ICP: And God Created Controversy

I don't normally post my opinions on this blog, preferring to keep it more as a resume of music interviews, but a friend recently sent me this article and I felt a need to write about it.

Let's just get the elephant out of the room, shall we? This is about Insane Clown Posse, a joke of a rap duo that has become an even bigger joke to the world with the release of their song "Miracles." Now as I read this, I couldn't help but laugh throughout.

I didn't really know how to respond to my friend about it. See, I only had a few minutes left before my next class and had to type to him with a phone. I was going to first respond with "This must be a joke," followed by quoting the fuck out of it with some of the funniest lines. No interviewer could be that into ICP writing for The Guardian. Then it got so ridiculous that I was going to respond with different emote faces because words failed me.

But then...

Then I got to the end. The part with the depression. Suddenly, I, I just don't know. This duo is considered the worst in the world, and now they know it. From multiple sources. And they still keep going for their fans. They're complete dingbats who don't know right from left, but they still have that urge to be "deep," and they struggle with all their might to do so. They're both suffering from anxiety attacks, and yet they still do upbeat shows for their fans.

The world hates Insane Clown Posse. The entire world. We hate them because they're stupid, but they never wanted to be this stupid. We pick on them for struggling to find the magic in mundane things. To them, it really is a miracle. They are children in adult bodies, and the world hates them for that. Suddenly, I have an ounce of respect for these two...whatever they are.
