Seeing they're working with other underground artists and hip hop websites actually pay attention to them occasionally, should they drop the paint to move away from the whole ICP comparison and become respectable?

"become respectable"? Stayin true to who they are is respectable. Sounds like you think they should sell out.

Idk if I'd say selling out. What if they went back to the hoods up w/ contacts no paint look. Lol or the green hair black contacts look. They didn't start off with face paint. But I see what your saying since it's almost like their personas.

They've worn face paint for the majority of their careers as twiztid though, and I know they change it up. That's what they do, but he was saying the should drop it just cus they want to be taken more seriously. Change a core element of their appearance to impress outsiders, and that's selling out. If they did it cus grease paint is itchy and annoying, i'd be like "yeah i get u man". Lol that's what i meant

I'm not saying to change the music at all, lets face it they're getting old and their fan base isn't exactly growing. I know it's been their look for a long time but even the hoodie and contact look made them look different and independent to ICP. They only did the paint to be accepted by Juggalos in the first place, now if ICP took their paint off that would be a different story... they actually are ment to be clowns. Twizitd look cooler as gothic vampires over pandas (and whatever abomination the Man's Myth era was ment to be), just look at the og Mostasteless cover or the purple posters with lightning from that era

They are getting older though, like you said. And facepaint does a good job of covering up wrinkles. Even Tech N9ne does it during shows, and he is gaining fans and respect.

Not in prison...they'd already be targets in prison with that paint on...if they dropped it things could get sketchy.

Tech's subject matter has changed though, compare Anghellic to now...  fuck the industry movement  to Lil Wayne and T Pain. Doing songs with other well known artists and doing party tracks is expanding his fan base. Plus no more spiked red hair,  he softened his image to cater to the regular hip hop audience. And it isn't like he wears facepant in every video, interview and photo.

If they wanna make it outside psy then yes! They won't be taken seriously.  And I hate telling people my favorite rappers paint their faces. For icp it's a given since they are clowns playing the part.

And the times they do (hiphopdx.com interview) they look like a joke to anyone seeing them for the first time. Fair enough if they're doing Fright Fest, The Gathering or anything that will attract Juggalos but the rest of the world won't give them a serious chance.

LOL, they will never be respectable with how they left PSY. They should stop the facepaint cause it looks fucking retarded. TOO MUCH going on in the "new paint" They suck so bad now, they want more attention for the paint..funny how all the haters say those fags are better than ICP, but only have 300,000 fans on FB, and ICP has over a MILLION. Fuck twiztid.

First quoted comment, so they are not respectable now?

Second quoted comment, so the countless acts that have sold millions of records with gimmicky face paint look like joke and no one gives them a second chance?

 

My opinion on this is simple if Twiztid wants to remove the face paint so be it. Unfortunately like most other white rappers they will never be full accepted or respected in the Rap/Hip Hop world period.

It is funny that you and people like you were not talking all this shit about Twiztid until they left Psychopathic. The facebook fans is a void point because Twiztid has only had their page for a year tops. Were as ICP has had theirs a lot long.

I don't think they need the paint anymore, but it's such a part of what they do that it might not be easy to lose it. I do think that a lot of people would take them more seriously without it, but I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I kind of like that they're our secret, and that most people would look at them an think they're not interested in listening to them. But on the other hand, there are probably tons of people who would love their music if only they took them seriously enough to listen to them. Conundrum.

Twiztid is the fucking shit and id support them paint or no paint. I could see how dropping the paint could alienate the juggalos who are petty enough to care about something so trivial. Their music speaks for itself and in volumes. Even with a paltry "300000 fb likes"(like thats something to be ashamed of) they are doing just fucking fine on their own. Period.

Obviously ICP is an example of a successful facepainted group but when you're in your 40s, been rapping for 20 odd years and are still compared to the people you're trying to distance yourself from what is there to lose? They would have lost a heap of fans who jumped on the Fuck Twiztid bandwagon when they left Psychoapthic and A New Nightmare wouldn't have brought in many if any. At least they got a heap of guests to try and get exposure. And like someone said earlier around The Green Book when they only had green hair and contacts, got E-40, Tech and Layzie Bone, stopped saying Juggalo and almost left to do Majik Records they had the right idea to stop being labeled as ICP jrs.

They will always be compared and linked with ICP and Juggalos. If someone new checks them out and decides they like them they will look into their past music and BLAM ICP and Juggalos will pop up.

I had seen more Fuck ICP and Psychopathic than Twiztid since they left.

That was their smartest move since leaving and i even brought it up in the past as to why they had so many guest on A New Nightmare.

 

Twiztid will still be twiztid whether or not they have paint on or not, but they will never escape the Juggalo vortex if they try.
