This Morning Freshness is in honor of John Kickjazz. Listen to Carnival of Carnage and be inspired by the album that started it all and inspired so many. It would have never been the same without him.
Entire Carnival of Carnage Playlist
Every Juggalo Should Listen to Carnival of Carnage
I’m the type of Juggalo that doesn’t care how long you’ve been down. Although, once you are a Juggalo you better listen to Carnival of Carnage! COC is about beginning and ending, ending and beginning. It started all this. This as Violent J calls it, “Juggalo Universe” was all started with COC, an album about ending evil and beginning a new path to Shangri-la. The album itself created beginnings and endings. COC was the end of John Kickjazz’s career and the beginning of Juggalos.
Carnival of Carnage is an amazing Joker’s Card. It’s initials (COC) are a palindrome. 1991, the year of its conception when ICP became Insane Clown Posse because of inspiration from the Dark Carnival that stuck Joe Bruce, is also a palindrome. Lastly, the title track of COC is the same played backwards and forwards making it a palindrome also. A palindrome being the same forwards and backwards like the concept of beginning and ending. The beginning is the end. The end is the beginning. Carnival of Carnage is a truly a magical Joker’s Card.
Thank you, John Kickjazz!
And thank you, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope!
You wouldn’t be here without the Juggalos and the Juggalos wouldn’t be here without you.
