Are you down with the clown?
We hope so, because today Jack and J. J. tackle Juggalos. We dive into the history of Insane Clown Posse, and explore how the clown-and-horror-themed rap duo inspired such a devoted following. We also cover their feud with Eminem, their epic fight in a WaffleHouse, and Juggalos’ designation as a gang according to the FBI. By the end, we’ll have covered the good and bad of the Juggalo family.
