With the launch of the Year of the Juggalo, we are proud to announce that our homie Lyte (formerly known as Young Lyte) is now an official member of the Psychopathic roster! Already well known in the Juggalo world for his fierce lyrical and rhyming skills, Lyte will be dropping his debut album on Psychopathic within the next few months, bringing a whole new level of flavor to the Hatchet! Welcome to the family, Lyte!
The entire Psychopathic Records family -- ICP, ABK, Big Hoodoo, Blahzay Roze, DJ Clay, and our newest artst, Lyte--have a special New Year's gift for our Juggalo family to welcome all of you to The Year of the Juggalo. Download this brand-fuckin'-new track from the WHOLE ROSTER, "Hurricane of Diamonds," as Psychopathic's official "Happy New Year" greeting to our Juggalo brothers and sisters! Whoop whoop!
As the Dark Carnival Games Con (DCG Con) approaches like rolling thunder, get ready for your wig to start inch-worming around on your skull piece like a slinky, when the website (www.dcgcon.com) launches on January 6th at 9pm! This site will fully detail all the flavor of this 3-day ultimate gaming experience, where you will be able to enjoy countless games to play and challenging tournaments to compete in…But what about if you want to host a gaming event of your own? Well, that’s one of the dopest things about the DCG Con, because along with the numerous sanctioned Psychopathic events, there has been plenty of space set aside for any ninja to host their own gaming event (anything from D&D to Monopoly)! All you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, and a brief description of the event you want to host. Someone will then call you to discuss everything in more detail. If your idea is selected to become an official event at DCG Con, then it will be included in the program and website, along with a brief description written by you. What are you waiting for?!? You can host your very own event and make this con even more epic then it’s already going to be! Whoop Whoop!
As many of you may know, ICP’s longtime friend, homie, and JCW wrestling icon the Rude Boy recently underwent triple bypass heart surgery. He’s in a lot of pain and suffering but is taking it day by day and is definitely on the road to recovery. However, as anyone who has ever had to endure the staleness of staying in a hospital for several days can tell you,
THAT SHIT IS EXPENSIVE! And that’s why on February 24 at the Majestic, ICP will be presenting The Rude Boy Benefit Show WITH ALL PROCEEDS BEING DONATED TO HELP PAY FOR RUDE BOY’S MEDICAL EXPENSES AND HELP HIM CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY WHILE HE IS UNABLE TO WORK. This is the only show where you’ll able to see both Violent J and Shaggy do full separate sets at the same place. There will be several special guest performers including Zug Izland, DJ Clay and a full JCW show as well. Tickets for this very special and emotional show can be purchased here: http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?eventId=7077675&pl=majestic&dispatch=loadSelectionData

Two Clowns. Violent J. Shaggy 2 Dope. Together they're known as the Insane Clown Posse. But THIS time they're hitting the road seperately...but at the same time.
Let me explain...
J and Shaggs are each embarking on a short solo tour, playing the same cities and venues days apart. Make sense. So, say you go see Violent J's solo show at your nearest venue one week. About a week later, tha Southwest Strangla himself, Shaggy 2 Dope will be performing a solo set at that same venue. Dig?
Tickets just went on sale today and more days will be added later. All additional dates will be posted on the tour page of www.insaneclownposse.com
But for now, here are the dates and cities that will go on sale this Friday, 11/25
