It’s hard to suss out the lamest part of this story about the Insane Clown Posse’s Shaggy 2 Dope trying to dropkick Fred Durst during a Limp Bizkit set at a recent festival.
Is it watching Fred Durst go through the band’s cover of “Faith” in an oversized Bo Jackson jersey like he isn’t nearly 50? Is it Shaggy trying to kickstart the least relevant feud this side of G-Eazy? Is it the fact that Shaggy 2 Dope doesn’t even manage to connect on his sneak attack drop-kick? Or maybe it’s the fact that the ICP member is trying to land a backyard wrestling move on another grown man while wearing sandals?
Don’t bother trying to pick one. Like the crowd at a 2018 Limp Bizkit concert, there are no winners.
Insane Clown Posse had played the Rock Allegiance Fest a few hours before, following GWAR in a side-stage set ahead of headliners like Papa Roach and Bizkit. The one-day fest in Camden, New Jersey was a perfect place for the rapper to reignite a feud that had persisted between Durst and ICP for decades, at least if one Reddit user is to be believed.
The theory, unearthed by Consequence of Sound, says that Shaggy has disliked Durst since they shared a bill at the disastrous Woodstock ’99.
“Well, it all started 20 years ago when ICP was trying their hardest to sell out. They performed at Woodstock and after was told ‘Fred wants to meet with you’ they had no idea who the fuck Fred was. I guess Fred Durst was a mega superstar and egoed out on them hard like wouldn’t look at them or anything while he talked,” they wrote. “He invited them on the Family Values tour with Korn and all those bands then at the last minute told them to fuck off outside and booted them.”
