They are a rap duo from Detroit ( whos stage names are Violent-J and Shaggy-2-Dope ), who have made themselves infamous for a number of reasons
1) thier striking appearance
2) thier fanbase
3) thier wigger-ness
lets look at these reasons in detail.
1) The icp wear face paint, a base coating of pure white all over thier faces, and then their respective patterns painted on in black, sometimes with an extra colour to match thier outfits. For a while, both of them had long dread locks aswell. Nowadays, Violent-J has bleached spiked hair, while shaggy has braids.
2) Thier fanbase (refered to as "Juggalos" for guys, and "Juggalettes" for chicks) are the biggest reason this band is as hated as they are. Juggalos and Juggalettes are all dipsh!ts... thats what it boils down to. You can be damn sure that anyone who refers to themself by this term, is a total loser. Juggalos will wear face paint, all day. Its one thing to wear the paint for an ICP event, but Juggalos will walk around all day with the stuff on.
They are all incredibly defensive when it comes to icp, which is admirable, if they didnt have the debating skills of a head of lettuce. For an example of a Juggalo's argumentative skills, see below
There is nothing wrong with ICP, but the average member of thier fanbase is a moron, which in turn will reflect on the band themselves
3) Shaggy and J both talk like a pair of wiggers, and really, they are...
Dont just hate them because its the trendy thing to do. I suggest getting a copy of one or two of thier albums, because to be brutally honest, they are a good band...
im not a Juggalo, I would never dress like every day is marilyn manson's funeral, i would never wear six litres of face paint, nor do i walk around giving out about society and normal people.
but credit where credit is due, the ICP has some kickass songs. And from what ive heard, they put on a great live show.
the ICP also has strong ties with the world of professional wrestling ( the two of them have appeared in "the big 3" of ECW, WCW and the WWf/WWE, they also periodicaly run thier own promotion, JCW ), and they have thier own production company too ( psychopathic records, or something like that )
to sum up, the ICP is a rap duo. They are pretty goddamn good, but thier fans are all morons...
GO DECIDE FOR YOURSELF
