Todays top hip hop music — or the top hip hop music of any era for that matter — is almost always edgy to say the least. From infamous rap group N.W.A in the early 90s and their cop killing lyrics to more modern top hip hop music where lyrics are heavily sexual, top hip hop music has always found away to weasel its way into the mainstream while remaining controversial.
But with time, the fans of top hip hop music become desensitized. The lyrics that were once rebellious and disdainful become yesterdays vanilla news. Hence, new micro-genres are born, like that of rapidly growing horror rap.
What is horror rap? Its plainly described as anti-top hip hop music filled with horror-themed lyrical content and imagery. Because horror rap is about as far as one can travel from top hip hop music and still remain somewhat in the same genre, its surprising that some groups find a way to sell well with horror rap.
The most successful horror rap group is unarguably Detroits horror rap duo, the Insane Clown Posse.
Yet therein lies a contradiction. If horror rap is about horror-themed content, then why is a group with not-so-subtle Christian lyrics like Insane Clown Posse (see Insane Clown Posses Miracle lyrics) still considered horror rap?
Better yet, how is the group still gaining more and more new fans after Insane Clown Posses Miracle lyrics revealed them as spiritual?
Sure, there are plenty of ICP songs that dont involve any mention of Christianity, but one would tend to think even the slightest mention of a mainstream fixture like Christianity would turn most Juggalos away. Not so.
The first time ICP told the world they were Christian (or at least spiritual thats another debate) was in The Unveiling, where the lyrics go: When we speak of Shangri-La, what you think we mean? Truth is we follow GOD! Even few top hip hop music artists are that blatant about their religious beliefs.
Insane Clown Posses Miracles lyrics (potentially Christian-tinted) have been the brunt of mainstream jokes since it was released in 2009 see Saturday Night Lives Insane Clown Posse Miracles lyrics parody. Asking honest questions like Magnets, how do they work?, Insane Clown Posses Miracles lyrics are members Shaggy 2 Dopes and Violent s way of expressing their wonderment of the universe.
Though all instances within Insane Clown Posses Miracles lyrics do have scientific explanations, the band chooses to keep them shrouded in mystery they say makes life more entertaining. Do they believe the miracles spoken of in Insane Clown Posses Miracles lyrics are acts of God rather than science? You be the judge.
Regardless, Insane Clown Posses Miracles lyrics are a strange amalgamation of religion, horror rap and clowns, the likes of which may never be seen again.
