Insane Clown Posse's Violent J is making a little noise on his own -- and for a good cause.
The Farmington-based rapper (real name Joe Bruce) has teamed with Solo Charity Tour partners Lil Easy-E, the son of the late N.W.A. co-founder Eazy-E, Young Wicked and Nova Rockafeller for a single called "Sick Kidz," which will be available exclusively on the tour. Proceeds from the $10 single go to the St. John's Children's Hospital of Illinois.
The Solo Charity Tour kicks off Monday, March 14, in Seattle and plays 10 West Coast dates before wrapping March 25 in Oakland, Calif.
It's not Violent J's only do-good recently. He's gotten behind a Tom's Last Wish GoFundMe campaign for Dearborn Heights resident Tom Callan, who's suffering terminal cancer. Violent J posted news about the campaign on ICP's official web site, encouraging the group's Juggalo fan base to contribute; the support has boosted the drive nearly 300 percent.

ICP, meanwhile, recently debuted a video for its song "Falling Apart," and the duo is gearing up for its Riddle Box Tour, which kicks off May 5 in Syracuse, as well as for its 17th Gathering of the Juggalos festival, which takes place July 20-23 in Thornville, Ohio.
