On the Official ICP Facebook, they made a big announcement today concerning this year’s lineup for the Gathering of the Juggalos!

They were announced as the “Icons of Horrorcore”, and includes separate performances by:

  • Cage

That’s a pretty impressive announcement in itself!  I’m more surprised that Psychopathic and Necro worked out a deal, but am glad that it happened!

Not much later, we got the full details from InsaneClownPosse.com.  Check that out below:

Cage, Brotha Lynch Hung, September Mourning, and Necro Added to the Gathering Lineup!

Psychopathic Auction Items

25 Years of Psychopathic History Photo Album

We spent hours and hours digging through boxes of old photos from the last 25 years of Psychopathic Records’ history, pulling out gem after gem… This photo album is PACKED with over 150 one-of-a-kind photos, featuring the Dog Beats era, the Axe Murder Boyz, MC Breed, The Great Milenko era, Esham, Zug Izland, old staff photos, The Wraith era, Anybody Killa, the Riddle Box era, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, the Carnival of Carnage era, Twiztid, and more! If it happened in the last 25 years of Psychopathic, it might just be in this book. Most of these pictures have never been seen by the general public until now. This is your only chance to truly own a piece of Psychopathic Records History!

Bang Pow Boom Promotional Banner

Measuring roughly 4×5 feet, this banner was used to promote the first joker’s card of the second deck, “Bang! Pow! Boom!,” which came out September 1, 2009. This was used at various shows and events during the months previous to the album’s release. You can surprise your parents by hanging this fresh-ass banner above the fireplace in your family room!

Dog Beats Test Press Vinyl

This is the album that started it all….This was the very first album ICP ever recorded in a music studio. After getting snaked for thousands of dollars by local music producer Chuck Miller, ICP walked away with their now classic album “Dog Beats”. More than 25 years later, this album was finally pressed to vinyl just in time to celebrate the triumphant return of the Inner City Posse this August, when the Inner City Posse will make a one-time performance in honor of their lost brother and third clown, John Kickjazz. Since this test pressing is one-of-a-kind, it now takes the reins as one of rarest pieces of Inner City Posse items known to man.

Gathering of the Juggalos 2016 Uncut Ticket Set

To celebrate the 17th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos, we kept a very small handful of uncut tickets sheets. This is a great display piece for any Juggalo to remember the Gathering of Gatherings. This lot includes the following 5 Framed & Uncut Ticket Sheets: General Admission, RV & Trailer Pass, Car Pass, Big Ballers, & Psychopathic All-Star Experience. This is a one-of-a-kind set, and great display piece for all Juggalos alike!

Hatchet Flag Banner

Measuring roughly 3×5 feet, this banner was used back in 2012 on stage during in the now infamous American Psychos Tour. This banner is the perfect size for any collector or Juggalo who just wants to show his undying love for his Country and Psychopathic Family.

Huge Hand Painted Hell’s Pit Artwork

Origin unknown, this HUGE painting has been hanging up on the walls at Psychopathic Records for over the last 10 years. This is an amazing hand-painted piece that features the album cover art for the darkest, most wicked album ICP has ever created….Hell’s Pit! This thing is huge, measuring roughly 2×2 feet—you’re going to need a big trunk to get this bad boy home. But once you do, it will be an incredible centerpiece for any room in your house.

Insane Clown Posse Riddle Box Show Hockey Jerseys

This lot features (2) one-of-a-kind hockey jerseys that were created for ICP to wear during one of the last Riddle Box Shows ever to be played in America. They were only worn once in Jacksonville, FL, this past February during the make-up date for a rescheduled Riddle Box Show. These hockey jerseys feature brand new Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope designs that have only been used on these 2 jerseys and never produced again since. They also come equipped with Hatchetmen on the sleeves, and each of their names across the backs. If this particular Riddle Box Show was never rescheduled, these 2 fresh ass jerseys would have never existed.

Into The Echoside Promo Cards

Originally the only way you could get these exclusive promo cards was if you pre-ordered Into The Echoside. But since you’re an idiot, you probably missed out on these 3 very rare promo cards. This lot includes “Wizard of the Hood”, “Inner City Posse”, and “Blahzay Roze”. Never to be pressed up or released ever again, these 3 cards are a must have for any serious Juggalo Gamer out there. Get them now and school the fuck out of your homies!


Here’s one for the ladies and gentlemen of questionable sexual orientation. Naw, we’re just kidding. You don’t have to be gay, but if you are, that’s cool too. This is a very unique item for any Juggalo. This is your chance to see the gathering through the eyes of Psychopathic’s newest artist, LYTE! On Saturday night, you and a few of your homies can experience the Gathering like true superstars. Cruise around with Lyte on his golf cart, hang out backstage, and even watch his performance on the side of the main stage!


Midwest Mayhem Tour Poster Film & Match Print Set

Just like the Wizard of the Hood set listed previously, this Poster Set is beyond rare for many reasons. First, you’ve getting the original framed poster film, and match print. But if that wasn’t rare enough, this is the first and only poster to ever feature both of the Detroit legends Esham and MC Breed (R.I.P.). Oh, and did I mention that this tour never even took place? Holy Shit! This tour was scheduled to happen sometime in 2004, but for whatever reason it never went down, making this poster set an incredibly rare and unique piece of Detroit Music History.

Mr. Diamond Stats Banner

Here’s a piece of history if there ever was one… Measuring roughly 8X7 feet, this banner was used to reveal identity and stats maybe one of the most diabolical Soopa Villianz known to man, Mr. Diamond! This is 1 of 4 banners that were created to unveil the Soopa Villianz at the Gathering of the Juggalos a few months before the official release of their first and only album, “Furious”.

Original Pressing of The First Six Box Set

Here we have the very last original pressing of The First Six! Found buried under piles of old merch left over from past tours, this might just be the very last copy we still have. Complete with misprinted sticker, this box set includes the entire first deck on cd, The EXCLUSIVE bonus ep “House of Wax”, Full sized 12×12 booklet, and certificate of authenticity hand signed by Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. This is one for the true audio collectors out there. Don’t miss your last chance to get this original pressing of one of the greatest sagas ever told…The first six joker cards!

Original Shaggy 2 Dope Sketch for Keep It Scrubbin’ Single

It’s no secret that Shaggy 2 Dope is the creator of a lot of artwork you’ve seen displayed over the years throughout ICP’s gigantic catalog. But it’s not often that any of his original artwork makes it into the hands of private collectors. Here we have a beautifully framed piece created by the master of artist himself, Shaggy 2 Dope. This is a one-of-a-kind hand-drawn sketch that later became the cover art for Shaggy’s “Keep It Scrubbin” single. This 8×10 piece of art is also signed and dated by “Joey”(Not Shaggy 2 Dope), making this incredibly more rare and valuable!

Original Wizard of the Hood Poster Film & Match Print Set

Here’s an item you’ve never even heard of before! This is the original 4 Color Process Poster Film complete with matching Print Poster for Wizard of the Hood. Measuring roughly 18×24, this is a very beautiful and unique piece of art you’ll never see again. This lot includes all 4 original color Process Poster Films (only one is shown in the photo) used to create the Wizard of the Hood Poster, as well as the Match Print. The Match Print in a nutshell is the very first print of the poster ever created. It’s printed on much thicker paper and with special more vibrant ink, to proof test the poster before mass production. We framed and matted the Match Print and 1 of the Poster Films, and included the other 3 Films stashed behind the main Film, which you can easily remove to turn these 2 posters into a 5 piece poster set. A must-have for any poster collector or die hard Wizard of the Hood fan!

Psychopathic Rydas Eat Shit N Die Promotional Banner

This might just be one of the very last Psychopathic Rydas banners to ever be made. This was made to help promote the album “Eat Shit N Die” by the most notorious thugs and killas around…The Psychopathic Rydas! This is incredibly rare and might be the last time you’ll ever see these legendary thugs all on one banner ever again. Measuring roughly 4×4 feet, this will fit perfectly in any Juggalo’s collection.

Shaggy 2 Dope Matching Black & White Hatchetman Football Jerseys

Both of these football jerseys are one-of-a-kind and made for the Southwest Strangla to wear at various concerts and events, and most recently a few after parties. These are both size 3X and feature the Hatchetman on the front and sleeves, with SHAGGY across the back.

Tales From The Lotus Pod Test Press Vinyl

After its CD release in 2001, over 15 years later this album was finally pressed to vinyl to be sold as the ultimate Dark Lotus Collector’s item at the Tales From The Lotus Pod Show that was supposed to take place this past Juggalo Weekend. Although this show never went down, the vinyls were already pressed, so they were sold on Hatchetgear. This is the one-of-a-kind Test Pressing Vinyl for the most critically acclaimed Dark Lotus albums ever made, Tales From The Lotus Pod!

Tunnel of Love XXX and Regular Edition Test Press Vinyls

Audio collectors…I can hear you drooling from here. This lot includes BOTH Test Press Vinyls for Tunnel of Love XXX and Regular Edition. These are one-of-a-kind and even come in the original boxes they were shipped in. If you’ve ever wanted to school your friends, just watch their jaws drop when you pull these out of your collection.

Violent J & Shaggy 2 Dope Baseball Jerseys

Never produced for the public… These 2 jerseys were created only for Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope to wear on stage during their short but sweet solo tours that went down this past February. Both jerseys are 3X and feature the Hatchetman on the front left chest, the number 17 on the back, and of course what stage jersey would be complete without the names “Shaggy” and “Violent J” embroidered across the back? Both of these jerseys were worn multiple times on stage during ICP’s Short Solo Sideshow Spectacular Tour. Fresh!

Violent J Matching Pro Wrestling Syndicate Embroidered Shirt & Hoodie

Straight jacked out of the Duke’s closet comes this very dope one-of-a-kind T-shirt and hoodie combo. It’s no secret that ICP loves to make random popup appearances in local wrestling promotions across the country. From dates unknown, these are RING WORN during one of ICP’s many appearances in Pro Wrestling Syndicate. Both of these are one-of-a-kind and were handmade for Violent J himself!

Yoooo….that Shaggy Sketch tho! Keep ya eyes on JuggaloGathering.com for more flava! The countdown to Shangri-La continues!!!

Violent J has just released a lengthy blog on the Gathering of the Juggalos website. In this blog, Violent J reveals FOUR artists scheduled to perform at this years GOTJ.

Those four artists are:


You can read his full blog below.


Juggalos it’s getting hot out here! MAD HOT! You know there has been a rumor since way, way before I was ever born, I’m talkin’ way back in the 80s, that says our government has nuclear missiles hidden underground in spots all over the country ready to be launched with the push of a red button. I don’t know if that’s true, but if it is, my personal guess is that Lost Lakes Entertainment Complex in Oklahoma City just might be one of those places. It also happens to be the epic location for this year’s gleamin’ and beamin’ in 17in’s Gathering of the Juggalos!

I’m guessing there might be some missiles under the surface of Lost Lakes, because there seems to be some type of nuclear fusion going on there as of late—some sort of toxic radiation reaction causing all sorts of strange occurrences around that bitch. Some truly almost unexplainable shit is jumpin’ off as we speak!

Ever since we announced that this year’s Gathering will be the first place and time ever that ICP actually perform the mighty 6th Joker’s Card, The Wraith Shangri-La album, in its entirety, I really don’t know what the fuck is going on, but craziness is popping off at random. Mass craziness!

For example, the grass there has started glowing a hue of neon blue, which at night makes standing there lookin out at an open field look almost like an electric ocean. Even weirder than that is the many trees on the grounds…They are, how can I explain it—I guess you could say they are flashing. Blinking with light! It’s almost like they are being shocked and energized by something high voltage from deep underground, causing each separate tree to randomly light up! Only for maybe a quarter of a second! Kind of in a strobe light fashion. Then there’s the lakes. They are glowing like some kind of toxic waste, but they smell like a hottie’s perfume and taste like Kool-Aid! One pink, one green, one yellow! They look almost like they’re filled with the shit you find inside of a glow stick!

The entire park right now resembles something containing immense, atomic energy or—I don’t know—an apocalyptic power, I guess.

I do have some idea as of why this all could be, though. I mean there’s gotta really only be one real explanation that possibly makes any sense: I’d say it’s the EPIC KARMA felt by the nature of the place.

I think the grounds themselves are swelling with the supernatural levels of karma from knowing that it is hosting the two thousand fuckin’ seventeen Gathering of the Juggalos. What the fuck else could it be?

Just think about it, bitch boy! How can you or the living nature of Lost Lakes fathom this level of excitement? I don’t think fathoming it all is even really possible. Because if you could, you’d be reading this from within a padded room similar to the one I’m writing this from right now inside the Williamsburg Psych Ward. Because this level of excitement is 10 times the level that would cause your brain to melt like an ice cream cone in hell, and drip itself right outta your ear and nose holes, as well as your own mouth—and leave you totally brainless, just like me. And I don’t want a brain. I don’t want to even make sense. I don’t want to be responsible and do the right thing. I wanna do what society deems as the wrong thing and I wanna go to the motherfuckin’ 2017 Gathering of the Juggalos!

So, with that said…

Right now, being announced for the first time ever, is this name, a name you know and fuckin’ love…the one and only JELLY ROLL!!! This man is blowing up so hard he walks around with an enormous mushroom cloud above him! People become obsessed with his talents, and download his entire catalog, but then the bass in his incredibly hard southern rap beats knocks their heads so hard they all get amnesia and forget they ever heard of him completely. Of course, they soon hear about him again because he’s a constant hot topic all over the streets everywhere, and they soon become huge fans again but BOOM! Then their brains get wiped out again. Jelly Roll is a straight up Juggalo hero and Southern Rap phenom. Catch JELLY ROLL at 2017 Juggalo Gathering, and get your brains blown empty!

Another exciting name playing the Gathering this year in SMOKLAHOMA for the very first time is a new name…soon to be an icon…get used to this word: FROGGY FRESH!!!! This ninja is ascending straight up and out into the stratosphere with lightning speed! He’s dead seriously well on his way straight to the tippety top! If you have never heard of Froggy Fresh before, just always remember where you first saw or heard the name because he’s got hellafied, ridiculous, never seen before talents! Even without rapping, he is fuckin’ beyond hilarious! Oh you think I’m exaggerating? OK slim, just peep his incredible humor and all original style by searching for “Secrets to Be Almost Like Bruce Lee” on YouTube. I’ll wait…You see that shit? What did I tell you! He used to go by the name Krispy Kreme, but then he started getting sued because he was blown up so fuckin’ hard, so now he goes by his birth-given name, Froggy Fresh. Just check out how undeniable his rapping skills are with this YouTube video called “DUNKED ON.” Oh you want more? Of course you do, because you’re now a fan just like me. Peep the video “CHRISTMAS.” I seriously hope to someday tour with this ninja because he’s super dope and he raises my karma incredibly high! We’re very proud to have him playing the Gathering in the year of shingin’ shingin’ and wicked shit singin’, 2017!

And hey ninjas—You like to rock the fuck out? Yes you do, of course you do! What better place to spark up a biggity blunt and get geggidy crunk! What better place to get rocked and maybe even socked and dropped? What better place to show no refrain, and get insane, deranged, and inhuman? What better place to get lit, throw a fit, get your wig split up in the mosh pit? I ain’t joking though, bruh! Come to Tokelahoma for the 2017 Gathering! Because we are proud to announce a band that will rock your block, entertain your brain, and surprise your eyes—see, hear, and experience the freshness of PSYCHOSTICK!! Thats right—all the insane members in maximum force! Witness these boys in their full prime as they twerk your spine. Get a fat kick out of PSYCHOSTICK, homie! This band is the SHIT!

And last but sure as fuck not least—one last very special artist! OHHHH shit I remember a few years back at the Gathering when he hopped right into the fuckin’ pit in the middle of his set and started splittin’ wigs! How many rappers you know jump right into the pit, with no fear, and fuckin’ school it? There can only be one: I’m talking about WAKA FLOCKA FLAME! This ninja was born to own the stage, and that’s exactly what he does, and after straight up murdering the stage at the Gathering 2016, he showed up at last year’s Hallowicked to obliterate the entire sold out crowd with utter freshness. He’s since became a pure Juggalo favorite. And that love is a two-way street, because he loves rocking with the Juggalos and has said to me multiple times that the freedom of a Juggalo stage allows him to truly be himself without restrictions or judgment! And that’s exactly what he does and why we love him. So I’m proud to say that we just confirmed WAKA FLOCKA FLAME!!! So fuckin’ dope! He’s simply known for having one of the hypest and greatest live shows in the rap game—simple and blunt, with WAKA FLOCKA FLAME on the bill, it is surefire to be pure fire!

AWWWW HEELLLL YEAH!!! Its gonna BE DOPE! Seriously Dope and yo…WE’RE JUST GETTIN’ STARTED! Stay tuned to JuggaloGathering.com for more announcements, and don’t Miss the Juggalo Gathering 2017! This…is…our…year!
