‘Worst Rappers’ list includes Ottawa’s Tom Green
TORONTO — A list of the world’s worst rappers includes one Canadian.
Ottawa’s Tom Green ranks 25th on the GQ list of the “25 Worst Rappers of All Time” posted on Tuesday.
“Confession: We’ve never heard 2005’s released-only-in-Canada CD Prepare For Impact,” the magazine wrote.
Green, 41, performed as MC Bones in the group Organized Rhyme in the early ’90s and earned a Juno Award nomination for Best Rap Recording.
Organized Rhyme reunited for the 2011 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and recorded a new version of their hit “Check the O.R.”
In 2005, Green released the solo rap recording Prepare for Impact and followed it with Basement Jams in 2008.
Green is better known as an actor and comedian.
He is in good company on the list, which GQ calls “the definitive list of the 25 most dreadful MCs ever to dribble out a rhyme.”
Reality show star Spencer Pratt ranks No. 2, followed by Vanilla Ice (No. 4), Kevin Federline (No. 5), MC Hammer (No. 7) and Pitbull (No. 9).
Also making the cut are “the two guys in the Black Eyed Peas who aren’t will.i.am.”
