Psychopathic Rydas is an American hip hop supergroup based in Detroit, Michigan. Formed in 1999, the group consists of Psychopathic Records-associated rappers performing under alternate stage names in the style of mainstream gangsta rap.[1] The group's current lineup consists of Insane Clown Posse's Violent J (Bullet)[1] and Shaggy 2 Dope (Full Clip),[1] Twiztid's Monoxide (Foe Foe)[1] and Jamie Madrox (Lil' Shank),[1] Blaze Ya Dead Homie (Cell Block)[2] and Boondox (Yung Dirt).[3]

Psychopathic Rydas reuses the beats of popular rappers within the genre without paying to license the original songs or requesting permission from copyright owners to use the music, effectively making their albums bootlegs[4] and resulting in the releases becoming difficult to find in some markets.[1] Psychopathic Rydas' debut album, Dumpin', was originally given away for correctly answering a series of trivia questions printed in the liner notes of Insane Clown Posse's album The Amazing Jeckel Brothers.[4]
