Most juggalos still blame J10, citing that the police are corrupt (but won't go into details about why the police would falsify a report that doesn't implicate them on anything), while deep down knowing something doesn't smell right. J10 was recently interviewed by FaygoLuvers.net about the situation, went into more detail about the issue, and gave a little more information than was expected (while at the same time, delivering the message that this very site has been giving for years).
In the interview, J10 holds nothing back; mentioning that Joe Bruce's kids are being raised into the very people he himself hates, and saying that in Psychopathic, if you're not ICP, then you're not making money. What really stood out was what Violent J allegedly said to Blaze, so it could be passed down back to J10: "Tell him to fuck off. He's a Juggalo, he'll understand."
Aside from the rest of the interview and what we already know about Psychopathic, that one quote alone begs to question so many things. Is this really how little they think of their fans? Is that some kind of command? "You're a Juggalo, and I'm Violent J; so you do what the fuck I say." Or is that another way of saying, "You had your fun time with us, now time's up. You have to go back to hero worship, dreaming of fame and merch consumption. Make us some money!"
Of course a lot of newer juggalos aren't going to give J10 the benefit of the doubt, or they'll listen while doubting him. But as another old school Juggalo, I trust he's telling the truth because a lot of what he's saying makes sense. Especially if you actually open your eyes and see what ICP and Psychopathic are doing. They have all changed as people, and it's evident in what they do and the music they make now, which has changed radically. It could be because of money, because of fame, because Juggalettes are willing to throw themselves at them, or it could be a combination of all of the above. But they aren't the same people they were in their heyday, and juggalos aren't the same as they were back then, either. See, old school juggalos can relate to that message, and it's about damn time that someone who just came out of Psychopathic has spread the message further.
It goes to show you that the shift in the Juggalo world affects people's careers. A lot of Juggalos are saying, "Let's just let this die." Why? It's not dying for J10, who's probably still receiving death threats. ICP is still going to mislead their fans, perpetrating the negative Juggalo image that they make everyone think borders on World War III.
Instead, why not keep this in the back of our minds, if only to show that ICP and Psychopathic may not be the people we thought we knew?
Anyway, FaygoLuvers didn't post the interview, which fits their motif of backing away from any message about the state of Juggalos that rivals what Psychopathic says (for instance, what was said about this site).
What do you guys think of this drama with J-10?
