City Slang: ICP prepares the Mighty Death Pop
As the Insane Clown Posse prepares for its hometown show at the Emerald Theater on June 23, the group has announced details of its next album, to be called The Mighty Death Pop. Seriously.
ICP has recorded an infomercial, which can be viewed here, and the album is due to drop August 14, just after the annual Gathering of the Juggalos on August 8-12.
“In the latest of their one-of-a-kind clips, which have previously been the subject of multiple popular Saturday Night Live parodies, the wicked clowns Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope shout out to their fans with details of The Mighty Death Pop, which will burst onto the scene on August 14th. Juggalos worldwide have something to really get excited about as The Mighty Death Pop will be available in three different versions – Red Pop, Black Pop and White Pop. Each version will feature the new 17-track album in its entirety, plus a full-length disc of bonus material—making it the most extensive release by the group to date.
“Additionally, each bonus collection is an album of its own. Covered, Smothered & Chunked (aka Red Pop) features brand new covers from ICP featuring guest appearances from every artist in the Psychopathic Records family, along with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst and Lil Wyte. Tracks include “Jump Around” by House of Pain, “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera, “Shout” by Tears For Fears, Public Enemy’s “Night of the Living Bassheads,” “State of Shock” by Michael Jackson & Mick Jagger, and more. Freaky Tales (aka Black Pop) is ICP’s single, album-length version of Too Short’s rap classic “Freaky Tales.” Though the original was eight minutes long, ICP have expanded it into 64 non-stop minutes of dirty rhymes. Finally, Mike E. Clark’s Extra Pop Emporium (aka White Pop) contains outtakes, remixes and collaborations featuring Kottonmouth Kings, Twiztid, Color Me Badd, Geto Boys, Scarface, Willie D, Three 6 Mafia, Swollen Members, and more. The main album and three collectible bonus albums will be sold separately.”
