We all miss the good old days when hip-hop was played through a boom box, and the king of New York was undisputedly Biggie. At that time the king of the streets in Ottawa was none other than Organized Rhyme, the acclaimed rap duo comprised of Pin the Chameleon (Greg Campbell) and MC Bones (comedian Tom Green).
Organized Rhyme re-united this past summer Montreal’s very own Just for Laughs festival. They hit the streets with Boo Ya Pictures to film a new video for their 2011 Remix of their award winning hit “Check the O.R.”.
MC Bones and Pin turn the city upside down, providing light-hearted entertainment (or disturbing the peace, your call) for folks trying to enjoy their lunch break on a beautiful Montreal summer day. The video also calls back some classic moments from the original video that took Canada by storm in 1992, winning the Much Vibe Video of the Year. The song was also nominated for a Juno (that’s Canadian for “Grammy”) for best rap recording.
When M.C Bones (Green) is not blurting rhymes into a mic, he can be found getting back to his roots in comedy. Tom is currently touring the United States before heading off to Australia in March. His stand-up show hosts a variety of talented acts, including his rapping and a lot of audience interaction. This Canadian prankster is once again bringing the laughs to audiences across the globe, following a successful five-year run with his online show; “Tom Green’s House Tonight.”
