Juggalos of the world will be sad at this news. Their beloved Insane Clown Posse is wrapping up the 2021 edition of their Gathering of the Juggalos and they had a sad announcement to make.

Violent J revealed that he’s been suffering from heart failure, so the band needs to take a break. They will no longer be able to do long tours due to his condition.

J said that he has been through multiple procedures to treat his condition, but he still has an irregular heartbeat. They will have one final farewell tour in 2022, and you can bet it will be a wild one.

“For those of you that haven’t been to my house, the studio is probably 40 yards from my front door,” Violent J said. “I noticed walking out to the studio every day, by the time I got to the f*cking studio, I was winded. “Then when I’d walk up to my mailbox, I’d be like, ‘Oh f*ck, I’ve got to take a break.’ What the f*ck’s the problem? We went to the hospital to see what’s going on. They did an ultrasound. The lady who was looking at my heart, we could tell she was tripping about something, but she wasn’t a doctor. The doctors were all tied up upstairs in the hospital, understandably. She told me, ‘They want you to go straight home, get in bed and they’ll call you first thing in the morning. They called before the birds even woke up and f*cking told me to go to the hospital. They took me in the back and sh*t, and basically they just came out and told me I have heart failure. That scared the sh*t out of me.”

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
