separately,
. The more so because of this thing quarreled and broke INNER CITY POSSE and were born INSANE CLOWN POSSE ...
. Imagine a new universal religion of some sort, but not so tedious, mythical and groundless, as the most ancient beliefs, which regaled the priests and treats us as well-dressed, cheerful, without moralizing, but very graceful and conscious
. Normal people without faith can not - it is a fact. But our heroes have lived without it, they claim, more than twenty years. Before the "carnival" They had no idea they were just having fun and spit on all who did not suit their behavior. When they found illumination, they encoded their music, making it understandable only to selected people with an open mentality, which they called dzhaggolo (Juggolo). Dzhaggolo - the same crazy renegades, as are the ICP. Do they differ from fans of other styles and these religious fanatics? Well, firstly, by their appearance does not say that they are someone fanateyut. Violent J vividly painted dzhaggolo ordinary man, just come out of the shower in the buff. He is fresh, and nothing binds. He wants to have fun, but think about the consequences.
Now to the main issue that cuts across all religions - about life and death. In theory Shaggy and Vaylent after a person dies, his soul is separated from the body and becomes a party to a parade of dark forces. A great number of carts with ghosts, clowns, . led by the spirits, . carrying huge flags with the image of six dzhokernyh cards, . accompanies her to the two end stations - to God or the Devil, . this means, . that soon will be a supreme court and your soul will get or Shangri-Loup (paradise), . or hell,
. To get to the first instance, the servants of "carnival" (among them ICP) life issue to prevent a person "can not live like this, and if people listen to him and live according to conscience, he gets to God. Who thinks of these warning signs and tales, and continues to live without brakes, that waits for hell, but before that he showed all his lifetime errors. In short, Dark Carnival - this is one big warning system under the motto "We told you so!", A bit like a morals police, but with a payback after death.
. When I got up under the banner of this organization, Shaggy and Vaylent were in complete isolation within their own group
. Friends do not understand their new aspirations and called "buffoonery" ravings. Most refused to work on their debut album ICP, . how INSANE CLOWN POSSE, . "The Carnival Of Carnage", . only John remained with them for some time, . but then he went, . when the work in the studio pumped out of the pockets of his recent cash, . Yes, and by and large he did not believe in the general idea,
. He was replaced by Kent on behalf of Eric Greeze E, but only for a month. Therefore, almost the entire album schizophrenic clown rap recorded Vaylent, . Shaggy and Alex, . who even managed to save up and pay two bucks steepest Detroit rapper Esham and Kid Rock, . to those recorded with them a few songs for this disc,
. But even this step is not very helped them with sales. These tapes were sold in several stores and otherwise ridiculed by newspaper critics, representatives of labels and other rappers who hate ICP songs simply because they do not understand them. They advised Shaggy and Vaylentu compose texts in a more innocuous subject and wash away makeup, without which they never appeared in public, as well as KISS, - then it would be, they said, the ICP would be the future. But the most interesting, . that now, . when ICP - platinum band with millions of fans around the world, . 7 years after the aforesaid humiliation and disbelief, . same people say, . that "clowns" have become famous only because of make-up and its tough texts! It turns out just like in one of the songs from Ice Cube: "For anything they do, . fuck him and his crew, . unless you are gettin 'paid too "(" smear him and his team for all, . whatever they are doing, . There you also will not pay for the same thing ").,
. In such circumstances ICP would never have got his hands on the coveted contract with a normal label, if not old, time-tested methods
. They were given thousands of concerts to an audience of several dozen men and three distributing flyers to the stores, wheelbarrows and public places every week, so that each greenhorn in Michigan knew who the ICP, they liked it or not. None of what privacy and speech could not be. The girls they have changed almost every month (Joe says, . is very fond of the first two) and keep throwing them, . because no woman wants, . that she has received much less attention, . than "a crazy idea! They have lost 80 percent of Friends, . but continued to climb upward, . believing in his star.,
. Enormous role in the formation INSANE CLOWN POSSE played Mark E
. Clark, well known in Michigan, producer and engineer, who declined to thousands of lucrative offers from other teams to work (almost for nothing), with Shaggy and Vaylentom. Also, for the benefit of ICP and Psychopathic Records are about a dozen close friends of our childhood heroes and my brother Bruce, who returned from the army. By 1995, on their own label, the duo recorded two albums and three EP, which went on the streets of Michigan, selling over 300 000 copies, that's incredible for underground recordings.
. Interesting that every album, ICP has been encrypted part of the overall concept of six cards featuring jokers, reflecting the diabolical vicious nature of people
. With each new album Vaylent and Shaggy threw on the table next card, and already out of his intro and the liner was clear on which side of human nature is in question here. But we should not think that the music of ICP - this is just slogans, even three encoded. To grasp the meaning of their songs, does not need to be a genius, the more so because ICP - is not PUBLIC ENEMY and not even RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. Want to confess and find solace - go to church to the priest. Only one tenth of their texts hides secret instructive meaning, contains a puzzle with several unknowns and hellish parable. Rest - caper, and music for fun. Says Vaylent, they too have experienced that all the time spend too much time this subject, instead of fun, live to the fullest.
. Also in 1995 they began their uneasy relationship with major record labels, . that were only recently considered them daubed provincial trusties with disturbing lyrics, . but turned to face them, . when ICP became the steepest underground rap-America team,
. First they found the Jive, which the king's shoulder gave them an advance (80 000 dollars) to record the third joker "The Riddlebox". Alex was against this contract, but he did not listen to (and should!). Jive has decided to once again play it safe and spread their third album, just to shop in Michigan, being sure that there is a group of well-known. ICP is very hurt, because at home they can easily be treated without any help. They were clear that the label does not believe in them, the more so on the cover of the disc instead of "Jive" flaunted a "Battery Records".
. Clowns say "factor" Jive, the latest money stamped 100 000 copies of "The Riddlebox" with a homemade cover and bonus tracks and three minivans went on to win Texas, to prove to everyone: ICP record will be buying not only in Detroit
. There were no schools, no churches, no bars, no one store in Dallas and its suburbs, where they had not messed. Dozens of times they were detained by police for illegal trade, . they blocked the road police cars, . but six weeks they were able to sell there for about 15 000 copies of "The Riddlebox", . and many music shops at Jive ordered several thousand, . bringing the total number of copies sold drives up to 100 000.,
. It was then stirred Jive
. They met with Shaggy and Vaylentom and offered them every assistance in the new album. But the "Carnival" will not forgive the traitors! Then Jive reminded them of the obligations under the contract, on which they were written on the label the following four albums, but the number is not passed. The clowns were sent and went on tour, officially postponing release of his new album indefinitely.
Then in one of their roadside ditches (exaggeration, of course!) Found their Hollywood Records. The local people, it is not delving into the creativity of the group, fully endorsed the mission of ICP, promised to buy back their Jive contract, referring to their powerful owner of "Disney". They also said that Disney completely on the drum, with whom they enter into contracts and that the repertoire of musicians. It seemed a blessing for the children. They received the coveted creative freedom and decent funding. But when the fourth joker "The Great Milenko" was ready, unexpectedly advised to remove them from the three most scandalous lyrics. Clowns have been killed in such a cavalier attitude toward himself, but Shaggy, Alex and Mike talked Vaylenta go on trick. ICP still seized these songs from the disc, but planned to release them on the EP.
Then everything went according to plan. Disney has even launched in the manufacture of dolls and Shaggy Vaylenta, but they were more like a mutilated copy of Ken, a friend of Cindy. "The Great Milenko" was supposed to appear on the day of its release in all music shops of America, that it would be a triumph of carnival of dark forces, but ... At the appointed day, a large part of the edition was withdrawn from shops. How could this happen? Damn them to make out, the rich. Today, they shove you a lot of bucks, they say: nothing do not deny yourself, and tomorrow - throwing in big. Not so simple was, . sure, . but know exactly, . just before the release of the album on the company "Disney" a barrage of criticism from some Baptist organizations, . who were protesting yet another scandalously Music Project, . which was implicated Disney,
. And Hollywood Records, as an obedient soldier his commander, decided to save the last crumbs of reputation "Disney" and withdrew all. But ICP were also on alert. Night, . when they heard this sad news for myself, . Alex phoned a journalist friend, . gave him all the information on the case, . and the next day came the sensational article in the "LA Times", . which became the greatest victory of the ICP in the history of their battles with record labels,
. Information that Disney wanted to heat the great grandmother of dirty scandalously famous white rapper, went around the entire American press. Disney, of course, tried to defend himself - he says, they are completely unaware of what they sing ICP, but it's even more of their undoing, because two months ago, they forced the duo to throw out three songs because of the texts.
. Still, Disney was quite a decent company and let the ICP without any obligation on their part
. And then started a real fight between the giant labels for such a lucrative piece of underground movement, which they were unaware. Terms of the contracts were fantastic. Defeated Island Records, which is the most liked Shaggy and Vaylentu. "The Great Milenko" was quickly reprinted and booed mainstream media. No one understood the messages ICP, and the group began to bite, calling corrupt ephemeral. But the true dzhaggolo still do not remove the tape from "Milenko" from their tape recorders, and the album did not leave dvuhsotku "Billboard" 70 consecutive weeks and became triple platinum.
. Then ICP stocked Khrenovo lots of boxes with "Feygo" and together with friends and Twiztid Myzery drove off on a tour for a year
. Schedule of performances was so intense that Vaylenta gone crazy. Because of his nervous fits many shows were canceled, and his brother Joe drove in a psychiatric hospital, where he was able to calm hollow for a while, and then it put a straitjacket. Last spring, he had safely left the other dushevnonespokoynuyu situation, and not counting the dozens of small attacks, more similar to the excitement and love experiences, with his head now full order. Over the past year he had two luxury girlfriend (Andre - my sister D-Loc from KOTTONMOUTH KINGS, big buddies ICP, and the soloist of the popular American group LETTERS TO CLEO).
. As INSANE CLOWN POSSE, they continued to work in the same direction and education resource is now preparing to premiere his first film "Big Money Hustlas"
. By the way, after the success of the "clowns" to relax a bit and decided to do a favorite thing of childhood - wrestling. After some time they are fed up with it (although they still occasionally engaged in battles), but the Insane Clown Posse got a good friend and colleague, and now - wrestler Vampiro.
. In spring 1999 came the fifth album "The Amazing Jeckel Brothers", debuted at # 4 on the Billboard
. Critics have finally found a group that in spite of neglect by the media and the constant attacks, has made such a success. Insane Clown Posse began to appear on the covers of magazines, launched the production of brand name clothing, comic books and toys and had a quarrel with Eminem:)
. And what will happen after these brave guys kicked out of the pack last sixth card with a joker, I'll tell you
. They will sit and wait for the end of the world. Their work will be completed - the one who wanted, had to heed their warnings and take off our shoes in the eyes of my vices. Perhaps someday when the world will be on the brink of disaster, they want to throw out another six jokers, then another, and then dance naked on stage with Marilyn Manson, but that's another story ...
. In 2000, the world froze in anticipation of the final, sixth part of the message, which has resulted in two albums - "Bizaar" and "Bizzar"
But alas, the end of the world did not come. While ... may be a clown has a new plan ... who knows .. they bonkers
. You may ask: how could such an important matter of trust for people with nine grade education, . which have recently shamelessly steal in shops and on the streets? Actually, . These ninjas have long regretted their deed in his youth, and therefore decided to try to save others from rash,
. Perhaps when they die, their souls do not even have to go my way. They will remain part of the carnival and will become the clowns, who escorted souls to where they earned their earthly existence, and continue their mission in heaven.
