ICP is good.
Okay, since there's a word limit imposed on these things that keeps me from actually conveying intelligent thought because "words are haaarrrrd", I guess I'll just keep this as brief and simple as possible, m'kay?
Are they good? Yes.
Are they the best? Not nearly.
Why are they good? Because they're creative, funny, self-aware, and more intelligent than recent memes would give them credit for.
Why are they not so good? Because on a scale of 1 to 10 in rapping talent, they clock in at about a 5 or 5.5 on average and a 7 or 8 only on their absolute best days.
Do you recommend them? Yes.
Why? Because you should expand your horizons beyond the rap you hear on the radio. ICP is so fundamentally different from nearly every other type of rap out there, that you can't really compare them thematically to any other rappers. Listen to them. If you like 'em, great. If you don't, also great. Just don't be a cock about it.
But what about Juggalos? What about
them? You shouldn't judge an artist based on their fanbase. The majority of humans are stupid, therefore it stands to reason that the majority of any group is going to be just as stupid. If you can't put up with Juggalos, just don't go to any concerts. Simple as that. Stop whining about it.
Are you just kissing ass because you're a Juggalo? No. ICP aren't even my favorite rappers. I'm a Juggalo because they got me into rap in the first place and showed me that it could be more than just pointless ego-stroking, and because I agree with their messages.
Will you just calm the heck down already? I will when I get the chance to write an intelligent review without having my speech capacity stifled.
Can I leave now? Yes. This review is over. Goodbye.
