Where's God? Insane Clown Posse's Violent J speaks frankly about God and religion

Since the early '90s, Insane Clown Posse has built itself into what is arguably the most successful independent band of all time. The cult of fandom surrounding ICP is unprecedented and notorious (the FBI considers Juggalos to be a gang). Outside its home state of Michigan, the polarizing act has developed a large and extremely devoted fan base, including here in Colorado. We had the rare opportunity to speak at length with the personable and thoughtful Violent J about the act's latest video, "Where's God?" and the nature of his spiritual beliefs.
