Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J of the Insane Clown Posse stopped by to talk to Howard that their recent viral hit song and video. Shaggy said the song was inspired by an encounter with a pelican in San Francisco.

“That trips you out if you’re from Detroit. We don’t have pelicans with giant beaks and all that. It’s unfortunate because it’s beautiful,” Shaggy said.

Howard asked if they wanted more critical acclaim, but Violent J dismissed the idea. “If we were respected and loved like that, we wouldn’t be what we are. We wouldn’t be the most hated band in the world. I don’t give a f’ about a Grammy,” J said.

J pointed to the Dayton Family, an ICP-affiliated collective, that’s producing material he thinks deserves more critical attention, especially their recently produced “classy” music video.

“No naked bitches. Just cocaine flying everywhere,” J said.
