  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The video discusses the experiences of Violent J, a member of the rap group Insane Clown Posse, during their time at Def Jam Records. The video begins with a rap trivia question about four record labels: Luke Records, Rap A Lot Records, Def Jam Records, and Death Row Records. Violent J reveals that Insane Clown Posse was signed to Def Jam Records and reflects on how ridiculous that sounds now. He recalls an encounter with Leor Cohen, a former executive at Def Jam, where Cohen screamed in his face. Violent J explains that they were supposed to do branch visits while on tour, but they decided to skip them due to exhaustion. When they arrived in New York, Cohen confronted them and asserted his street credibility before offering to get them any collaborator they wanted for their record. Violent J's perception of Cohen shifted from wanting to fight him to being interested in working with him. The video also touches upon their previous label, Island Records, and how they ended up at Def Jam after Island merged and eventually dissolved. Violent J recalls walking through the Def Jam office and receiving strange reactions from people, who mistook their unique appearance for a Halloween costume.
