Isn't being "amusing" the entire point behind entertainment?
What do you think about Esham?
He was one of ICP's biggest influences - and it's extremely obvious in their material. They ripped their favorite aspects of his style, added some dick and fart jokes, ditched the satanic allusions, and that was that.
You guys seem to expect so much from a group called the Insane Clown Posse. They are rapping clowns from one of the poorest cities in America...who just so happen to be serial killing servants of "The Dark Carnival".
Most people don't pick up a cheesy slasher flick expecting high art. I happen to adore schlock, and dick and fart jokes, and serial killers who chop up cops, and baseheads, and wife beating bigots; eat dead bodies, drink Faygo, and fuck fat chicks.
Sounds a lot more "amusing" to me than what's played on the radio these days. Especially with all the yelling.
