Horrorcore rap duo, Twiztid, kicked off a Midwestern tour at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wis., on April 15. Blaze Ya Dead Homie and Smokehouse Junkiez provided support while a handful of other acts provided entertainment as a crowd began to gather at 5:30 p.m.
The Bootleg Banner tour drew a decent-sized crowd to Eagles Hall, located in the basement of the historic venue, many with faces painted in true Juggalo spirit. Shouts of "Whoop Whoop" were frequently heard during any lulls, while various fan chants were sprayed back and forth as the mood shifted.
Blaze Ya Dead Homie and Twiztid were the obvious stars on the night, each drawing strong support. Both hit the crowd with rhymes that focused on murder, death, money and drugs with a hyped-up focus on horror. Blaze performed for about 40 minutes, while Twiztid had roughly an hour on stage. Twiztid was supporting their latest EP, "Get Twiztid," which hit the streets yesterday, though Blaze dropped "Gang Rags" back in 2010. The set was well received as fans bounced with the beat and matched verses throughout the night.
