Violent J Will Be Appearing At Days of the Dead 2022!

Get your wicked on, Juggalos! The Duke of the Wicked that is Violent J will be invading the Days of the Dead 2022 Horror Convention in Chicago on Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th at the Crowne Plaza O’Hare.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition LEGENDARY rapper and artist VIOLENT J to the guest roster for DAYS OF THE DEAD: CHICAGO happening NOVEMBER 18-20 at the CROWNE PLAZA O’HARE.
Violent J, is an American rapper, record producer, professional wrestler, and part of the hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse. He is a co-founder of the record label Psychopathic Records, with fellow ICP rapper Shaggy 2 Dope and their former manager, Alex Abbiss. Also along with Utsler, Violent J is the co-founder of the professional wrestling promotion Juggalo Championship Wrestling.”
“In 1989, Bruce recorded his first solo release, Enter the Ghetto Zone, using two cassette players. One played the beat, while the other recorded, and Bruce stuck his head between the two and rapped. In 2003, Bruce released his second solo release Wizard of the Hood, which was an extended reference to the Wizard of the Hood songs which he recorded on Inner City Posse’s Intelligence and Violence and Dog Beats, and Insane Clown Posse’s Carnival of Carnage. In 2009, Bruce released the LP The Shining, which was initially given away for free at the 2008 Gathering of the Juggalos before being nationally released.  During ICP’s GOTJ 2013 seminar J and Shaggy stated that they were wanting to do solo albums. On December 10, 2015, with the release of “Phantom: X-tra Spooky” EP two flyers were released. One for Shaggy 2 Dope’s new solo album titled “F.T.F.O.M.F.” said to be released in 2016. The other flyer was for Violent J’s new solo album titled “Karma Forest” said to be released in 2016.
In late 1991, Inner City Posse changed their style, look, and name. Bruce recalled a dream of a clown running around in Delray, which became the inspiration for the group’s new name: Insane Clown Posse. Upon returning home that night, Bruce had a dream in which spirits in a traveling carnival appeared to him—an image that would become the basis for the Dark Carnival mythology detailed in the group’s Joker’s Cards series. These stories each offer a specific lesson designed to change the “evil ways” of listeners before “the end consumes us all.” Insane Clown Posse has a dedicated following, often referred to by the group as Juggalos and Juggalettes.”
“John Utsler left the group about a month before the release of Carnival of Carnage and Insane Clown Posse has since been composed of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler, who perform under the respective personas of the murderous, wicked clowns Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. The duo performs a style of hardcore hip hop known as horrorcore, and is known for its dark, violent lyrics and elaborate live performances. Insane Clown Posse has earned two platinum and five gold albums. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the entire catalog of the group has sold 6.5 million units in the United States and Canada as of April 2007.
On December 12, 2004, Bruce and Utsler competed in the event A Night of Appreciation for Sabu, teaming with the Rude Boy to defeat the team of Corporal Robinson, Zach Gowen, and Breyer Wellington. Utsler received surgery on his neck the following year, forcing Bruce to compete as a singles competitor and as a member of the Hatchet Boys, alongside Corporal Robinson and 2 Tuff Tony.”
“In late 2006, Bruce was involved in a rivalry with Pro Wrestling Unplugged. On November 18, he turned on Corporal Robinson, the then JCW Heavyweight Champion and PWU Hardcore Champion, provoking a series of matches between JCW and PWU. At Pro Wrestling Unplugged’s
PWU vs JCW”, Team PWU (The Backseat Boyz and Corporal Robinson) defeated Team JCW (2 Tuff Tony, Violent J, and Dyson Pryce). The following month, Team PWU (Trent Acid, Corporal Robinson, Johnny Kashmere, Pete Hunter, and Gary Wolfe) took on Team JCW (Nosawa, 2 Tuff Tony, Violent J, Mad Man Pondo, and Raven) in a War Games match. Raven, however, attacked both teams, provoking all members of Team PWU and Team JCW to join forces and attack Raven.
Bruce starred in the Psychopathic Records crime comedy Big Money Hustlas, as Big Baby Sweets, in 2000. A sequel, Big Money Rustlas followed in 2010, in which Bruce portrayed Big Baby Sweets’ ancestor, Big Baby Chips. In 2001, Bruce was offered a role in the musical Prison Song, in which he was asked to play a bigoted prison guard. The producers offered Bruce the role on the basis of his appearances on The Howard Stern Show, and told him that they wanted “a big white dude with urban slang to his voice”, and on the basis of his radio appearances, thought that Bruce was perfect for the role. While Bruce had interest in acting outside of Psychopathic Records projects, as well as being willing to act without face paint, he did not want to play a racist, and turned the role down. In preparation for Big Money Rustlas, Bruce starred in the film Death Racers in 2008.”
“VIOLENT J will be in full makeup signing autographs and taking professional photo ops FRIDAY AND SATURDAY ONLY!!”

    I think it’s a lame move for anyone. It’s like advertising that you’re broke. Maybe he can say hello to Edward Norton, Kane Hodder, The Twins from The Shining and the kid from The Omen.

    He’s better than doing horror conventions.

    Agreed. Unfortunately, this is a tier above playing county fairs. He’s got a family though, I don’t begrudge the guy for picking the low hanging fruit if that’s what it takes to feed them.
