Second best isn't that bad, right? To call horrorcore rappers Twiztid — Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child — the second most popular Juggalo act (after Insane Clown Posse) doesn't seem all that fair. ICP are the originators, of course, making Madrox and Child something like apostles to Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's Jesus. The duo has spread the good word of the Faygo-drenched lifestyle, appearing on Juggalo imprint Psychopathic Records' Big Money Hustla$, which featured the two starring alongside Rudy Ray Moore, Harland Williams, and more. The band's been a prolific part of the ICP empire, and its success speaks to the power of independent hip-hop. It might come off as goofy to the uninitiated (or the kind of folks opposed to getting face-blasted with sugary soda), but Twiztid's pulling in serious cash and keeping fans happy. The band's recently released 10th effort, AbominationZ, incorporates rock elements, courtesy of producer Michael Summers, who's produced efforts by Twiztid ally and former tour-mate Tech N9ne. The deluxe edition of the record features guest verses from Royce da 5'9", Krizz Kaliko, Glasses Malone, and, you guessed it, the band's bosses, ICP.
