Once upon a time I found a strange single EP called Hokus Pokus (headhunterz edition) and low and behold 20 years later I'm listening to an audio book by violent J. what started as mere curiosity spiralled into obsession as I was absorbed into the dark carnival. If you are a juggalo, you know what I mean. This book brought back so many feelings and emotions that I felt when I first discovered icp and their story. Thank you icp for all the incredible and fresh nostalgia. it answers many questions, explores J's upbringing, details the struggle, the success, the ups and downs, all while inspiring you to do the same. Failure is NOT an option.
I could listen to this book all day. I couldn't WAIT to go out for a walk or grab a bus or hop in my car. sadly I completed it but god Damn am I gonna listen to it again!
this book is Inspiring, real, beautiful, crazy, hilarious, sad, exciting, and very VERY FRESH
Thank you J amd Shaggy.
Much Irish clown love.
This is the best book I have ever read and now heard. Listen as Violent J recalls his whole life in great detail. Pure honesty and insight lies within. The man is a genius, what an incredible story.
"Good read even if you are not a juggalo"
Yes, its a great story about the struggles before ICP got famous and to some it might be inspiring, I recommend this to anyone.
I got to say the time they were on the road and almost got killed by men in black robes, scary but a great story.
This is a great example of don't judge a book by its cover, just because its from ICP don't mean it's not a great story, love every single minute of it. All though the way Violent J talked was a little annoying sometimes, but it was worth it.
"whoop whoop "
AWESOME AS FUCK AND WOULD TOTTALY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY JUGGALO WHOOP WHOOP MUCH CLOWN LOVE
WHOOP WHOOP MCL , Great books great story answered so many questions looking forward to the next one
"this is wig splitting greatness"
no better way to hear a book read then by the author. puts love and passion behind it
"Best book I have ever heard in my life."
I said it all in the subject line. Best book I have ever heard in my life. I love it beyond words. that's the truth.
"You don't have to be a juggalo"
For sure, not for everyone. But if you question the rough, ill negativity surrounding ICP, read this. Better if you are a later convert like me, but V Jay reveals and underscores why I love ICP. Redemption baby. Finding faith and light in the dark places most people don't notice, are too pretentious to look. 17 is the key.
You don't need my review. Listen to it. It speaks for itself. Fan or not, this story is amazing.
"whoop whoop I love this book so much"
I get so much hope from this book I'm glad for the butterfly.violent j and shaggy 2 dopes story inspired me.
I have about 200 audio books and this is probably my favorite now. WHOOP WHOOP!
"Great book even for non-ICP fans"
As someone who reads a lot of memoirs, this book was extremely well done. Even though it's from 2003, they've updated it in 2016 and done a LOT of ad-libbing and adding on to things. There might be slow parts but Violent J does a good job of telling you "you can just skip these if you don't care".
There is a LOT of cursing, so if that sort of thing offends you or is hard to look past this might not be for you.
All in all I really appreciated the honesty and effort that went into creating this audiobook. I'm not really a fan of ICP's music but I respect them as artists.
