You read correctly, Jack White has teamed up with clownfaced rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, "professionally" known as Insane Clown Posse (proprietors of the strange and mostly rural group of odd fans know as Juggalos). White, a prolific businessman and all-around collaborator, has done some strange projects in his day with his Third Man Records outfit, mostly with comedians like Conan and Stephen Colbert, but this takes the strange cake to "huh?" town.
Although this seems like the setup for a "Weekend Update" joke, it's very real, and we don't need a team of writers to make it more silly. ICP uses a melody by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart dating back to 1782 as the base for their song "Leck Mich Im Arsch", which supposedly translates into "lick me in the arse". It will be released on Third Man on 9/13 via 7" and digitally with the b-side "Mountain Girl", a song which is said to contain "tall tales about a shotgun wedding, meth problems and moonshine". The track was produced by White and instrumentals were provided by JEFF the Brotherhood (the only non-hilarious part of this news).
Enough chatter, listen for yourself.
Definitely should have went with a beef-oven tune instead.
"Mozart/dope for the most part/respected/'cause he knows art" - my tombstone.
