The group decided that its gangsta rap style was the cause of the problem: Most rappers at the time used similar styles, making it difficult for Inner City Posse to distinguish itself stylistically.
Referring to local rapper Esham's acid rap style, Bruce suggested the band adapt this genre, in a bid to have Detroit represent acid rap, much as Los Angeles represented gangsta rap.
The follow-up EP, Beverly Kills 50187, sold well and gained a larger audience.
During a live performance of the song "The Juggla", Bruce addressed the audience as Juggalos, and the positive response resulted in the group using the word thereafter.
Disney also asked that the lyrics of other tracks be changed, threatening to not release the album otherwise.
The group was also informed that its in-store signings and nationwide tour had been canceled, commercials for the album and the music video for "Halls of Illusions" (which had reached #1 on The Box video request channel) were pulled from television, and that the group was dropped from the label.
Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop duo from Delray, Detroit.
The group comprises Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler, who perform under the respective personas of the murderous, wicked clowns Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.
In late 1991 the group invested more money into production than was covered by returns.Bruce and Utsler were already fans of ECW, as Van Dam had been sending videotapes of the show to them since its first airing.They agreed to appear and went to Florida to discuss the ECW program's content with Van Dam, Sabu, and Paul Heyman.They formed their own wrestling federation, Juggalo Championship Wrestling, and later collaborated with many famous hip hop and rock musicians.The themes of Insane Clown Posse and other acts on Psychopathic Records center on the mythology of the Dark Carnival, a spiritual force that has revealed a series of stories known as Joker's Cards.
After Jive Records showed little interest in promoting the album, Insane Clown Posse funded the promotion of Riddle Box independently.
