Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J Suffering From Heart Failure, Band Planning Farewell Tour For 2022

Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J has revealed that he is sadly suffering from heart failure. As a result, the band will be heading out on a farewell tour in 2022.

Violent J said the following during a seminar at the 2021 Gathering Of The Juggalos in Thornville, OH:

“During COVID, during the time of COVID… For those of you that haven’t been to my house, the studio is probably 40 yards from my front door. So I noticed walking out to the studio every day, by the time I got to the fucking studio, I was winded. I’d be like, ‘What the fuck man, am I really this weak from not doing any shows all during COVID or whatever?’ Like what the fuck, I’m all winded and shit? Then when I’d walk up to my mailbox in the front, I’d be like ‘Oh fuck, I’ve got to take a break. What the fuck’s the problem?’

So finally my brother took me to the hospital. We went to the hospital to see what’s going on. We didn’t want to go to the hospital because it was all packed full of COVID patients, I didn’t have COVID or anything like that.

They did what they call an ultrasound. You know when they check for a baby? They did the same fucking thing. They put some gel over my heart and the lady was looking at my heart. We could tell she was tripping about something, but she wasn’t a doctor.

So she kept saying the doctor will be down here soon. The doctors were all tied up upstairs in the hospital and shit, understandably. She told me, ‘They want you to go straight home, get in bed and they’ll call you first thing in the morning.’

So I kinda had a feeling they were gonna tell me to go to the hospital when they called, and they told me to go to the hospital, you know what I’m saying? When they called, they called before the birds even woke up and fucking told me to go to the hospital, so Rob took me to the hospital.

They took me in the back and shit, and basically they just came out and told me that I have heart failure. That scared the shit out of me because we don’t have that running in our family or nothing. Well we don’t really know our relatives on the Bruce side… But far as we know, we don’t have it running in our family since my mom never had any shit like that.

So I was like ‘woah fucking heart failure, what the fuck man?’ Really scary. So basically they started doing all these… So the heart is like two parts and they beat in a fucking rhythm… Well my two parts were both pretty much spasming out. We don’t really know why.

So they gave me all these medications to see if it would just knock it back into normal rhythm and nothing was working, I was in there for probably four to five days. Then they took me into the basement and they did this thing where they put me out and they put the big fucking shockers on ya.

And they did that and they said ‘It’s either gonna work or not.’ So they did that and they were like ‘It didn’t work, but we’re gonna try again tomorrow.’

So they did it again and I woke up and they said ‘It’s working, but it can go back any minute.’ So they drove me home and it was weird because when I got out of the car and walked to the house I was 100% back to normal, it was very fucking strange.

Like after feeling like that for a couple of weeks, all of a sudden I was right back to where I’ve always been. I could run out to the fucking mailbox and back no problem. But they said any minute it could flip back. And it flipped back probably three days later.

So I went back to the hospital, and I have what they call an AFib, and there’s two types of AFibs as I understand it. There’s like a lesser minor one and a more serious one and they told me that I have the more serious one.”

He went on to say that he underwent a procedure in which doctors burned the scar tissue off his heart in an effort to fix its rhythm:

“When I woke up, they said, ‘You’re doing alright, you’re beating normal. But it could flip back any moment from now to six years from now.’ And they said ‘Once it flips back, basically you’re gonna be like…’ There’s a lot of people that live long lives with AFib… I don’t feel weaker. I mean if anybody wants to fucking test me, they can jump up.

I don’t feel weaker, but it’s very embarrassing and very not cool to have to say that you’re taking a step backwards. ‘Cause you grow up, you get stronger as you get older, you get better you get better at the shit you do. You maintain that for awhile, but there comes a time in everybody’s life where you kind of have to take your first step backward.

And yeah, I’m 49, I’m taking my step back sooner than a lot of people, but the point is, each and every person alive, if they’re lucky, will one day have to take their step back. Nobody escapes the trials and tribulations of being human, nobody.

This don’t mean anything, that I’m gonna die or anything like that. It just means basically, we can’t do things the way we used to do. So…there’s really no way around it. We can’t really tour no more the way we were touring.

We’re gonna do one more tour next year around the world. We’re gonna do all the major markets the United States, and the b markets, and then we’re gonna go to Europe and Canada and Australia. It’s gonna be a slow tour, so it’s only gonna be like 3 or 4 shows a week. And that’s gonna be a farewell tour.

But check it out, this is a fact right here. That don’t mean we’re not playing. We’re gonna play every Juggalo weekend, every Hallowicked, every fucking Ballers, every event. Pretty much we’re gonna do a show somewhere every month—one show a month is our plan. It’s gonna be somewhere different.

So eventually we’ll probably come to your town. But we’re definitely going to come to your town on the farewell tour next year… It’s just a case of, it’s not a wise move… They’re not really too amped on me doing shows, period. But it’s not a very wise move to get out and play six shows a week with that situation…”

He later continued:

“So, to let everybody know, yeah ya know we’re not gonna be touring the way we used to, and that’s why we felt it was important to go ahead and come clean about the situation. But we’re gonna play all the time, we been playing, we been doing shows. And we’re gonna try to make the farewell tour the fucking dopest…”

He also added:

“Without touring, that absolutely means we’re gonna put out much more music. I want to make it clear, making music is not affected in any way, shape or form by anything going on with Shaggy or myself health-wise. We’re ready to fucking kick ass in the studio and that’s a fact.”

Insane Clown Posse Discuss Making Blood On The Dance Floor’s Dahvie Vanity “Juggalo Enemy Number 1” In New Interview With Chris Hansen

As previously reported, Insane Clown Posse recently declared Blood On The Dance Floor’s Dahvie Vanity as “Juggalo Enemy Number 1” and asked their fans to beat him down after they found out about the disturbing rape and sexual misconduct allegations against him. Now, during an appearance on “Have A Seat With Chris Hansen,” Insane Clown Posse‘s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope further discussed their decision to take on Vanity.

Violent J said the following:

“What it was about this particular guy, this particular investigation, is of course it hit so close to home for us. Because technically this guy does the exact same for a living [as we do]… It’s a rare profession, it’s not like everybody does this, it’s a rare job…. It’s a unique job

So this guy is doing exactly what we do, to the point where we have clown paint on and we have certain things that people would call our gimmick… And Dahvie Vanity, his gimmick would be the crazy hair, the wigs you know… Trying to act crazy on stage, and that’s his gimmick.”

Shaggy 2 Dope continued after being asked if they knew Vanity before calling him out:

“No, what you’ve got to understand is this man, our whole career we’ve been totally against any kind of pedophiling or touching children, loudly speaking about it our whole career, in our music. Not just outspoken about it in interviews, but in songs, in our music.

It goes back to the beginning of our music career. So obviously when we found out about Dahvie, Dahvie, the pedophile boy. We couldn’t just sit there and not say nothing. It’s like come on man, he’s doing what we’re doing… And I can’t understand the concept of molesting kids at all, it doesn’t enter my mind. But yeah, he’s doing what we’re doing, but taking advantage of the situation and getting with this little girls. It’s literally insane.”

Violent J went on to say that Vanity “was literally on tour molesting kids on a molestation tour!” He later added that “it almost appears like he created the entire band for the purpose…” before Shaggy 2 Dope chimed in with: “For the sole purpose of molesting young girls.”

Violent J also had the following to say when asked why they told the Juggalos to be beat Vanity down:

“What the hell is going on? What is going on right now? Ten years? Ten years? This guy? He got arrested three times… Got arrested and let off like three times? When? When then? He’s still actively doing it right now. When do we get to say let’s get him and take him down. When is it okay? He’s actively hurting people.”

One of Vanity’s alleged victims, Mal Levy, who said she was sexually assaulted when she was only 15, was also involved in the chat and responded by saying she would rather see him serve proper justice:

“We definitely want him to go to jail and have to be there for the rest of his life and have to just be in there wigless and lame as shit and then made somebody’s bitch. For the first-time ever, it’s under FBI investigation, finally.

And that is why it’s different now. Beforehand, you know, he has gone to jail. He’s been arrested. Several girls have filed reports—or tried to but law enforcement failed them terribly back in the day…”

Violent J later continued:

“I know it might have been the smartest thing to do is put a tweet out and say ‘juggalos you know what to do, pick up something heavy and issue a beatdown’. That may not have been the smartest way to do it. But my question is. What do we do when there’s an active, unconvicted, real human being monster.

[A] hunchback, dragging a foot, wings, horns—all of that—walking around in public right now. Right now. That we all know about. We all know about it. And he’s just out here, what we do do? You just gonna actually let him walk by you? this creature from hell? What do you do?”

He also added:

“I don’t want him to die, let me make that clear. I don’t want him to die at all. Just by chance there’s no hell, that would be way too easy of him getting off.”
