Background[edit]

On April 20, 2012, Psychopathic Records released an infomercial for the album The Mighty Death Pop!, announcing that it will be available in three separate editions, each with a variant color cover and prepackaged with a bonus album.[5] The first variant edition, dubbed the Red Pop edition, contains an album of cover songs entitled Smothered, Covered & Chunked, which features appearances by Psychopathic artists Twiztid, Anybody Killa, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Jumpsteady, Cold 187um and DJ Clay, as well as Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, the band Downtown Brown,[6] and the rapper Lil Wyte.[5] The title was originally announced as Covered, Smothered & Chunked, but later corrected to Smothered, Covered & Chunked.

On July 19, 2012, 30 second snippets of The Mighty Death Pop!, Smothered, Covered & Chunked, and the other two bonus albums pre-packaged with The Mighty Death Pop! were released on Amazon. A day later, the snippets were removed from the website per Psychopathic Records' request. On August 8, the album along with The Mighty Death Pop! and its other bonus albums were all released early in the 13th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos. The art for Smothered, Covered & Chunked was designed by a local Detroit artist and designer Patrick Hatfield and features traditional and digital illustration and design.

On January 9, 2013, it was announced that a music video for the cover for "Jump Around" was in production. The music video for the song was released on February 1, 2013 via Psychopathic Records' YouTube channel.

On March 8, 2017 the second single and music video was released for the song "Beautiful".

Production[edit]

Insane Clown Posse contacted Fred Durst, as they sought to record a collaboration that no one would expect. Violent J said that Durst didn't want to be paid for his contribution to the album, as he "was just happy and surprised that we wanted him on it."[7] Boondox was originally announced as having an appearance on "Mind Playin' Tricks On Me" during the Mighty Death Pop! infomercial,[5] while the final released version featured Anybody Killa instead.
