Dark Lotus Info
Members: Jamie Madrox, Monoxide Child, Violent J, Shaggy 2 Dope, Blaze Ya Dead Homie
Dark Lotus is a group that began its formation around 1999. Shortly after Twiztid signed with Psychopathic Records word started spreading about something called Dark Lotus. Everyone figured that with a name like "Dark Lotus" the group was bound to bring the wicked shit that Juggalos so desired. The line up was announcent after Twiztid released Mostasteless. The line up was Violent J, Shaggy 2 Dope, Monoxide Child, and Jamie Madrox. The two horrorcore groups that formed the backbone of Psychopathic Records performing as one big team, everyone was excited. The debut release was said to be called "Tales From The Lotus Pod" and would be released soon.
On "The Amazing Jeckel Brothers" LP, Dark Lotus released their first single ever, "Echoside". Singles were pressed for "Echoside" and distributed throughout Detroit. Dark Lotus then released a second single called "I Don't Care". Then ICP and Twiztid decided that Dark Lotus should have six members. Blaze Ya Dead Homie was announced as the fifth petal of the Lotus and he began to perform with original line up of Dark Lotus. However later the same year Blaze decided to leave Psychopathic Records and simply retire completely from the music world. Esham was said to be Blaze's replacement in Dark Lotus, but that simply did not work out though, but it was not a problem since Blaze later returned to Psychopathic records saying "I missed the family too much". So, Dark Lotus returned to being a five member group.
Juggalos became confused as to what was going on with the group, when on Twiztid's album "Freekshow" the track "Maniac Killa" was dubbed a Dark Lotus song yet it featured Vampiro, which led to speculation that he would join ICP, Twiztid, and Blaze as the sixth petal of the lotus pod.
ICP was on the Bizzar Bizaar Tour when they found the perfect sixth petal. He was a young rapper that had impressed Violent J with the performance he gave while opening for ICP on the Bizzar Bizaar Tour. The rapper's name was Marz and Violent J saw serious potential in him. He asked Marz about joining the Psychopathic supergroup and naturally Marz agreed. Marz was then promoted on Psychopathic's 2001 Sampler. The six members were finally announced and they hit the studio to record "Tales From The Lotus Pod" with tracks produced by Mike P, Mike E. Clark, and Twiztid. The album was released at the 2001 Gathering of the Juggalos and was an immediate hit with the juggalos. Dark Lotus also performed for the very first time at the event. However after the Gathering things began to fall apart.
It was announced shortly after the Gathering that Marz and Psychopathic Records had a falling out and he was no longer a member of Dark Lotus. ICP denied any beef with Marz and said they were just not working with him any longer. Marz evidently took offense and made a diss song entitled "The Real Dark Lotus" to which ICP did not reply. Dark Lotus as a five piece group headlined Psychopathic's "Hatchet Rizing Tour" and juggalos nationwide had the opportunity to see the magic of the Lotus. During the tour it was announced that the newly signed artist Anybody Killa would become the sixth petal of the lotus pod and that they would release "Tales From The Lotus Pod: Revisited" at the Gathering. The album simply featured the same tracks as the original version, except that ABK was rapping over all of Marz's lyrics. Also, it featured a response to Marz's attempt on cashing in on the Juggalo world without truly repping it, witht he song "Bitch I'm Sexy". At the end of the song, right where it reaches Marz's verse, Violent J comes on the track and says, "Hey yo Marz, you never was Lotus and you know this bitch!".
At the 2003 Gathering of the Juggalos Dark Lotus performed again and it was announced that a new Dark Lotus album would be released in 2004 before ICP's "Hell's Pit" album. Shortly after the release of the song "Graverobbers" rumors spread across the Internet that Twiztid had chose not to take part in the Dark Lotus album, and that they were to leave Psychopathic Records in order to form Majik Records. Amongst all the chaos and rumors Psychopathic revealed at midnight one night that the new Lotus album will in fact be released in April of 2004 featuring ICP, Anybody Killa, Jamie Madrox, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, and the Monoxide Child once again on one album and one tour.
The album was finally released under the title "Black Rain" and featured instant hits such as "The Walls" and many others. Juggalos were very pleased with the album since it did not disappoint. Dark Lotus performed live on stage nightly on a nationwide tour, but various illnesses in the group made it impossible to finish the scheduled dates. Lotus hit the stage once again at the 2004 Gathering of the Juggalos. It seemed like Dark Lotus was here to stay.
That quickly changed in 2006 when Anybody Killa decided to leave Psychopathic Records. Dark Lotus had once again lost its six petal. People began to start rumors that one of the reasons why ICP had signed Boondox to the label was so that he could become the sixth member of the group, but nothing official has been announced as of yet.
