Maybe they did it because without Psychopathic, Strange would be having a much more difficult time.
NOT because Tech needs ICP or Juggalos or whatever. But Psychopathic proved a point that most couldn't or didn't event attempt to prove. They showed people that not only can you be comfortable without MTV, but you can have multiple platinum and gold albums without MTV. Granted, Tech is a much better rapper and his skill would have brought him somewhere, but ICP did it without the greatest lyrical ability, which is harder to do. You can be talentless if MTV backs you, but if they don't, you better be able to balance a dishwasher on your chin while rapping in the middle of a backflip.
But honestly...whether or not you like the music Psychopathic puts out, you have to admire their business ethics. Even if they're cheesey, stupid, immature, cheap, or whatever you can think of. ICP are fucking millionaires. With A LOT less radio play than Tech, only because they make music that really can't even be censored enough to be on the radio.
They have their own wrestling company, which at one point was #3 in America, behind ECW and ahead of WCW. Not the greatest feat, but still makin' money and beating out WCW, which at one point was on top of the world.
Gold and platinum CD's and DVD's. Clothing lines. Action figures. Lunchboxes. Energy drinks. Their own brand of face paint. Their own festival every summer. Countless shit. Some of it is stupid, but they make dough. Music aside, ICP and everybody at Psychopathic Records aren't just lucky, they know how to hustle and how to make money. I love Strange to death but ICP had a number one record this year, and they are two middle-aged white guys who paint their faces like clowns. Really?
Honestly, I fucking hate Kiss, but I respect the hell out of them because they are one of the richest, most famous rock bands in the world. ICP is the underground, much less adored (though at one point only kids liked Kiss), infamous version of Kiss.
