1000 Clowns was a rap group most notable for two songs: "(Not the) Greatest Rapper", which appeared on the Good Burger soundtrack, and "Kitty Kat Max".


The group's vocalists were sisters Anita and Michelle, and the band's leader, composer, lead singer and rapper was Kevi. DJ Mr. Pao was the turntablist, and he co-produced many of the songs.[1] The other two members were DJ Dax and drummer Scotty.[2]


The group released an album in 1999 titled Freelance Bubblehead, produced by Mickey Petralia. Neil Gladstone of CMJ New Music Monthly thought that the album was "easy on the ears" but formulaic.[3]
