I really wanted to like this book...

What would have made ICP: Behind the Paint better?

Someone OTHER than Jay narrating this book would have made it better. That and getting rid of the idiotic sound effects in the background.

How could the performance have been better?

Jay's an interesting guy and has overcome a lot in his life to get to where he is. But it's very clear that Jay is also unsophisticated. I respect the hell out of him, but he should NEVER narrate another audio book, not even one he's written. It's just unlistenable.

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.

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.
