Celebrating 20 years together, Insane Clown Posse boast 20 albums to their credit and nearly 12 million copies sold worldwide.  ICP emerged from Detroit’s underground music scene in the early 90’s, with a hardcore hip-hop style composed of musical stories, a unique mix of controversial and cartoonish lyrics.  The face-painted duo of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have smashed through the ceiling of the music industry’s expectations, amassing their own dedicated legion of millions of fans and releasing a steady stream of albums, compilations, music videos, wrestling promotions, films, outrageous events, and signature merchandise. Insane Clown Posse’s annual Gathering of the Juggalos has grown to become one of America’s most eclectic and celebrated summer music festivals.
