      We know the wait for the Bang! Pow! Boom! Nuclear Edition hasn’t been easy, Juggalos. When you’re looking forward to an album so devastating and packed to the edges with so much flavor it can seem like it’s taking forever for it to drop. But the wait is just about over! On Tuesday, April 6th the brand new edition of Bang! Pow! Boom! will be available nationwide and just waiting for you to get your hands on it!

      In case you’ve missed out on the massive wig flipping freshness that’s waiting for you inside this wicked package of silver and gold, allow us to give you a little recap of everything that will greet you inside your Bang! Pow! Boom! Nuclear Edition!

      For starters, it’s a three disc set! Everything the Insane Clown Posse wanted to include wasn’t even close to being contained on one disc! Not even two! It took THREE discs to get all the added bonuses and features into this album!

Disc two will have the three hidden songs from the Green, Blue, and Red Bang! Pow! Boom! albums! You’ll also get THREE brand new never before heard joints all recorded during the original Bang! Pow! Boom! sessions! In addition to that you’ll get the hard to get your hands on Bang! Pow! Boom! sampler that was only available during the days of the street team, but it will now be YOURS!

      Finally, disc three will contain not one, but TWO music videos! The first is the widely popular video for “In Yo’ Face!” In addition to that you’ll also get the music video for “Miracles.” What’s that?

      The Insane Clown Posse are keeping busy and hitting all the Juggalos with another big album! This one is a nod back to their roots as they bring you ICP The Old Shit! The ruthless tunes from way back in the day are being pulled out, brushed off, and gathered into one high impact CD that will leave your brain matter smeared all over the wall when you pop it into your CD player!

      For the first time ever all that bangin’ bass bumpin’ good shit from all the way back on Dog Beats up until The Jeckel Brothers will be compiled onto one face melting CD for all the Juggalos to enjoy! Make a note of that! This is STRICTLY a Juggalo

CD, because everyone at Psychopathic Records already knows that this is way too devastating for anyone outside of the hatchet to handle.

      Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have gone through stacks of CDs carefully putting together the best mix of old school wicked clown shit!

      It's a return to the shit most hated by the masses! The shit that was too hard for some labels and was so off the wall that it had to be pulled from store shelves! This is the music that earned the Insane Clown Posse the title of The Most Hated Band In The World!

      ICP The Old Shit will be dropping on May 14th, but don't head out to your stores to try to find this album. It won't be there! The stores are too scared to carry this shit! They're too weak!

      The only places you will be able to pick up this dome splitting album are on the road or on hatchetgear.com! That means if you're hitting up The Happy Daze Tour this Spring you can pick it up there starting May 14th!

Boondox Is Bringing South of Hell to the World

      With absolute confidence it can be said that when it comes to rapping, Boondox has a style all his own. While many artists are shouting out the big cities and talking about how hard it is to hustle on the dark, dirty streets of large urban settings, Boondox has gone in a completely different route.

      Walking down a pitch black, dirt road in the dead of night, barely a sound can be heard except for crickets and the occasional cracking of branches. No street lights. No cars. And that is when the monster strikes. City thugs don’t have anything on the Southern Skarcrow.

      This will be proven in Boondox’s next nationwide release which is hitting shelves May 11th, and is entitled South of Hell. He has pushed himself to painful limits when it comes to what he has laid out on this record. Nothing is held back. Nothing is off limits. And it's all set to a backdrop of devastating beats by none other than Mike E. Clark, a legend in his own right, producer.

      As if fifteen tracks of mutilation mastery isn’t enough, included with the CD will be a DVD containing an honest look at Boondox through the eyes of director Paul Andreson and his film crew. While South of Hell was in the works Paul and his team followed Boondox with cameras, interviewing his closest friends, family members, and labelmates to get firsthand accounts of what the man behind the music is like.

      There is no way for Juggalos to prepare themselves for what they are going to discover. Boondox is well known for being a man of few words, but the stories that line his past are as deep and brutal as he is. The curtain will be pulled back for all to see, and it's unclear how people will react.

      Are you ready? We suppose that answer can only be answered on May 11th, when South of Hell hits the world.

      Everyone remembers back in January when Psychopathic Records put on a red carpet event, talked about all over the country. It was to celebrate the premiere of Big Money Rustlas on the big screen! Tons of Juggalos packed together with all the big name stars of the movie to witness history in the making, an event that was in the works for ten years!

      Not everyone could make it that night. It just wasn’t possible, but this movie needs to be seen by every Juggalo on the planet! And we know you all

want to see it, too! So, Psychopathic Records has officially announced that at the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos they will once again be showing the movie for everyone to see and witness the magic for themselves.

      As fresh as that is, they’re upping the ante. In addition to being able to see the movie on the big screen with all of your family you will also be able to purchase Big Money Rustlas on DVD! That’s right! Not only will you get to watch the movie, but you’ll be able to walk out of the Gathering with your own copy in hand so that you can watch it repeatedly at home and wear the DVD out. We know it’s going to happen, it’s that good!

      That news had a lot of wigs flipping around the Hatchet Herald Headquarters, but Psychopathic Records isn’t even close to being done yet! C’mon, ten years in the making? You know they’re going to make this HUGE!

      August 17th marks the national release of the DVD. That means anyone will be able to go onto hatchetgear.com or walk into their local store and pick Big Money Rustlas up for themselves!

      In addition to the movie being available to anyone who wants to get their hands on (who wouldn’t?), there is also a Big Money Rustlas Theatrical Tour in the works! Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, better known in the Wicked Wild West as Big Baby Chips and Sugar Wolf, will be taking the film across the country and holding their own theatrical releases of the film in venues near you!

      So, anyone that missed out on the premiere in Detroit, Michigan will get their own chance to see this masterpiece on the big screen, surrounded by your Psychopathic Family! The Hatchet has dominated the underground music scene and now they have their sights on movies.

Watch out, Hollyweird!
