(Interviewer)
Describe a typical day for Twiztid before a show?.
(Monoxide Child)
Umm, well, it's different in two different ways because we spend our days differently. You know, the larger one being sleeping until doors, and being a kaldascope of different things. I'm usualy up just walking around, I fuck with the Juggalos, you know what I'm saying?. I go down to the venue and fuck around with them, smoke some weed with them. You know what I'm saying? Hang out, read through the book of spells. Stuff like that. But, it's like, it's different. We don't like the day. You know what I'm saying? If everything was night that would be awesome, because that's when we get to get our gig on.
(Interviewer)
Aight, ummmm, well okay, when you guys are doing a tour, you may pass over some cities and some people think oh "Twiztid doesn't like us" You know? "ICP doesn't like us" but obviously usually that's not the case. What does it take to put a tour together? You know, like why do you pass over some cities sometimes or hit a city sometimes?.
(Monoxide Child)
Well what it is, it's like, I'd say 85 percent of the cities in the United States Of America already don't want us to play there, you know? It has nothing to do with us, you know what I'm saying? We know there's Juggalos everywhere, and if we could go everywhere we would. But I mean, for example, Milwaukee was a place that, I mean, they're, they're, they didn't want us there. Their city officials were like "Hell no." Their governor was like "Fuck you." Their mayor, everything, you know what I'm saying?. So it comes down to shit like that, it comes down to politics, you know what I'm saying? It has nothing to do with us, we don't make that. I mean, there are places where we're like, "We got to go here," "We got to go there," but there's never been a time where we're like "We are never going there again." You know what I'm saying? Never like that. It's all up to the city. and it's getting harder and harder dude, they're doing shit like they won't let Juggalos show up until, you know, 20 minutes before doors, shit like that, you know?. It's fucking insane.
(Interviewer)
Now, is it harder for you guys because of ICP? Like, I know that alot of places won't let ICP because of the Faygo and they've heard the whole stories. Does that make it harder for you guys to book shows because you're with them?.
(Monoxide Child)
Oh yeah. you know what I'm saying? We're thrown right into the same boat. Everybody that hates ICP, well at least they have a reason to hate them, you know what I'm saying?. They'll give you a reason, but if you ask why they hate us, they hate us because we're with ICP, you know what I'm saying?. That's everybody. That's kids, parents, you know what I'm saying? Radio stations, video stations, record labels, promoters, booking agents. If they don't like them, 9 times out of 10 they don't like us. So, you know, what are you gonna fucking do? Go around them.
(Interviewer)
Alright uhhh let's see. Ok, you guys release Mirror/Mirror as an EP, ummm, it had 10 songs on it though which is usually a little bigger. Why did you guys release it as an EP as opposed to waiting and maybe putting like four or five more tracks on and making it full length?.
(Monoxide Child)
Well, actually we were doing something else. We were doing this Black Majik project, and that just kinda fell through, cause it wasn't like, what we wanted. It was close, but it wasn't what we wanted. It was no different than a Twiztid song to me, you know what I'm saying? It's like the song "Alone" was a Black Majik track, but I could picture that track on Freekshow, you know what I'm saying?. So it was like, we were like, "Well fuck dude, this shit's dope, we need to come out with an album." But we didn't want to come out with a full length, you know what I'm saying?. We didn't want everybody to take this album as, you know, this is, this is the big one, so to speak, you know? There's no major label behind it, minimal distribution, you know? Something strictly for the Juggalos. We figured we'd say it was an EP just to flip everybody's wig when they see, you know? "Oh shit, there's 10 songs on here." You know what I'm saying? So that's dope, that's why we didn't put the track listing anywhere until you bought the CD and you opened it, and you saw, "Damn, there's a lot more than 5 songs on it.".
(Interviewer)
Uhhh let's see, aight here's a question. On "Through Your Eyez" on the Mirror/Mirror cd, you said, or I don't know if it was you or Madrox right now, but ummm you said, "I’m not a puppet, so don’t pull my strings. I don’t need nobody trying to hold me, console me, control me, shit. You’re the one trying to change me, make me into something that I’m not." And alot of people on the internet, I know there's a lot of speculation and bullshit on the internet, but people.....
(Monoxide Child)
That we dissed ICP?.
(Interviewer)
Yeah, yeah can you comment on that?.
(Monoxide Child)
It's nothing like that, you know what I'm saying. It's about the mainstream. It's about the Mainstream America and what happens when something like us is filtered into that, you know what I'm saying?. It's like, we were on Island-Def Jam, and they sent us, fucking, first thing they did was send us back a track listing with every word to every song, every song on the album, and fucking lines crossed out of it, you know what I'm saying? They want us on their record label, they want us to make them money, but they don't want us to do it our way. They want to change us. So we're like "Fuuuuuck you." And we left that record label, you know what I'm saying? No, hell no. Anybody that would think we're dissing ICP is a fucking Juggahoe, and you got that.
(Interviewer)
Aight, haha, uhhh, it's just that, people like, you know, you guys didn't used to do make-up, and know you guys do it, people thought that you used to be more hip hop/rappier, and then Freekshow you got more rockier, kinda like ICP was doing. So that's why, that's what led people to believe that maybe this was some sort of diss, but you know, but obviously.... .
(Monoxide Child)
If you fucking, if you think about it though, ICP is not the only one who did that shit. Papa Roach did it, Limp Bizkit did it, Kid Rock did it, you know what I'm saying?. Everybody did it. All these motherfucking rap, rock bands are trying to be rap, and they sound like shit, you know what I'm saying?. They can't hold a candle to it. So, it was kind of like a pun almost, like a, like a poke, a dig, you know what I'm saying? All these motherfuckers are doing that, so we're like "We'll show you how easy it is." And uhh, you know what I'm saying? We like it, it's cool, but that aint us. All these motherfuckers are doing it, but we only get compared to ICP. Which is cool, which is fine. We don't trip. But for people to think that we're dissing them, dude that's fucking insane. I can't beleive that shit. But I uhhh, I guess, you know what I'm saying?. It sounds like the Juggalos want us to diss them sometimes. Fuckers are looking for some drama. That's why I stay off the internet. For real dude, Monoxide has nothing to do with the internet.
(Interviewer)
Aight ummm, let's see. Can you give any, can you give the Juggalos any insight as to what the "Green Book" is?.
(Monoxide Child)
You'll see. You'll see. You'll see. You'll see......
