Insane Clown Posse rapper Violent J is undergoing psychiatric therapy and taking medication to help him deal with the ongoing pressures of fame.

The Juggalo Homies hitmaker admits it is difficult for him to disconnect from work when he is at home with his family, and he's seeking professional help in a bid to keep his two worlds separate.

He tells the New York Times, "I want to come home, be with my kids, just kick back and watch Tv and I can't do it unless I take some sort of sedative to slow me down."

He goes on to explain it is hard to stay relevant in the industry, while striking a balance with his personal life.

He continues, "If you're not banging the drums, making noise in this industry, nobody's looking at you. Nobody's listening."
