SPIN Interviews Coolio about songs from 1994 including ICP’s “Chicken’ Huntin'”!

Before I start, yes, I realize this is a 5 year-old article.  I did some checking though, and it looks like we didn’t cover it back in October of 2014.  It’s a pretty dope throwback, and Coolio shows ICP and Juggalos a lot of love!

Back in 2014, SPIN spoke with Coolio on the 20th anniversary of Gangsta’s Paradise, and asked him about other songs that dropped that year, and the artists who recorded them.  They go through songs from Nirvana, 2pac, Elton John, Boyz II Men, and more!  They even talk about the Insane Clown Posse since the original version of “Chicken Huntin'” dropped that year.  Here’s what was said about the wicked clowns.

From SPIN.com:

7) Insane Clown Posse, “Chicken Huntin’”

[Instantly, with a knowing smile.]Insane Clown Posse. I’ve always been a supporter. I didn’t understand why Eminem didn’t wanna do a song with them. He didn’t like the clown thing. I thought it was fucking brilliant. I wish I had thought of it. My backing group would’ve been Coolio & the Fucking Killer Clowns.

Do you consider yourself a Juggalo?

Fuck yeah.

What does that mean?

Family. Let’s say I’m in Philly and I need a place to sleep and something to eat. If I find some Juggs, that night I’m gonna eat good, I’m gonna sleep good, and I’m gonna get high. They take care of each other. It’s more than I can say about most Crips and Bloods.

How doesthe Gathering of the Juggalos compare to a radio rap festival?

Dude, the Gathering is an animal of its own. It’s like an old-school hippie festival on steroids. Or crack, depending on the day. It’s off the chain. Good times with good people. Turn the tape off if you wanna hear the rest of the story.
