Alright so check this out Juggalos and Juggalettes. I know that the announcement that Twiztid left Psychopathic Records really shook a lot of Juggalos to the core. Well the homie Scribbles the Denver Juggalo hit us up a few days back because this news was completely devastating. He said that he was going to go on a hunger strike until Twiztid chose to return to the label. He sent us at FLH an email about it, and also sent Psychopathic an email outlining his intentions. I’m not sure what all the one to Psychopathic said, but judging by the response, it was very similar to the one that he sent to us. Here’s what we received:
What up Scotty,
This is Scribbles the Juggalo announcing that I am goin on a hunger strike until Twiztid returns to Psychopathic Records. There is to much good music and fun for us Juggalos and them to loose because of this departure. Two of my heroes are Gandhi and Violent J. I am urging all Juggalos to take whatever PEACEFUL actions you can to talk Twiztid into returning. And until they do I am not eating!
Scribbles also started documenting his daily struggle without food, starting with this video where he talks about his reasons behind the strike:
At Magnet0730’s Youtube Page, you can watch daily vlogs from Scribbles talking about the hunger strike, and pleading with Twiztid to give legitimate reasons for leaving. Please note that Scribbles is no longer on a hunger strike, so there’s no need to worry about his health or starvation now. Anyways, Psychopathic actually did respond to his email, and said the following:
I’m sure that Violent J would be flattered at being placed in the same category as Gandhi but there’s a world of difference between a band leaving a label and trying to passively end government oppression in one of the world’s largest countries. Rest assured that Twiztid and Psychopathic are still tight and we still plan on rocking shows together in the future.
So please, on behalf of your friends at Psychopathic, do not engage in a hunger strike to bring back Twiztid. It wouldn’t do any good and as a Juggalo, we care about your health.
Have a wicked Christmas and a Happy New Year, Ninja!
Director of Public Relations
So first off, kudos to Psychopathic for actually getting back to this ninja for fear of his safety! I’ve done a fast for like 3 days before and the things that your body does after not eating for a few days is crazy. The other good thing is that the Public Relations guy reiterates the fact that Twiztid and Psychopathic are on good terms! So barring a completely different response from either camp, hopefully we’ll still see ICP and Twiztid rockin’ the same stage together in the future!
