As is this case with most of our society’s stranger fixations, Insane Clown Posse is little understood outside of its core Juggalo fan base. To the average onlooker, or anyone who might somehow stumble upon pictures of ICP or Juggalo pics might have no idea as to why white rappers painted as wicked clowns are rapping, and rapping very successfully at that. To start, where does the wicked clown paint come from?
The History of ICP’s Wicked Clown Paint
It’s no secret that the wicked clown paint seen in pictures of ICP (whether they’re Juggalo pics or media pics) is responsible for much of ICP’s fame and fortune. The act would not have caught on nearly as well if they were just two normal rappers from Detroit without the infamous wicked clown paint.
Before ICP stood for Insane Clown Posse, it stood for Inner City Posse, which was the rap group Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J were a part of before it went defunct and they formed the new ICP. This was before there were any Juggalo pics or pictures of ICP wearing the wicked clown paint. That comes next.
The old ICP decided to name the new ICP after a dream in which Violent J saw an Insane Clown running around the streets of Delray, a neighborhood in southern Detroit. Not only did this dream lead the group to name its new band Insane Clown Posse, but they also decided to don wicked clown paint after the success their old hype man had doing the same.
It’s crazy to think about this one dream having such an impact on the world. Because of it, not only has the Insane Clown Posse gone on to conquer the horror rap landscape, but Juggalo pics and other pictures of ICP as wicked clowns have gone viral. In fact, it’s next to impossible to find a Juggalo pic or picture of ICP anywhere without Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope wearing the wicked clown paint.
Pictures of ICP doing other things while still maintaining the wicked clown persona are everywhere. For example, pictures of ICP giving artist seminars to fans, pictures of ICP performing, and even pictures of ICP giving interviews are not hard to find. If you’re interested in the take Juggalo fans have on the ICP paint, just Google “Juggalo pics” and you’ll get tons of results. Some Juggalo pics show an exact imitation of the real wicked clown paint, and others take liberty with their design.
Pictures of ICP or Juggalo pics, one thing is for sure: you’ll never be let down looking at pictures of ICP or Juggalo pics on the Internet. Fun, artistic, terrifying, you name the adjective and you can find clown paint paint to match!
