Mass MC – ‘BBQ Song feat MC Thorn’
(produced by Suffa, Flak & DEBRIS)
A bunch of people I know had to change their 5110 ring tones because of this joint. Mass has always been that dude from Sydney to kick a ruthless rhyme and then bust into a well tuned Biz Markie style chorus but this tune (and jazzy freestyle) have to be the best cases of it. Thorn provides dope contrast to Mass’s erratic story of fuckery and the beat is just 100% – Funkoars
Mass MC and MC Thorn’s 2000 track ‘The BBQ song’ became something of an Australian hip hop anthem, which virtually spawned a
subgenre known as “barbecue rap”. But as noted by Pollard (2003) Australian hip hop has, for the most part, remained “independent, marginalised and largely ignored by the masses” – Tony Mitchell
