    "I really wanted to like this book..."
    What would have made ICP: Behind the Paint better?

    Someone OTHER than Jay narrating this book would have made it better. That and getting rid of the idiotic sound effects in the background.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Jay's an interesting guy and has overcome a lot in his life to get to where he is. But it's very clear that Jay is also unsophisticated. I respect the hell out of him, but he should NEVER narrate another audio book, not even one he's written. It's just unlistenable.

    "Good read even if you are not a juggalo"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, its a great story about the struggles before ICP got famous and to some it might be inspiring, I recommend this to anyone.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of ICP: Behind the Paint?

    I got to say the time they were on the road and almost got killed by men in black robes, scary but a great story.


    Have you listened to any of Violent J’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Music yes


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great example of don't judge a book by its cover, just because its from ICP don't mean it's not a great story, love every single minute of it. All though the way Violent J talked was a little annoying sometimes, but it was worth it.

    "I'm no Juggalo but I'm definitely down with the clown"

    Violent J doesn't just read this, he tells it all to you In a way that makes even the most mundane portions of the book highly entertaining. I'm not big on their music, but I definitely believe ICP is a good thing for this world. Clown Love!

    "A must for every Juggalo"

    This is an awesome, hilarious and real story of how ICP came to be. Violent J tells every story behind every joker's can, every tour and every bump In the road that they had to endure. Interesting throughout and entertaining as hell!

    "As an old school Juggalo I loved, loved this book."

    As an old school Juggalo I absolutely loved this book and I'm left wanting more I hate reading so audiobook is the way to go for me. When Violent J is running through the history of each Jocker's card it takes me back in my own history and what I was doing at that time and I can't help but smile. The Wicked Clowns will never die and imma be down until I'm dead in the ground! All you real ninjas know exactly what that means! MCL WHOOP WHOOP!

    I loved it all the way through! Violent Jay does a great job jumping between the book and the expanded content. I have been a Juggalo for years and still learned alot from it.

    "Thank you ICP!"

    Once upon a time I found a strange single EP called Hokus Pokus (headhunterz edition) and low and behold 20 years later I'm listening to an audio book by violent J. what started as mere curiosity spiralled into obsession as I was absorbed into the dark carnival. If you are a juggalo, you know what I mean. This book brought back so many feelings and emotions that I felt when I first discovered icp and their story. Thank you icp for all the incredible and fresh nostalgia. it answers many questions, explores J's upbringing, details the struggle, the success, the ups and downs, all while inspiring you to do the same. Failure is NOT an option.

    I could listen to this book all day. I couldn't WAIT to go out for a walk or grab a bus or hop in my car. sadly I completed it but god Damn am I gonna listen to it again!

    this book is Inspiring, real, beautiful, crazy, hilarious, sad, exciting, and very VERY FRESH

    Thank you J amd Shaggy.

    Much Irish clown love.

    "Pure Juggalo paradise within"

    This is the best book I have ever read and now heard. Listen as Violent J recalls his whole life in great detail. Pure honesty and insight lies within. The man is a genius, what an incredible story.

    I'm not a fan of their music, but if 50% of what was said is true - then a great rags to rich story - well Juggalo rich
