Law Enforcement Claims 'Horrorcore' Genre Incites Crime

Both performers said individuals who listened to their music and committed these assaults were "insane to begin with."

"Individuals who listen to our music? Come on, man, who else do they listen to? Why don't you blame them?" Violent J said.

"There's a bad apple in every bunch, so you know if that kid's got a screw loose, it might take something else to set him off, not us," added Shaggy 2 Dope.

Violent J conceded that some Juggalos have likely perpetrated murders and acts of violence.

"Out of millions and millions that have bought our albums -- some of them have probably committed horrendous crimes," Violent J said.

After 90 minutes, the show ended and the duo was escorted away -- drenched in Faygo and sweat.

Rappers: We Don't Condone Violence

There remains no definitive evidence that watching a horror movie, playing a violent video game or listening to the Insane Clown Posse actually causes people to go commit crimes.

"I think Juggalos are all very smart men, like they're wiser people than that. They're smarter," Violent J said.

But others, like Vasey, argue that the ICP, knowing the devotion of their Juggalo fans, should take more responsibility for their violent lyrics.

"They've got so much influence, so much influence especially on these younger kids," she said. "If they could use what they have and the power through music even, they could change and influence these young kids' lives."

Though they sing about homicide and hatchets, this band of rappers wanted to make their position absolutely clear.

"We're not encouraging anybody," Violent J said. "We're sitting here telling the world we have face paint on. If any of our fans kill anybody, please don't buy any more of our f--king records. Get out of our lives. You're a sicko."
