One of the best sets at the Gathering of the Juggalos every year is Tech N9ne. It’s so funny how many people love this dude. My friends into mainstream rap love him, juggalos ride for him so fucking hard and even my girlfriend gave me shit when I asked her if she knew Tech N9ne. Turns out she is a huge fan. For a dude that everyone fucking loves I am surprised he doesn’t get more top 40 play… at least I would be if his songs weren’t so fucked up and weird and awesome.
Non-juggalos seem surprised that Tech N9ne would play the Gathering every year, but not only does Tech N9ne love playing the Gathering he actually has a song that sugests you can swallow his dick if you talk shit about juggalos. Juggalos on the other hand universally love Tech N9ne like no other rapper. Outside Psychopathic Records artists there are only two musicians that every juggalo seems down with: Kottonmouth Kings and Tech N9ne. It’s a very weird combination.
Anyway, I was excited for Tech N9ne’s set and I shot the entire thing for two reasons. 1) As I previously mentioned Tech N9ne is awesome. 2) Tech N9ne gets every girl in the crowd topless. I have no idea how he does it but he does a song called Areola and every single juggalette gets on someones shoulders and takes her top off. At one point in the set Tech N9ne asks people to throw him their bras and panties and he runs around for a song holding a huge handful of undoubtedly disgusting underwear. There are photos in this set where you can see more than a dozen girls topless at the same time. It’s pretty wild.
I can’t show any of that in the preview pics below because I am too lazy to censor all those boobs in one shot, but just know these pictures are pretty awesomely NSFW even if there are a few (a lot) of juggalettes in the crowd you probably don’t actually want to see with their shirts off.
The Gathering of the Juggalos is a yearly music festival in Cave In Rock, IL created by the Insane Clown Posse that I have now photographed three times. Every year it produces some of the best photos I have ever taken. To see my complete GOTJ archives please click here.
