Inspiring

I really enjoyed this read. Especially coming from the author however there are some instances where it becomes childish and his sense of humour is an acquired taste. Overall I loved the read its a very personal and enjoyable look into his side of the life he has lead. Very inspiring. Listened to this about 4 times since I got it.

Good read even if you are not a juggalo

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, its a great story about the struggles before ICP got famous and to some it might be inspiring, I recommend this to anyone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of ICP: Behind the Paint?

I got to say the time they were on the road and almost got killed by men in black robes, scary but a great story.

Have you listened to any of Violent J’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Music yes

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

This is a great example of don't judge a book by its cover, just because its from ICP don't mean it's not a great story, love every single minute of it. All though the way Violent J talked was a little annoying sometimes, but it was worth it.

I'm no Juggalo but I'm definitely down with the clown

Violent J doesn't just read this, he tells it all to you In a way that makes even the most mundane portions of the book highly entertaining. I'm not big on their music, but I definitely believe ICP is a good thing for this world. Clown Love!

Icp on audiobook narration of behind the paint

I am up to the ringmaster section as I type this. It’s very animated by violent j, joe Bruce, as the talker. They inspire how poor they lived, how their youth, gaining faith in a power higher than us. It inspires you, a high school dropout, magnets how do they work, hated by the word, Joe Bruce drives the message of the hard work it took to get where they are. Step by step promoting til their feet were sore, PUTTING IN HARD WORK is the moral.... so far I highly enjoy this so far

This is an amazing audiobook

I have read the original printed copy at least 8 times. I think it is a great book originally but the Audiobook is even better. i love the added sections of the book that weren't in the original plus just hearing violent j tell the story himself makes meel feel like im chilling with him at my house and hearing him tell the story in person, i definitely recommend it to any icp fan or anyone that enjoys a good story 10/10

Everything you'd hope for and better

this is quintessential for any juggalo, and an important read even for other ninjas. I'm down for life, and this was the best audio book I've ever heard.

Thank you ICP!

Once upon a time I found a strange single EP called Hokus Pokus (headhunterz edition) and low and behold 20 years later I'm listening to an audio book by violent J. what started as mere curiosity spiralled into obsession as I was absorbed into the dark carnival. If you are a juggalo, you know what I mean. This book brought back so many feelings and emotions that I felt when I first discovered icp and their story. Thank you icp for all the incredible and fresh nostalgia. it answers many questions, explores J's upbringing, details the struggle, the success, the ups and downs, all while inspiring you to do the same. Failure is NOT an option.

I could listen to this book all day. I couldn't WAIT to go out for a walk or grab a bus or hop in my car. sadly I completed it but god Damn am I gonna listen to it again!

this book is Inspiring, real, beautiful, crazy, hilarious, sad, exciting, and very VERY FRESH

Thank you J amd Shaggy.

Much Irish clown love.

Best autobiography, full of the truth!

Everything about it was great. Violent J tells his life story very well. His narration is on point and ropes you in to every line. The extra flavour at the end was pure and fresh.

Read it

Somehow managed improve on the original text!

Having read the original hardback way back on release I wasn't sure what the audio could bring to the proceedings. However I was pleased to find violent J's narration, sound effects and occasional off book ramblings made for an entirely new experience. As a juggalo for the better part of 20 years I have an appreciation for all things ICP or psychopathic, but even for those who may not be such ardent fans there really is a lot to enjoy about this book.
It is long though....extremely long! But amazingly remained entertaining for it's almost day long running time!

Highly recommended to hardcore fans or even those with just a passing interest. I can't wait for the sequel!

A great story

I'm not a fan of their music, but if 50% of what was said is true - then a great rags to rich story - well Juggalo rich
