MC Hammer is set to join the ranks of the Insane Clown Posse with a performance at their Gathering of the Juggalos this summer.

MC Hammer is either really, really smart or really, really stupid. The Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em rapper agreed to perform at the Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos.

Whaaa? Exactly. Hammer is on the bill to perform -- along with other "performers" Psycho Jesus and Lil Wyte at the August event in Illinois.

You might remember that little incident at last year's event when model (?) Tila Tequila was violently attacked by P.O.ed Juggalos.

"I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, DUDES were throwing HUGE STONE ROCKS in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the [expletive] out of the port-O-potty and threw [expletive] and piss at me when I was onstage," Tequila told TMZ afterward.

It was kind of serious -- she did have some nasty cuts and bruises from it. Rapper Method Man was also pelted with rocks and other assorted nastiness in the incident.

So, now Hammer's going to perform -- and we're not sure he'll fare much better. However, Vanilla Ice has performed there in the past, so maybe it won't be so bad.

Maybe he'll back out? Nah -- he likely really, really, really needs the money.

The bigger question: Who actually attends the Gathering of the Juggalos?
