Tom Green records rap album

TORONTO, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Canadian shock comic Tom Green has launched his new rap album, "Prepare For Impact" with a concert at a Toronto Hooters.

"I started to love Hooters after me and some friends went on a cross-America skateboard tour that we unofficially turned into a Hooters tour," Green told the Toronto Sun before Wednesday night's event. "We have a song called 'I Like Hooters' on the record and it just seemed like kind of a funny place to launch our record."

Green, 34, was part of the hip-hop group Organized Rhyme, which was nominated for a Canadian Juno Award in the early 1990s, the newspaper noted.

The new album -- with a lurid song list that defies printing -- attacks teachers, Hollywood, parents, cancer, his former wife Drew Barrymore and the media, which he claims has made him a target over the years.

"It's not a comedy record, but it is a very funny record," he said. "I don't think you can keep doing something for 15 years for a complete joke."
