The Internal Revenue Service wants to get to know Insane Clown Posse a little better. No, they aren't looking to score tickets to Gathering of the Juggalos 2015; they'd rather learn about Shaggy 2 Dope's income.

The Associated Press reports that the government asked a judge to enforce a summons against Shaggy 2 Dope (real name Joseph Utsler) for his income in 2011 and 2012. The word is that Shaggy failed to appear for two early 2015 meetings where he was supposed to present financial records.

It's not the first time ICP has been tangled in government affairs. In 2014, the hip hop duo and four of their dedicated Juggalos filed a lawsuit against the FBI for classifying the act's fanbase as a "loosely organized hybrid gang," claiming the move was "unwarranted and unlawful." The case was dismissed in July.
