Top 10 Most Disturbing Insane Clown Posse Songs

icpI usually don’t do music related content, but I thought the idea of compiling a list of the most disturbing songs that Insane Clown Posse has done (so far) would make up for a fun video. So if you like your rap mixed with a little bit of horror and a lot of insanity then this list is for you.

Even if you are not into Insane Clown Posse, I think this list might be of interest as I feel like I dwelve enough into each song to hopefully make you want to check out their stuff.

This is the story of Elvis Presley, who went from being a poor kid from Memphis to growing up and becoming the biggest musical act and a cultural icon that will never be forgotten. His start came when he was signed to Sun Records, where he was allowed to do so-called “African American” music and bring it out to a wider audience.

Right after he started to make his mark in music history, he became a brand and was able to act in movies and sell out shows worldwide. His dabbled in all kind of music, from rock and roll to gospel and everything he did became a hit seller. Even though he was highly successful, he had his own demons and family issues to deal with and his story was not all roses.

Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap

somethingfromnothingGenre: Documentary / Music
Year: 2012
Country: USA

Director: Ice-T, Andy Baybutt
Starring: Ice-T, Dr. Dre, Chuck D, Eminem, Grandmaster Caz

 

Hip Hop didn’t invent anything, Hip Hop reinvented everything!

 

Ice-T sets out to give the audience some insight into how the masterminds of hip-hop is able to create the songs that have become legendary in the hip-hop community. He travels from coast to coast and talks to legends such as Grandmaster Caz, KRS-One and Melle Mel about that thought process behind their successful raps.

Ice-T tries to put some much needed focus on the creative process of writing lyrics in this documentary and while the idea is great, the result is only ok. There are too many interview subjects so you don’t feel that you get very deep into the thought process of every artist, but instead are delivered some snippets of how the artists themselves describes their own process.

It is however nice to hear how much work is put into the lyrics of these legends considering how hip-hop is these days where rappers brag about knocking out songs in fifteen minutes. It’s almost a nostalgic look on when lyrics was important to the art craft and if there is anyone who should see this and take notes, it is the rappers of today and the aspiring ones for the future.

The film that redefines group therapy

 

In 2001, Metallica is trying to get their shit together to create a new album. By then the band is considered to be the biggest metal band of all time, but they are having trouble within the band. After bass player Jason Newstead has decides to leave the band, the remaining members decide to hire the therapist Phil Towle to help them get through their troubles.

They continue to have group therapy while starting sessions to create material for the new album, but vocalist Jason Hetfield does not seem focused or happy and ends up checking in to rehab. After he gets out and the band gets back together they continue to work on the new album and also sets out to find the replacement for Newstead.

This is a documentary about the state of Metallica at the time of filming and does not require you to be a huge fan of the band to enjoy it. It’s more about a band that has made it, done much more than they ever would have hoped and are now struggling to keep their head on the ground.
