ICP member tried to dropkick Fred Durst this weekend and failed miserably

It’s a beef that goes back 20 years and if the antics of this past weekend are anything to go by then it’s not going away any time soon

A performance by Limp Bizkit at the Rock Allegiance Festival in Camden, New Jersey this the weekend was briefly interrupted after Shaggy 2 Dope of Insane Clown Posse attempted to dropkick singer Fred Durst off the stage.

After Limp Bizkit finished performing their version of George Michael’s “Faith”, Shaggy 2 Dope stormed the stage and attempted to attack Durst from behind with a pretty poor excuse of a flying kick.

Not making any real contact with his kick before falling to the ground and being wrestled away by security staff, it was a pretty epic fail by one half of the Detroit rap outfit, especially as Durst wasn’t phased even a little bit by the attack.

“What a pussy, couldn’t even pull it off,” Durst told the crowd.

As a fight then ensued at the side of the stage, Durst added: “It’s one guy, calm down it’s one guy,” before telling audience members “let’s give that guy a hand” and starting a chorus of “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, hey, goodbye.”

The beef between the two bands dates back about 20 years to when ICP played Woodstock and Fred Durst expressed that he wanted to meet both Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J after their set. ICP apparently had no clue who Durst was and the Limp Bizkit frontman took offence to this and from that moment on ICP were on his shit list and he treated them accordingly.

It’s said that one time Durst invited them on the Family Values tour with Korn and a bunch of other bands but then at the last minute told them to “fuck off” and booted them off the tour.

This isn’t the first time that Insane Clown Posse have been embroiled in an ongoing beef with another artist. They were famously the butt of many jokes made by Eminem – listen to the “Ken Kaniff” skit on his The Marshall Mathers LP album – back in the late 90s/early 2000s.
