Very Special Holiday Wishes From Violent J

Sophisticated wordsmith and science fanatic, Violent J, tweeted Thanksgiving good tidings on Thursday. Being the classy lad that he is, the message was every bit as restrained and tasteful as you would expect.

Poetry.

If you are not aware of who this talented gentleman is, well, you’re luckier than I am! But now, not so much! Because I’m going to tell you!

Violent J is half of the rap duo ICP (Innocuous Carnival Proprietors). Along with his partner, Gunnar Nelson, these two Detroit scholars wax philosophical about life, love, basic scientific principals, and something called ‘The Dark Carnival’, which, if I am to understand correctly, is an affirmative action program designed to help some of Detroit’s unemployed African American population. Good for them, I say.

ICP(Inconceivable Cavalry Purloiners), speak to our nation’s youth in a new musical style called ‘Hip-Hop’. I don’t know abut you guys, but I think this ‘Hip-Hop’ thing might really take off. I’ve been wrong before though. Remember the McRib? Man, nobody wants that damn thing. The duo are also filmmakers, their first feature film, ‘Big Money Rustlas’ debuted earlier this year. You can order it here. In addition to that, they also produce amateur wrestling videos, the proceeds from which go directly to the Ol’ Dirty Bastard Memorial Children’s Fund.

As if all that wasn’t enough, they also host ‘The Gathering Of The Juggalos’. Juggalos are mentally deficient adolescents that these charitable people feed and entertain for four days. For more information on The Gathering Of The Juggalos, go here.

God bless these lads. Let them continue to do God’s work.
