The Inner City Posse was a Detroit-area gang that had a few members that rapped on the side. The ICP had three releases, Basement Cuts, Intelligence and Violence and Dog Beats. The members of the ICP that rapped were Violent J, 2 Dope, and John Kickchass(2 Dope's brother). Violent J and 2 Dope went on to form the Insane Clown Posse while recording an album called Gangsta Codes. Halfway through the recording of this album, John quit the group and 2 Dope and J went from gangsta rap to a clownified form of horrorcore. A good portion of the former members of the Inner City Posse gang now work as employees of Psychopathic Records, the label of Twiztid, the Insane Clown Posse, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, and others.
