The last time we wrote about Albini is when he was expressing some praise for a member of Insane Clown Posse (and talking shit about a certain Spotify podcaster). In a tweet of his he wrote this past February, the engineer/producer said (referring to the Insane Clown Posse member and alluding to Joe Rogan):
“This is absolutely model owning-your-shit behavior, and if a goddamn fucking Juggalo can manage it, a nine-figure podcaster can step the fuck up without whining.”
