Jack White / Insane Clown Posse B-Side ‘Mountain Girl’ Surfaces Online
When it comes to collaborations between ex-White Stripes frontman Jack White and rap rockers Insane Clown Posse, one song simply isn’t enough. Lucky for fans of the unique partnership, the B-side to the A-side ‘Leck Mich Im Arsch’ that dropped earlier this month has surfaced online.
White and ICP hooked up to record ‘Leck Mich Im Arsch’ — literally translated to English as ‘Lick Me in the Arse’ — and released the joint on White’s own Third Man Records. That song is streaming on Loudwire here. Now comes ‘Mountain Girl,’ the flip side of that seven-inch vinyl release, and the tune has surfaced online as well. You can listen to it via YouTube at the bottom of the page.
The Third Man Records website says ‘Mountain Girl’ “finds [ICP rappers] Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope telling tall tales about a shotgun wedding, meth problems and moonshine. All pretty common-fare for a twangy country song birthed in Nashville.”
As for what ever started the unusual White / ICP pairing in the first place, rapper J insists ICP received a phone call from White — and that he was just as surprised as the rest of the world when he first considered the possibility. “I told [White], ‘I gotta know — why us?’” J tells Billboard.com. “He said, ‘I find myself going to your web site and looking at it. Some stuff I think is genius, some stuff I don’t understand at all, but I always find myself going back there and seeing what you’re up to.’”
J continues: “He said people were like, ‘What? You’re kidding me.’ That’s what got him excited. His exact quote was, ‘We could’ve done a song with Megadeth and it wouldn’t be as talked-about as us working with you guys.’”
