Direct from Mr. X... It's the Hatchet Herald
What’s up, Juggalos?
In case you haven’t noticed by the giant sweltering lumps on your face there’s a motherfucking hurricane of diamonds blowing through the Juggalo World with no trace of ending anytime soon. There’s so much freshness happening this year, in 2017, that it’s almost overwhelming.
We’ve got Solo tours, ICP’s 17 Tour, The 17 Deeds of Love, DCG Con, Juggalo Weekend in Florida, Juggalo Weekend in Canada, The Gathering, The Juggalo March, New albums from every artist on Psychopathic Records, and the list goes on…
But this week in the Hatchet Herald we’re going to be focusing on ICP’s Solo Tours, Juggalo Weekend, The 17 Deeds of Love, and the brand new Psychopathic Psypher Video dropping very soon.
ICP’s Back on the road……
It’s about that time again ninjas…. We’re now just a few short weeks away from ICP’s SHORT SOLO SIDE SHOW SPECTACULAR TOUR. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are stepping back out on the road, but only this time they’re going their separate ways as they embark on 2 simultaneous, short and intimate solo tours. But don’t you worry there, turkey neck. The wicked clowns ain’t ever breaking up, they’re just spreading some extra flavor all over your stale bitch ass! As they travel to and from JUGGALO WEEKEND in Florida you’ll be able to catch them live as they perform at the same venues just days apart from one another. Every venue is offering combo ticket packs so check out www.PsychopathicRecords.com or your local music venue for more details on that.
Did someone say Juggalo Day weekend? I sure as fuck just did!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few days. Or maybe you’ve had your face stuck under a portly woman’s jelly filled butt cheeks? You’ve definitely seen the new bombastic line up. And what else can I say except Absolutely-Fucking-Devastating. For the first time ever ICP will perform both Tunnel of Love and The Amazing Jeckel Brothers, in their entirety. Night 1, get your bowties and jiggy colorful suits ready and come witness ICP’s Triple X Love Fest where they’ll be performing Tunnel of Love from front to back plus all the other classic love songs we’ve all grown to love. And if that didn’t make your panties wet enough? Night 2, come watch in terror as Jake and Jack juggle the fate of your very own tortured soul as ICP tell the tale of the mighty 5th jokers card at the one and only Amazing Jeckel Brothers Show. That’s two INCREDIBLE shows, never before seen anywhere and who knows if they’ll be witnessed ever again? Also at Juggalo Weekend you’ll see with your beady little eyes JCW, Sewerside, Lyte, Blahzay Roze, Kottonmouth Kings, Big Hoodoo, DJ Clay, Stiches, & Anybody Killa. FUCKING CLASSIC! And don’t worry Juggalos, if you already bought tickets for the prior lineup, you now have a second chance to stuff some more of your hard earned money in our pockets when you buy them all over again. I’m just kidding ninja, they will be honored at the door. And since you’re already down in Florida… Why not take a quick road trip up to Jacksonville and catch the wicked clowns yet again? But this time they’re coming with the spectacular and amazing Riddle Box Show!!! Great fucking idea!!! We’ll see you there.
In the ashes of Juggalo Weekend ICP will continue their solo tours as they make their way back to Detroit for the Rude Boy Benefit Show and the very final Riddle Box Show ever performed on American soil. We’ve said it before, but this is fucking it ninjas. This is the very last and final time you’ll be able to catch the Riddle Box Show without leaving the country. So just in case you were kidnapped by surf ninjas? Or possibly held captive by an overly promiscuous pack of polar bears? And you missed Juggalo Weekend in Florida… You’ll get another chance at freshness back in Detroit.

The 17 Deeds of Love…..
In case you didn’t know, the 17 Deeds of Love is made up of 17 different charity events Psychopathic Records will be hosting during 2017, the first of which was a HUGE fucking success and took place at the Token Lounge on January 7th. Juggalos packed in that bitch like your momma trying to stuff her saggy ass tits back in her bra after a Bon Jovi concert. Not only did we sell that bitch out, but we packed in at least another 100 ninjas when the fire marshal wasn’t looking.
The whole night was completely off the hook! The lucky Juggalos in attendance were treated with special sets from the entire Psychopathic Records roster. I’m talking about….. Lyte, DJ Clay, Big Hoodoo, Anybody Killa, and the kings of the wicked shit the Insane Clown Posse. The only staleness was Blahzay Roze was unable to attend due to a prior commitment, and she was greatly missed. But regardless of that bone, the evening went without a hitch. But this was no regular concert, this was a straight the fuck up Juggalo Party. All the stars were mingling in the crowd throughout the night, and even Violent J himself threw down his mic at the end of ICP’s set and dove head first into the sea of Juggalos swimming his way straight to the bar. He barely made it out alive!
And let’s not forget the most important part of the night….. All profits went directly to The Michigan Humane Society. And after all was said and done, we raised just over $4000 that night and now all the cute little animals can sleep safely for a few more weeks thanks to all the Juggalos who came out to support.
The second of 17 Deeds of love, (which I already mentioned briefly above) is taking place Friday February 24th at The Majestic Theatre in Detroit Michigan. This VERY SPECIAL show is definitely one that’s close to our hearts. I’m talked about THE RUDE BOY BENEFIT SHOW. I think it’s safe to say The Rude Boy has become a Juggalo icon and household name. The man is a Living Legend, JCW All Star, Psychopathic Homie, and one of the original members of the Inner City Posse.
Over the last few month’s Rude Boys health took a major turn for the worst and recently he underwent triple bypass surgery. During this time, not only has Rude Boy not been able to work and provide for his family but his wife has also taken time off to stay home and help her husband during his lengthy recovery. With medical bills stacking and no source of income coming in, Rudy and his family have really been put on hard times.
So now it’s time to give back to a man that has given so much without ever asking for anything in return. Rude Boy puts on countless benefit shows, as well multiple charity drives collecting everything from school supplies, to winter coats and clothing, to Christmas presents and beyond. He’s the kind of man that will give you the shirt off his back without thinking twice. So it wasn’t even a question of if? But instead a question of when? Long time Homies and Best Friends ICP and Psychopathic Records would step in to help.
Coming live and in effect on February 24th for the first time ever you witness BOTH Violent J, and Shaggy 2 Dope perform SOLO SETS under the same roof, on the same night! You’ll get to hear classic ICP solo tracks that you’ve never heard live at a standard ICP performance. Never before has ICP ever done something like this, but for their brother the Rude Boy? They’ll pulling out all the stops.
And on top of all that, for the first time ever… Both and only rock bands to ever be signed to Psychopathic Records will be in the house to perform and support their friend Rude Boy on the very same stage. I’m talking about ZUG IZLAND, and reuniting for this special show, MOTOWN RAGE. It’s been a long time since either of these bands have blessed the stage with their presence, making this a night not to miss.
On top of that we’ve got JUGGALO CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING as well as many more surprise guests. And for all you out of town Ninjas why not make it a weekend? Because the following night at the very same venue will be INSANE CLOWN POSSE performing for the very last time in the United States, the mighty RIDDLE BOX SHOW. That’s 2 nights of back to back freshness that you do not want to miss out on.
New Psychopathic Psypher…..
I’m not in a gang… You’re not in a gang… But since the rest of the country seems to have a hard time believing that ridiculous accusation, what better theme and title for the new psypher than “IF WE WERE A GANG?”
Every artist featured in this video has just signed a brand spanking new 3 album contract and will be releasing new material in 2017. We are bigger, stronger and prouder than ever to represent the Hatchet and the Juggalo world. Not even a solar eclipse could stop our shine right now.
This is absol-fuckin-lutely our biggest, most powerful psypher to date. To showcase their individuality as people and musicians, each artist was filmed individually in their own distinct environment. I’m talking about Violent J in Picker Forest, Shaggy 2 Dope and DJ Clay on Zug Island, Anybody Killa at the Native Funk Indian Reservation, Big Hoodoo on 7 Mile’s Westside, Blahzay Roze in Lewiston, Maine, and Lyte at his trailer park in Flint where the water’s always clean, like Billy Bill’s assault record.
Two weeks ago we wrapped up the “If We Were a Gang” video, after shooting the final scene in Detroit’s most notorious afterhours spot. You have to be in the know just to find this place, which doesn’t look like much from outside. But once inside you’ll travel down an old rusted freight elevator, straight to the underground. This is a place filled with all kinds of vices and debauchery, offering everything from alcohol to whatever your wicked heart desires. The crooked police are even in on it too and work security on their off hours. Since they’re only open from 2am - ??? We were able to sneak in early one afternoon and shoot the final scene featuring the entire Psychopathic Family. And of course like always, mad Juggalos came out to represent the hatchet. All in all, it was a very fresh day.
Well that’s gonna be it for this week ninjas…..
Just one thing to always remember… If you’re girl has a nutsack…. Just because you tuck it up her butt hole, doesn’t mean it’s not still there.
Much Clown Love,
