Ranker.com said:Fans of the Detroit rap-duo known as the Insane Clown Posse are infamous for their elaborate clown makeup and their rowdy behavior at concerts. Known as Juggalos and Juggalettes, these people have managed to build an entire community around a single band, and that community has developed a rather poor reputation among mainstream Americans. In 2011, Juggalos were officially designated as a "loosely-organized hybrid gang" by the FBI, further solidifying their unsavory rep. Because of their overwhelmingly negative portrayal in the media, a lot of Juggalos feel like their eccentric family is being misrepresented.
A short summary of ICP and Juggalo culture for those unfamiliar with it. ICP are the poster children of horrorcore rap; a genre of hip-hop where the lyrics are generally focused on gore, murder, and horror far before dark SoundCloud rap ever took hold of the music industry. I'm surprised we haven't had a thread before because while there are some great artists, the majority of them are shitty and cringy.
On top of that, for the past year or so, Psychopathic Records and ICP have been struggling to keep artists on their label because they keep causing personal drama and fucking them over. They often later sign with Twiztid and their record label, creating a rivalry between the similar rap duos.
A good example was when Violent J and his wife split and he fucked a random groupie half his age, signed her to his record label, and dropped her once their relationship ended:
They did succeed in launching an entire subculture, though, and several shit indie rappers are on YouTube trying to emulate their success. Feast your ears on some of the worst music you'll ever hear.

This is... Honestly my favorite of the bad ones?:
The aforementioned chick who fucked Violent J for a record deal:
This one has been going around Reddit for a while, kinda feel bad for her but LOL:
*HORRORCORE THAT'S ACTUALLY GOOD*
Don't let the juggalo culture ruin horrorcore in general, though, because there are some artists who I feel are genuinely talented and tend to stay away from the edgy clown shit. ICP didn't even invent the genre: Three 6 Mafia did, if anything.
