Today Marks the 25th Anniversary of Insane Clown Posse’s 4th Joker Card ‘The Great Milenko’! [Mini Editorial]

Good evening Juggalos worldwide! Today is officially the 25th anniversary of Insane Clown Posse’s platinum LP ‘The Great Milenko’! Yes. On Tuesday, June 24th, 1997 Disney’s Hollywood Records nationally released Insane Clown Posse’s  4th Joker Card LP ‘The Great Milenko’.  The classic 1990’s hip-hop record that  permanently solidified Insane Clown Posse and the Juggalo Culture as an independent music force to be reckoned with for decades upon decades! ‘The Great Milenko’ debuted at number #63 inside the Billboard Top 200 with 100,000 copies instantaneously shipped and 14,000 units sold right out the gate. But then brief music tragedy struck, as Disney (who already paid 1 million dollars to sign the Clowns) unexpectedly decided to pull ‘The Great Milenko’ from every record store shelf in America on the day of the mighty influential LP’s official release date. Things didn’t look so great for the Clowns. But lucky enough  for the Detroit underground legends, a bidding war ensued between Geffen Records, Interscope, and  Island Records to sign the Insane Clown Posse to properly unleash ‘The Great Milenko’ for the whole world to hear. Island Records ended up victorious in the end and re-released the LP on Tuesday, August 12, 1997, completely uncensored!

With brilliant morbid-ghetto-gutter rhyme schemes from Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope meshed with superb Dark Carnival production from Mike E. Clark,  on top of  guest features from rock legends such as Alice Cooper, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, and Slash of Guns N’ Roses, the sounds embedded within ‘The Great Milenko’ presents  an underground masterpiece from front to back that deserves to pound in the streets continuously throughout your entire life due to its raw musically infectious flavor. Whoop! Whoop!  Can you remember where you were when you first bumped ‘The Great Milenko’? What was going on in your own personal  life back then? Leave your thoughts and favorite memories behind ‘The Great Milenko’ below!

    I can’t tell you how many times ppl ask me or talk to me about great milenko to this day lol some of yall probably get the same shit to, so you already know. I always have ppl that know very little about icp, or barely know who or what they are, but they all know the great milenko. It’s fr fr probably more famous than icp themself. Was and still is a great album tho. Still be dope after were all dead and gone.
