Quotes

  • People call us anti-gay for our lyrics all the time. That’s lies, all lies. I’ve had many intimate relationships with juggalos as well as juggalettes, so you know I’m not judging. True clowns don’t judge.
  • I’ll be quicker to kick an ass before I’ll ever kiss one.

Facts

  • Son, Joseph Bruce II, born January 2005.
  • In 1998, Eminem approached him with a flier to promote his “Slim Shady LP” release party, which read that ICP might make an appearance there. ICP had never met, or heard of Eminem at the time. He declined the “invitation”, and Eminem took this as a personal insult and thus the battle between Eminem and ICP began.
  • Released an autobiography entitled “Behind the Paint” in 2003.
  • Favorite bands/artists include Prince, Michael Jackson, and Pearl Jam.
  • In all of his CDs he gives credit to “the Butterfly”
  • Had to pay a total of $100,000 out of his own pocket to complete the budget of the film Big Money Hustlas (2000), which he wrote.
  • Turned down a role in Prison Song (2001) as a bigoted prison guard because he did not want to play a racist.

Trademarks

  • Sprays the audience with Faygo soda at their shows
