Insane Clown Posse
When Insane Clown Posse (ICP) emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit's underground music scene in the early 90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists — Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope — would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of "conventional" retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans endearingly called "Juggalos" and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.
Over the course of a career spanning three decades, ICP repeatedly spat in the faces of industry experts and popular convention, building what is now recognized as the "Dark Carnival," a mythological community shrouded more with speculation than understanding. Based on the idea of an afterlife in which souls await their ultimate destiny in heaven or hell, the Dark Carnival was revealed in a series of ICP productions that vaulted the duo to uncharted industry heights in music, films, wrestling and festivals. ICP's underground messaging was led by Psychopathic Records, whose rally call of "defiance" prompted independent success amid an industry packed with short-lived, industry-manufactured artists with fickle fan bases.
Over the past 30 years, ICP has released more than 23 albums, including more than 10 RIAA certifications and the Billboard Top 200's longest running hip-hop record. Their latest release, "Bang! Pow! Boom!" debuted as Billboard's No. 4 album in September 2009.
Despite ICP's astounding album success, the true essence of the Dark Carnival emerges in the duo's live performances, perhaps best-known for huge stage sets, multiple costume changes, character extras and the trademark spraying of hundreds of liters of Faygo on the twisted mass of painted Juggalos in the audience.
R.A. The Rugged Man
Hip-Hop MC from Suffolk County Long Island, USA. Affiliated with Rawkus Records and other NYC underground labels.
With a unique,raspy voice, powerful punchlines and sometimes twisted story telling; F.Dux has certainly taken over the underground rap game. From hangin' with homies on the block, to working with some of the biggest names in the underground scene, Dux has proven that he can hang with the best of em'.
In 2007 Dux joined forces with the Insane Clown Posse for the Tempest Tour which include
d Dux, Twiztid and legendary rap group The X Clan. Performing in front of thousands everynight, the feedback from the crowd was insane , Dux now knew how close he really was to stardom.
In 2008 Dux kicked doors down when he was asked to be on the "Tunnel Runners" CD, a Hatchet House release.With the song "Die 2nite", Dux contributed an official banger to the project which made its way to the "Top 25 Rap Albums" on the Billboard charts.
In 2009 Dux released an album with Maniac, a South Dakota MC , whose rhymes were very similiar to his.With Maniac also producing all the tracks on the LP, Dux laid all the hooks to this masterpiece that would then be called "Daywalkers : Dead by Dawn". This 19 track disc has sold close to 2,000 copies in the Midwest and Southeast alone.
Dux's most recent release "Welcome to Granville" shows his diverse style, from street anthems like "In My Town" Feat Jelly Roll (Wyte Music/Hypnotized Minds) and bangers like "S.U.S" which shows Dux lyrical & metaphorical flows. WTG is Dux 3rd project and is his best work to this day.
And to top off the summer of 2011, F. DUX rocked the stage to a sold out crowd with non other than Tech N9ne, a multi- platinum recording artist who is known for his insane stage antics and amazing performances!
Dux continues to take over Nortn Carolina & the Southeast with monsterous live shows and merch booth that seems to always be surrounded by fans. His Low Life Movement has grown considerably with street teams all over the world and a fan base from Seattle to the ATL.Theres only two words that defy the meaning of Hip Hop and his name is....F.DUX!
