This past month I have watched DJ Detox+ friends rock so many packed rooms. Sweatin, Get Right, The Catalyst’s release party, So What Wednesdays, The Milk Bar and even Twiztid at the Newport all got handled.
I am gonna hit you with a series of blogs with pictures and playlists from a gaybar, a downtown nightclub, a boutique, a shitgaze(jokes) haven turned Stretch + Bobbie 89.9 for a night and a sold-out Juggalo event to let you know Home Mortgage scandals don’t need to be the norm
Lets start with the Sold-out Newport.
Might as well set it off with proof that if God doesn’t love ugly, someone else will and make 25 dollars at ticket.

Background on the show:Pos 2 rocked the NERD show with Fly Union’s J-Swifa’s help. A connect at Newport was impressed at their performance. So dood at the Newport asked Pos to do the Twiztid show. Pos hit up Detox like, “you up for a challenge.” In some weird Batman signal, and a sense of honor, Pos and Detox decided they needed to do this show, and do it correctly.
Seriously, it was on some deejay samurai code/Doctor’s Oathe. Like, how do you fuck ICP’s bitch correctly. So all week omnimix pm’s were sent to working class graff writers that like ICP. Lot’s of discussion of what makes an ICP hit.
Lost of discovery of 3-6 Mafia, and plenty of Detroit’s underground doing collabs with ICP.
BUt back to life, Back to reality.
Show is sold out. Juggalo’s been out since 10 am, eagerly waiting to see their idols. Doors open, they need to greated with some entertainment.
Their entertainment? DJ Pos 2 hosting. DJ Detox on the tables. Me, Cashola, Dirtnap and Dkline lurking in the back ground. Detox is mad nervous. Keeps expressing the fact that he doesn’t want someone to hit him in the head with a bottle of Faygo. My point is:even if they hit you with Faygo, think about it. These are Juggalo’s.
Again, I am not the entertainment. I am a blogger. So its easy for me to say, “hey, b-ez.”
1200 rabid Juggalos, who have nothing to live for but this moment. Sold-out room. They got Przm’s best friend, and one of my best friends as entertainment. This is like Diplo,Low-Bee, Mick Boogie Tony Touch, Doo-Wop, Stretch Armstrong,and Primo trying to hold it down at the Gathering of the Juggalos.
The plan was this. Doors open. Juggalo’s run to the front until they are stopped by a barrier. Pos hosts, and Detox drops “Dre Day” to the hungry Twiztid massives. Then Pos greats them. And then our heroes hit them with a joke.
Basically, our heroes drop “Dre Day”, Pos addresses the crowd. Asks where his Columbus Juggalo’s are. Claims we are about to hear some real juggalo shit. Then they dropped a polka record, much to the sha-grin to the trillest of the ICP movement.
Pos looks at the crowd like he is with them in their disdain for polka music, and is like “I wanna here that real Hatchetman shit”.
Srsly. Why Detox hit them with Polka?
Detox then drops the following set:
insane clown posse “chicken huntin”blaze ya dead homie “i go to workpsychopathic rydas “dumpin”cypress hill “i wanna get high”blaze ya dead homie “in case you forgot”dark lotus “juggalo family”twiztid “bury them all” ft. tech 9nethree 6 mafia “just anotha crazy click” ft. icp & twiztidinsane clown posse “thug pit” ft. bone thugs-n-harmony, tech 9ne, esham & kottonmouth kings
“Juggalo Family” is especially a hit with the crowd. Who can lose with a hook like, “Mass murder makes me happy. Dead Bodies make me happy. What can I say? I am on of the Juggalo family.”
We all stunt on stage. Detox and Pos just won the Kentucky Derby. Cashola pops bottles.
Now, the gameplan also had this idea:Who the fuck gives a shit more about turntablism than Juggalo’s? So Pos and Detox invited Bombay to drop some turntable wizardry.
What we didn’t account for is that the rule of selection being 90 percent of being a dejay holding true on Bombay. Bombay had a dope routine that had him cutting super technical over RJD2.
Juggalo’s don’t care about Bombay or RJ for that matter.They care about DJ Clay.
DJ Clay is the man when it comes to Juggalo Dejaying. He plays nothing but Psychopathic artists. He has their whole world down. He rocked it later. DJ Clay got ICP mixtape joints, rocking over shit like M.O.P’s “Ante Up”. Clay has screwed and chopped songs asking “If you is a real juggalo put your hands up. Clay is Green Lantern, Mike Watts, Q-bert and Nick Catchdubs all mixed into one for the ICP world.
That left Bombay assed out. The crowd was already suspect if they were seeing their own. Watching Bombay made them realize they have been hoodwinked. At least Detox gave them their hits.
The crowd chanted for DJ Clay. This is no fault of Bombay. He just did’nt play any Psychopathic Record’s releases. So the crowd wasn’t feeling it.
All, and all it was a fun evening. I got approached by ICP girl that had been made fun of by PBJ asking my stance on the Hatchet. I said, “Not for me. But they gave you a voice right?”
We drank for free. Detox and Pos learned they could hold it down in ICP land.
