You're probably aware of the bizarre collaboration between Insane Clown Posse and Jack White, a sublimely weird track that finds the Detroit rappers covering a dirty ditty Mozart wrote (yes, that Mozart) called "Leck Mich Im Arsch," which is exactly as explicit as it sounds.
When we chatted with Insane Clown Posse about the FBI targeting them and why they despise Chris Brown, we also learned they aren't too crazy about the two tunes they made with the former White Stripe.
"I'm not saying I love the songs. It was nothing we would ever release," Violent J tells Fuse. Shaggy 2 Dope is a little blunter when assessing "Mountain Girl," the country-tinged b-side to "Leck Mich Im Arsch." "All of a sudden he starts playing this country sh-t and we were like, 'What are we gonna do with country sh-t?'"
But ICP understand why he approached them in the first place. "He knew what he was doing in asking us to do that song," Violent J says. "He knew people would be like, 'What the f—k?' and it would create hella talk. That's why he did it. There wasn't a whole lotta talk [between us], it was about business. "
And when the Detroit natives did converse, it doesn't sound particularly warm: "We did ask him to be on our sh-t and he was like, 'no,'" J says, putting on a deadpan Jack White expression.
Regardless, ICP say the experience made them realize some strange similarities between White and themselves. "He's just like us, man. When it came time to take that picture, we put our makeup on and he put his black hat and black outfit on. Only he's critically acclaimed and we're not," Violent J opines. "[He lives in] a big-ass white mansion with a red roof. In his studio he had a red-and-white Coke machine. We have clown sh-t in our studio, he has red and white."
