This success has leaked into the visual arts well as world, where Insane Clown Posse videos, both documentary and feature, now number five. Big Money Hustlas was their first effort in 2000, followed up with Death Racers in 2008 and most recently, Big Money Rustlas in 2010.
All too often, musicians take their acting careers too seriously, and disappointment is the result when box office sales are low and critics are harsh. Insane Clown Posse videos provide evidence that neither Violent J nor Shaggy 2 Dope fall victim to this typical music-actor transition error, because Insane Clown Posse videos are of the B movie comedy type, where nothing is to be taken too seriously. Enter Big Money Rustlas.
Big Money Rustlas Review
As seemingly random as some of the artistic directions Insane Clown Posse takes with their career, it would make sense for Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope to come out of left field and make a film like Big Money Rustlas -- an old timey Western Insane Clown Posse video.
Big Money Rustlas begins with Big Baby Chips (Violent J) sitting around a poker table at the Hatchetman Saloon, winning his vast earnings through deception and threats which doesn't hesitate to carry out. It becomes apparent immediately that Big Baby Chips is the Big Money Rustla of the land, and has the town ofMud Bug wrapped around his finger. That is, until Sugar Wolf (Shaggy 2 Dope) arrives.
Having been sent away from Mud Bug as a child, Sugar Wolf has returned to check in on things. Once his mother (the resident prostitute) tells him about Big Baby Chips and how all the town's people live in fear, Sugar Wolf takes it upon himself to avenge his father's death (a past sheriff who died at the hands of Big Baby) by becoming the new sheriff in town.
Big Money Rustlas Showdown
Big Money Rustlas chief antagonist Big Baby Chips and protagonist Sheriff Sugar Wolf become archenemies instantaneously, and a series of attempts to assassinate Sugar Wolf are enacted by Big Baby Chips.
Comedic moments abound throughout this Insane Clown Posse video, with dwarfs, inept sidekicks (played by Psychopathic Records' artists Monoxide and Madrox), constant perverse humor, and even villains who shoot lasers out of their eyes. Real life Big money rustlas Vanilla Ice, Dustin Diamond, and Ron Jeremy all make cameo appearances in this Insane Clown Posse video.
Being the Insane Clown Posse video that it is, Big Money Rustlas is at its best when the unpredictable twists come in. And there are many.
