Before he was spray painting lesbians on his parents car or singing the Bum Bum song, Tom Green was apart of a once successful Canadian hip hop group called Organized Rhyme. Their formula was to have catchy beats, simplistic choruses and clever rhymes. With this formula they created a hit record (by Canadian standards) entitled “Check the O.R.”
The single won the MuchVibe Best Rap Video at the MMVA’s in 1992 and was nominated for a Juno Award in 1993. They lost however to “Keep it Slammin’” by Devon. The group disbanded shortly after. Their record label A&M Records wanted a less comedic product which caused turmoil amongst the members.
MC Bones (Tom Green) went on to have the most successful career…DUH!, as he was one of the most popular comedians and recognizable TV stars of the 1990s. DJ Signal (Geordie Ferguson) is apparently a computer scientist. Pin the Chameleon (Greg Campbell) is a music producer/artist known as Mr. Bigstuff… I know, I haven’t heard of him either, but he did reconnect with Tom this year on this little blast from our past.
