Violent J Of ICP Speaks On Recording Side Project With Tech N9ne [SM Exclusive]

Published: August 12, 2011 in Tech N9ne by

Violent J Of Insane Clown Posse on Tech N9neWhen we caught up with Violent J last week, all of Psychopathic Records was busy preparing for the 12th Annual Gathering Of The Juggalos. Among the topics Violent J discussed with us were The Gathering and Tech N9ne’s impact on the Juggalo community. Speaking openly, Violent J also reflected on touring with Tech N9ne and his desire to one day collaborate again or even record an entire side project with the Kansas City King.

Looking back at the Wicked Wonka Tour, Violent J recalled how Tech N9ne carved his own spot on the tour and found his way into the Juggalo fan base:

“It was his freshness that did it. There’s been fifty million bands that have been on tour with us, not all of them are huge Juggalo sensations like Tech. Tech N9ne’s awesomeness did that. It was Tech N9ne getting out there and winning everybody over that did that. It wasn’t anything that we said or did. He was making noise back then. He was making a lot of noise back then, which is why we reached out to him. People wanted to see the best there. It wasn’t anything we said or did that put him on with Juggalos. He put himself on with Juggalos.”

Of course the success of the tour would later lead to Tech N9ne and Insane Clown Posse collaborating. Although he remains proud of the collaboration, Violent J wishes it could have gone better:

“We did a song together, and I feel like we could have really put it down harder. There’s nothing wrong with what anybody did on that song, but I just feel like overall we could have done a better song. I like the song we did, but I feel like we could really grand slam it and knock it out of the park. I’ve been waiting to get a bomb ass track together and a bomb ass song and we’ll collab again. I know a lot of Juggalos would love to hear another collabo from us.”

A single track is not all Violent J is looking for though, as he went on to openly discuss the possibility of revisiting the idea of a side project with Tech N9ne:

“I want to really sit down and do something man. Another thing I talked to him about way in the past, I don’t know if he would be interested anymore, but back in the day we used to talk about doing a group together. If we did some fresh project together, like an album of a side project, that shit would be dope for the underground. People would love that shit. Go somewhere for a month and bang out an album together. Maybe us, Tech, and somebody else. Do a side project somewhere. Juggalos would love that and I would love that. It would just be dope and maybe we could get something like that poppin’ off one day.”

With Tech N9ne once again hitting the main stage at The Gathering this year, there is no telling what could happen. There is no doubt that Juggalos have gravitated to Tech’s music, and with a mutual respect, he and the Insane Clown Posse could one day come together for another great collaboration.

  • FR3SH

    Icp ft. Tech Nn9eMAd House
    Icp ft Kmk, Esham, Tech N9ne, Bone Thugs-Thug Pit

  • that would be really intresting to hear. strange and psy have very different sounds. usual 2 oppisits realy go together. but with tech doing strange land and klusterfuk i think its called i dont think he would have time anytime soon. whooop!x2

  • Tech n9ne already sounds like a name of a ryda, that’d be the bomb if he did some of that shit with em

  • Mrcarter1303

    twiztids better but i think the whole idea is f’n stupid icp is kid shit 

  • SWStrangala

    Are u fucking retarded? U wanna call Juggalos dumb, well consider the fact that A LOT of Tech’s fans are Juggalos. Tech gets so much love from the Juggalo community, for u to call them “gags” on his fan page is insulting to HIM. Think before u talk dipshit. Oh, and Tech wears face paint and dyes his hair as well. A true fan would know that. Whoop whoop!!!!!

  • Donjuggalo

    Twiztid would be a better choice I agree. And to anyone hating on Juggalos why not keep that close-minded crap to yourself? I just came back from the 12th annual Gathering of the Juggalos, and it definitely was anything but kids stuff. You’re just a hater who doesn’t know what the hell they’re talking about. ICP’s story is a lot like Tech’s. No one wanted to give them a chance and hated on them because they were ‘different’ and wore face-paint. Against all odds they stayed true to their sh*t and made a name for themselves anyway. Tech uses more MTV and mainstream avenues than ICP did, but he still had to overcome a lot of bullsh*t just to get his foot in the door. The story of both is in the music. If you don’t know then go educate yourself. Tech N9ne is the sh*t (just needs to stop with the autotune crap and t-pain mainstream garbage), and so are ICP. Just look at where they got without radio and video play. Big ups to all independent artists…

  • Add HED(pe) and Make it a Technician, Juggalo, Renegade Orphan family record, and I will buy 2 of them 🙂

  • Nameless4ever509

    I think I tech should do some stuff with some RYDAZ shit, that would be fresh, that way its everyone. MMFWCL

  • “Tech uses more MTV and mainstream avenues than ICP did…”

                As much as this statement is true, it is untrue. Please Inform me of the “MTV and mainstream avenues” that tech used through his 12 years since SM became a label. Because all I can think of is when he won the 2009 Left Field Woodie award on mtv(Without a video, I believe) And recently with “Mama Nem” and “He’s a Mental giant”.  Outside of that he recently was promoted by and promoted Monster energy drink and Also the street teams do alot of work for them as I am a friend with the captain of the Cleveland team.

               Also as much as some will hate, Tech’s best work is with those in his posse or those in the lime light. He NEEDS to collab with Eminem/Dr Dre and other strong rappers. I HATE lil wayne and t-pain, but that track “fuck food” is good.   And “Worldwide Choppers” is the most extensive collaboration I have ever heard of, for one track. 

               So please take the time to “go educate yourself”, and get back at me……

    WHOOP! WHOOP! Fuckin Fresh as hell

    PsychoStrange. That’s what I’d call the album. Everyone from Psychopathic Records and everyone from Strange Music. ICP, Twiztid, Blaze, ABK, Boondox, Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Big Scoob, Brotha Lynch Hung, Jay Rock (and anyone on Strange I’m forgetting) put them all on an album. That’d be a bomb ass album. The two Titans of the Underground baby!
     I’m about to make a mix cd with all the Collabs that have been done between Psychopathic and Strange cus when Psychopathic and Strange come together and make music..the earth quakes baby!


    This would be the shit, I’ve been pondering a dark lotus tech n9ne collab for a while, and every time I imagine it, its pure tits. I would also love to hear Esham on a track with Tech. ABK and tech, Tech , boondox and ces crew. IF it was a four man group, I’d have to say, Violent J, Tech, Maddrox, and ABK with special guests riddled all over that mother fucker.


  • dj_psycho_juggalo

    add some project born

  • miko milenko

    fuck yea a whole album every ninja including myself would be all over that shit ive been a juggalo forever an a technician as long as he’s been around being born an raised in kcmo/kck and the shit would knock the whole underground hard, with all that being said I do believe there would be haters but fuck them for real the shit would go hard
