General info

In August 2011, Insane Clown Posse was contacted by Jack White, who invited Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler to his mansion because he wanted to collaborate with them. White played the track he was working on, an arrangement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 's "Leck mich im Arsch" with live instrumentation by JEFF the Brotherhood , for Bruce and Utsler and explained that the title of the track translated to "Lick My Ass".

Bruce perceived that the scatological nature of the composition was the reason why White asked Bruce and Utsler to appear on the song, but once White explained Mozart's sense of humor, they became excited to work with White, went back to their hotel room to write their lyrics, and returned to record with White and JEFF the Brotherhood in White's home recording studio. Bruce and Utsler's vocals were recorded in one take.

The song was released as a single on September 13, 2011 by White's label Third Man Records. On Sept. 13, Third Man Records released "Leck Mich Im Arsch", a 7-inch single in which ICP raps over an obscure Mozart piece from 1782 titled "Leck Mich Im Arsch," which translates to "Lick me in the arse". The rap duo teamed with White, who produced the track, and Tennessee rock duo JEFF the Brotherhood , which adds some heavy guitar to Mozart's operatic arrangement.

There was also a special version of the record, pressed on yellow, black and white tri-color split.

One-hundred Tri-color versions of the single were available from the Third Man Rolling Record Store at the MI Fest in Brooklyn, Michigan on September 17th 2011 and another 50 Tri-colors will be randomly inserted into mail orders dispatched by Third Man Records.
