ICP originally formed as a GangstaRap group called "Inner City Posse," derived from the name of a Detroit gang formed by Bruce. The music group's increasing popularity resulted in the gang becoming the target of growing violence, leading its members to abandon gang life and adopt a Music/GetoBoys-esque horror rap style. The success of a former clown painted hype man and a dream Bruce had involving a clown running around in Delray [[note]] the most depressed and blighted area of Detroit, at its southern tip; currently slated to be largely demolished to make way for a bridge to UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} [[/note]], led the group to adopt the name Insane Clown Posse.

* [[MeanCharacterNiceActor Mean Clown Personas, Nice Rappers]]: Violent J and Shaggy are well-known for portraying bloodthirsty MonsterClown characters, but in reality they're actually very nice to their fans and donate to and promote charities and fundraisers to help the poor(see their [[Awesome/InsaneClownPosse Awesome page]] for more details on that). They also love their moms very much and, [[MemeticMutation if certain videos are anything to go by]], absolutely adore their children. In fact, the pair came clean [[http://www.columbian.com/news/2010/jun/04/insane-clown-posse/ in a 2010]] interview that they're actually ''evangelical Christians''.[[note]] Fans had known that since the song "Thy Unveiling" on the ''The Wraith: Shangri-La'' album came out in 2002.[[/note]]
* TheMerch: ICP and Psychopathic are known for this.

Consisting primarily of two people, Violent J (Joseph Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (Joseph Utsler), Insane Clown Posse are a HipHop group and ProfessionalWrestling tag team from UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}, and the cofounders of the independent record label, Creator/PsychopathicRecords. Their music is generally placed in the "{{Horrorcore}}" category, and is focused heavily around CircusOfFear elements. They're also occasionally subject to FanDumb. Of course, some of their detractors [[FanHater aren't]] [[HateDumb much better]], either. Fans that are not FanDumb prefer to be called {{Juggalo}}s, but since some of their FanDumb call themselves this as well, their HateDumb tends to lump all their fans together.

ICP originally formed as a GangstaRap group called "Inner City Posse", derived from the name of a Detroit gang formed by Bruce. The music group's increasing popularity resulted in the gang becoming the target of growing violence, leading its members to abandon gang life and adopt a Music/GetoBoys-esque horror rap style. The success of a former clown painted hype man and a dream Bruce had involving a clown running around in Delray[[note]]the most depressed and blighted area of Detroit, at its southern tip; currently slated to be largely demolished to make way for a bridge to Canada[[/note]], led the group to adopt the name Insane Clown Posse.

After releasing an album, ''Carnival of Carnage'', original member John Kickjazz quit the group, and ICP became a duo. The release of the EP ''Beverly Kills 50187'' and album ''Ringmaster'' gained ICP an increasing group of dedicated followers. The larger distribution of ''Riddle Box'' and ''The Great Milenko'' increased awareness of ICP, turning the group into one of the biggest underground rap acts in the country. During this time, a feud was started between ICP and fellow Detroit rapper Music/{{Eminem}}, which has since died down.

ICP have also been the subject of a number of parodies, including a music video parody on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. Their albums ''The Amazing Jeckel Brothers'', ''Bang! Pow! Boom!'', and ''The Mighty Death Pop!'' have all peaked at #4 on the ''Billboard 200''.
