Island Records has reportedly paid $1 million to Disney's Hollywood record label to acquire the rights to release the recently recalled album by horror-rap duo Insane Clown Posse.

Hollywood originally shipped 100,000 copies of ICP's ``The Great Milenko'' album June 24, but abruptly pulled it from stores the same day, claiming the lyrics were ``inappropriate'' after Southern Baptists threatened to boycott the entertainment company.
