Watch ICP Talk the Juggalo March with Rolling Stone

The Insane Clown Posse has been getting on a lot of interviews lately to promote the Juggalo march on Washington goin’ down very soon. Not just interviews though. Big shit. We already posted about their interview on Sway in the Morning but now Rolling Stone has posted a video of an interview they conduct with ICP about the march and the Juggalo gang label.

They specifically speak on all the negative shit that now goes along with sporting the hatchet, having their events labeled as gang rallies, having Hot Topic drop their merchandise, trying to reach people with the message that Juggalos are not a gang and more.

This is definitely worth the watch whether you’re marching tomorrow or not.

Watch Insane Clown Posse Talk Juggalo March

Detroit-based hip hop duo and their fans are pushing back against 2011 gang classification by taking to the streets of Washington, D.C.

On Saturday, Insane Clown Posse duo Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope will lead members of their devoted fan base, known as Juggalos, in a march on Washington denouncing the FBI for labeling their following a gang.

The Detroit-based hip-hop duo are showing strength in numbers to protest the FBI’s 2011 classification of their fans as a “loosely organized hybrid gang,” and hope that their collective stance will make an impact on the public’s perception of their Juggalo subculture and fandom.

“What would anybody do? How would anybody fight the gang label? Obviously, the FBI don’t give a fuck,” Violent J told Rolling Stone. “They’re not gonna cave in as they see it. All we can do is hopefully reach the people of the country. How are we gonna legally, peacefully, reach these people? The way it’s always been, is you do a March on Washington that makes as much noise as you can.”

Shaggy 2 Dope further explained that the gang classification has impacted fans when it comes to “longer terms in jail, losing their kids in custody battles, getting fired from jobs, not being able to get into the military [and] on and on.”

The band say they have faced discrimination in organizing shows, meet-and-greets and their annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

“You wanna call us something, call us a family, because a lot of us don’t have a family and all we’ve got is each other,” Violent J said. “This shit is real for us, man.”
