It was the bomb! MC Hammer still has it going on!!! "We Can't Touch This" still... I should know...we were so honored to join him and his dance crew on stage (I think half the audience participated on this), me included, for about 20 minutes. I mean the energy level that was put out was unbelievable. They put on on a non-stop hour and 15 minute show that was pumping after each and every song. I was not disappointed...it was truly a night to remember for us at 58 years "young" and my husband of "67 years young". We're still talking about it to all our friends.
MC Hammer released his debut album “Feel My Power,” in 1987, selling what turned out to be more than 60,000 copies out of the back of his trunk after the album’s single “Let’s Get It Started” became a popular hit within the local nightclubs. MC Hammer received several offers from major record labels and eventually accepted a deal with Capitol Records who re-released the album as “Let’s Get It Started.”
The album’s singles “Feel My Power,” “Let’s Get It Started,” “Turn This Mutha Out” and “Pump It Up” added to the roster of new wave hip-hop videos that premiered on MTV in the late 1980s and saw heavy rotation on R&B/Hip-Hop radio stations before going triple-platinum, selling more than three million copies. MC Hammer also became well-known for his unique dance style that helped pave the way for the Bay Area movement called “Hyphy” today and helped to bring hip-hop and rap to the Bay Area.
MC Hammer’s second album, “Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ’Em” included the smash singles “U Can’t Touch This,” “Have You Seen Her?” and “Pray,” and went on to become the first hip-hop album to reach diamond status, selling more than 10 million units.
MC Hammer’s career continued to be very successful in the 1990s with album releases including “Too Legit to Quit,” in 1991, “The Funky Headhunter” in 1994, “Inside Out” in 1995, and “Family Affair” in 1998. MC Hammer’s pop-culture success led to licensed merchandise including dolls, lunchboxes, a Saturday morning Cartoon “Hammerman” and the iconic “Hammer pants.” In 2001, MC Hammer released “Active Duty” in tribute to those lost in the September 11th terrorist attacks, followed by a digital release “Look Look Look” in 2006. In 2003, MC Hammer appeared on the first season of “The Surreal Life,” a reality show known for assembling an eclectic mix of celebrities to live together on VH1.
