No Love For The Juggalos In Toronto [Article]

Published: May 9, 2011 in Tech N9ne by

Juggalos are dedicated, loyal, and unbelievably enthusiastic individuals. Even so, not everyone is so open to their subculture. Joshua Errett, a writer for Now Magazine, has published an article detailing his sour experience with Juggalos while watching Tech N9ne perform at SXSW. Joshua originally reviewed the performance in a controversial piece titled “Tech N9ne Performs For The Juggalos“. The review garnered such a backlash from the Juggalos, that Joshua was repeatedly confronted on all of his social media accounts. In his second take on the Juggalos, Joshua pulls no punches stating:

“The veteran Kansas City rapper has massive support from the Juggalos. Here’s a chance, I thought, to see him minus his obnoxious supporters. To my surprise, the show was packed with unsightly Juggalos. They are easy to spot. Almost always overweight, these filthy people can be found guzzling alcoholic energy drinks, wearing clothes from the 90s and painting their faces like clowns.”

Fearing the return of Tech N9ne and the possibility of more Juggalos, Joshua added this:

“Tech N9ne and his Juggalish fan base are coming to Toronto next week. After my horrid brush with Juggalo culture, I’ll be skipping the show.”

As Joshua continues his personal battle with the Juggalos, remember that Tech N9ne returns to Canada with the Canuck The Industry Tour. For those who don’t mind rubbing elbows with Juggalos, VIP packages are still available.

    I hate to single any one group out but its about time someone said something about the fact that a vast majority of juggalos are just plain out annoying, over zealous, and beyond arrogant. They might of started out as something good but like any good movement too many people join and it become watered down to what Juggalo culture represents. Even if juggalos dont want to think of themselves that way. If you got a problem with the criticism dont talk shit. Put a leash on the morons that are soiling your once proud roots. As it stands now they’re no better than the dark version of beiber fanatics except they don’t worship a collective figure they worship themselves.

    I am a juggalo, and proud to be one. we are so misrepresented with the stupid juggalos that claim we are a gang. we are not. we are just a bunch of ppl who like the same shit. we call ourselfs a familey because if u put a bunch of ppl in line i would pick the juggalos before any other type of ppl. we have each others back just for the fact that we are juggalos. what i dont understand is the large amount of ppl who trash talk juggalo and icp. I dont like country music but i dont go around say that keith urban sucks and his fan are red necks who fuc their sisters. i dont do that. if thats their choice to listen to that music then let it be. Im not out to put ppl down for what they listen to, i have no right to do that, so where do u getthe right to me whats good music? I have my own taste and u have yours, so maybe u should be thankful we both like tech n9ne, and we not kick your bitch ass, MMFWCL

  • strange ninja

    grants a bitch and everyone who want to talk shit on juggalos I’m not fat or nasty and prolly got more cash then the bitches that want to talk shit any way and to those los out there with nothing keep ya head up cuz I was broke at one time and these punk ass haters can’t fuck with or shine

  • Seriously. I love tech n9ne, but have NEVER seen him yet because of how shitty juggalos are at shows. They remind me of MSI fans…which is why I barely ever go to see them anymore because I cant fucking stand meth-addicted hillbillies aka Juggalos. They ruin concerts for other people, they really do. I KNOW, I KNOW, not all juggalos are like that, but enough are to put a SHITTY taste in my mouth. My advice? Splurge on the VIP tix, since most juggalos are too concerned with spending their money on meth and taking their cousins out to bars to date-rape them. Seriously, fuck juggalos. It’s the same reason I never have gone to see the Kottonmouth Kings…fucking juggalos suck dick.

  • It’s really sad that so many of Tech’s fans feel such an entitlement to him, when it’s clear that Juggalos are the most solid part of his fan base. Though I hate a lot of the upper-middle class white boys with their long hair and ugly orange girlfriends that go to a lot of Tech shows to feel cool, I would NEVER miss a show because of them. I love Tech and all of Strange and I couldn’t give a fuck less about anyone else’s opinion of me.

  • Jacquelynrushing

    Man that artical was written by a dick. Unpallettable? fuck him.

  • forealla

    grant your a fuckin dildo, go back to finger fuckin your own ass. Im a juggalo, I got my collage degree I would say were not all like the others but we are I would still throw a faygo at your bitch ass mug and give your momma the ride of her life. As for zakk who the hell taught your momma how to spell? and if you dont like the taste that’s in your mouth get the fuck off our cocks!

  • His article was already insulting in the first part, he was just hating so how can this supposed “journalist ” be taken seriously? other people reporting on Juggalos wasn’t as critical as this douchebag who obviously resent them for their looks, fans come in all shapes and sizes. This Joshua Errett should get fired for being a completely unbiased hateful and “knows what is best” idiot who can never be taken seriously. Even at the end of his article he admits to wanting to incite a fight just cuz of his paranoia of being attacked while drunk! What type of reporting is this? Fuck Him!

    All of y’all are trippin!!!!!!!! I kno tech still got love for the juggalos. There’s no way he can stop loving them. He’s coo wit the icp and kmk, and those niggas are the juggalo kings. Tht bitch tht wrote the article about techs show needs to open his eyes and ears. Who gives a shit if juggalos drink and shit. Those niggas kno how to enjoy and really honor and respect the music tht strange music does. If u don’t like juggalos then u must not like tech n9ne or anyone from strange music. So in the words of tech n9ne “suck it easy”

  • Abstractrealityy

    I’ve never ever felt the need to call myself a lette. But my closest homies, my FAMILY are juggalos. If you have a problem with the juggalos, then how are you just gonna
    make an exception for one of them regardless of the reason why? People need to fuck off and focus on what’s really important. The MUSIC.

  • Abstractrealityy

    You have a problem going to a show having to stand next to the juggalos? Well, I have a problem going to shows having to stand next to the richy bitch and her rich boyfriend flip flops and a hollister t-shirt. That doesn’t stop me! Nobody wants to be judged, so

    F U C K O F F.

  • Carm!3

    Haha are you sure this dude is a Journalist? I mean can’t you obviously see that this is pure stereotyping and discrimination? Haha wow… Real
    Techn9cians understand the love that Strange Music has for Juggalos. Yes, there are some people who call themselves Juggalos and Juggalettes and are idiots and just making the REAL ones look bad. But isn’t that in every subculture? There is always someone that has to fuck it up for everyone else. That’s what we call “Juffalos” or posers. Meet a real Juggalo or Juggalette before you want to say something bad about us. Tech himself has said he’s a juggalo before!! If you go to his shows you can see that most of the Strange Music Crew has on Hatchetman pendants. Tech paints his face to haha. Tech drinks alcohol LMFAO. And he has a little belly on him!! So is Tech also and embarrassing obnoxious guy haha? Exactly haha. Listen to some of Tech songs he gives Juggalos shout outs all the time!! I mean he goes to The Gathering of the Juggalos almost EVERY YEAR. Haters stop living in denial seriously haha this love for juggalos has been going on for a long time, ya’ll just late. Get over yourself seriously. Strange loves Juggalos, Juggalos love strange!! And if you don’t like that, you can fuck off. <3.MCL!! Whoop Whoop!!- Love, Carm!3 <3

    I wish you all would comment on other blogs as much as you have this one. Without all the hating that is. We are all Tech fans. That Joshua guy that wrote that hated Jugallos from the get go obviously. Instead of giving anyone a chance, he just hated someone for no reason and then started a bunch of crap. Or he had a bad experience with one, and thinks they are all like that. I really don’t blame the Juggalo’s for being pissed off. I am not a Juggalo, but the dude sounds like an ignorant jerk. ICP isn’t my favorite rap group or anything but they are pretty smart business men and have a really loyal fan base, just like Tech. And because of there popularity here in Michigan, I have checked out some of there stuff, despite being and Eminem fan. I wont hate ICP just because Eminem and them go back and forth. Am I think Esham is one of the best rappers ever. I have seen some pretty hot Jugallo’s too, so I don’t know where that other part came from. You are being dicks to eachother because of some idiot. If you don’t like eachother then don’t talk to eachother.Stop hating. I went to an Ohio concert and didn’t really see any Jugallos. I wasn’t really looking for them either though, because I am not looking to descriminate against other people. There were idiots that were trying to push to the front, but they we idiots, not Juggalos. Use all that passion and energy in a good way.

  • Steve

    First off, if you’re so sensitive that juggalos make you not wanna see Tech or any other artist, you’re a bitch. They aren’t that bad and most clubs that Tech plays are big enough that you should be able to avoid them and still enjoy the show.

    Second, I would like to preface my next point with the fact that I own every CD put out by Twiztid, the majority of Blaze’s music, ABK’s first two (as well as Native Funk/Rattlesnake EP), and several ICP albums. I also have seen Blaze and Twiztid both on various occasions. Juggalo’s are second only to Lady GaGa as the worst thing to happen to music. EVER.
    Third, juggalos need to realize there is NO family. Would you open your house if some random guy wearing a psychopathic shirt came to your doorstep? I sure as hell hope not. Would ICP? Keep dreaming. Would you bail a random juggalo out of jail? Probably not? Is Blaze gonna come bail your ass out? Better chance of this reporter coming to your rescue. You were lied to. Deal with it.

    “Juggalish fan base”…Lmao..that’s great
    Juggalo Techn9cian for life!!!
    Much Clown Love to all the juggalos and much Love to all the Techn9cians out there!

  • Well look, all these haters saying there ashamed that juggalos like tech n9ne, Try it the other way around to. i have personally experienced many members of strange music showing clown love. Krizz Kaliko tweeted, ”
    Have any of you read the post on tech’s web site “No Love for juggalos” I don’t know who joshua errett is but Fuchs what he talkin bout. Juggalos r our family for life. He a writer for Now Magazine. That was some bullshit!!!” and when i talked to tech n9ne on one of his take the pledge call ins multiple juggalos called in and he would say “clown love” and “whoop whoop”. dont believe me? let me know and ill send links to the exact page that krizz tweeted and the exact broadcast that tech said this on. I am a Juggalo and a Techn9cian for life and proud of both.

  • I am a Strange Music employee and a Juggalo and proud of it!

  • kdm24

    He didnt need to go into a whole lot of detail, like personal attacks and everything, because even tho I don’t support the clown posse movement, I understand what they’re tryin to do and I appreciate the show of unity between their group……….That being said, I’ve been to three Tech shows in Seattle, and the clown fans do like to start too much random shit, bust out car windows outside the venues (the show at The Premiere is a huge example), and when it just gets too stupid, it ruins the show! Friends of mine ended up getting kicked out the show at The Catwalk Club because the clown fans just wouldnt stop, and my buddies had to meet up with a couple of them outside and check ’em, but I got to meet Tech that night while everybody else was acting stupid, haha;)

    If u wanna be fans of Tech, cool! Tech deserves platinum plaques, Mtv and BET shine on Drake and them’s level, but Tech N9ne is not the sole fuckin property of Clown Posse’s fans, how many of u were fuckin with him before he started fuckin with the Clowns?? How many of u heard Mitchell Bade or Welcome to the Asylum or Cloudy Eyed Stroll before sumone posted it up on ur forums one day…Tech had fans before the clowns, he will absolutely have fans after them, can’t wait for the Seattle shows, Showbox is a cool venue, and they dont stand for people startin random hooligan shit:)

  • kdm24

    I’ll amend sum of what I said by saying SOME clown fans would bust out windows and deface shit, like I said, there r always stupid people doin stupid shit at every show, these just happened to be clowns…I saw sum dude draped in red head to toe try to hit DJ Quik with a bottle at one of his showbox shows a couple years back, hooligan shit doesnt have any racial, gender lines, and I’m sure there r genuine clown fans out there who just luv the music, cool, more power to anyone who keeps shit strictly for the luv of music, it’s fuckin music!! In the grand scheme of things, people fighting and violence over music is sum ri-goddamn-diculous shit:P
