They’ve still got the built-in, cultishly devoted Juggalo following; now they’ve got some actual crossover recognition, too. That unlikely swirl has led to a peculiar lineup for the 13th-annual Gathering of the Juggalos, going down in August at Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, and announced today via a 23-minute infomercial.
Also, the afternoon BBQ, which will have “thousands of free cheesEburgers, hot dogs, and ice cold Faygo raining from the stage” is being soundtracked by a Michael Jackson tribute band. Most importantly, there’s this lineup. The Psychopathic Records family might not do much for you non-Jugga-laga-los, and the epic collection of white rappers — from Rittz to Haystak to Kottonmouth Kings to, yep, Lil Wyte — on hand might not, either. But how about a reunited Geto Boys? The Game? Pharcyde? George Clinton? Raekwon? Danny Brown? DMX?
