Anybody Killa (born June 26, 1974 as James Lowery) is a Psychopathic Records artist. Lowery is of Native American descent, and his family belongs to the Lumbee tribe. Despite a pronounced lisp, Lowery is able to deliver his violent, quasi-political lyrics fairly well. In fact, many fans have cited the impedement as part of ABK's appeal.
Anybody Killa (ABK) started his rap career in 1995 as part of the group Krazy Klan. He rapped under the name Jaymo while his partner (LAVEL) rapped as Jayho. Later he became the hype man for Blaze Ya Dead Homie before going out on his own.
Big Hoodoo is another stage name for Detroit rapper Doe Dubbla, also known as the Jinx. When Psychopathic Records, the Farmington Hills, Michigan independent record label founded by Alex Abiss and Insane Clown Posse, parted ways with Twiztid, one of the label's most popular acts, the pressure was on to find a replacement act. That turned out to be Doe Dubbla in his Big Hoodoo incarnation, a cartoonish mix of Screamin' Jay Hawkins and one of those over-the-top masked characters from a bad Mexican wrestling movie. ICP had a heavy hand in the production of Big Hoodoo's debut album, Crystal Skull, a label-typical blend of horrorcore rap, filled with Dubbla's theatrical hexes and spells, and maybe most notable for not using the word "juggalo" anywhere, in the summer of 2013. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
