Video: Farming rap sensation raises cash for NFYFC

A new-found rapping sensation has released a track inspired by life on the farm and tasty British pork – and listening to this banger will help fund our young farmers.

The farming-themed rap by Joe Harrison – otherwise known as Joe Burger – was the winning entry in a competition to find the UK’s very own Snoop Dogg.

Joe, a security engineer from Portsmouth, was crowned by a judging panel that included industry professionals, BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark and music producer Patrick Osei. The competition was run by pork pie maker Pork Farms.

The tongue-in-cheek rap, King of Pork Pie, can be listened to and downloaded on iTunes and Spotify with royalties from track downloads being donated to the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (NFYFC).

Thirty-year-old Joe, who also bagged himself a £1,000 cash prize, said: “I’m chuffed to bits and absolutely buzzing to have won. I’ve always loved rap music and recording this song means a lot to me because we’ve had good fun while giving something back to the community and celebrating the great work of British farmers.”
