In support of their latest album, Fearless Fred Fury (which is, obviously, the “fourth Joker Card in the second Deck of the Dark Carnival”), Insane Clown Posse will be pulling through Cincinnati this week.
The infamous Rap duo of Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J will be joined by Rittz, Mushroomhead, Mac Lethal and Kissing Candice for the show. ICP had a run of packed, Faygo-soaked shows at Bogart’s over the past couple of decades (in 2017, they played The Venue Cincinnati), including one in 2005 that was reviewed for the UK’s NME by yours truly.
ICP recently dropped (via World Star Hip Hop) a new “Psypher” titled “8 Ways To Die,” featuring Three 6 Mafia co-founder DJ Paul, Stitches, Esham, Mac Lethal, Ouija Macc and Cage. In other recent ICP news that has confused the press, Shaggy and J apparently did an acoustic set at South By Southwest.
In February, ICP released a music video for the single "Fury."
Local fans should mark their calendars beyond this week’s tour stop — 2019’s Gathering of the Juggalos is coming up this summer and it’s taking place only about a three-hour car ride from Cincinnati. The 20th-annual GotJ is set for Lawrence County Recreational Park near Bloomington, Indiana July 31-Aug. 3.
