MC Hammer Tickets - You Can't Touch ThisThis is especially true for one Stanley Kirk Burrell born March 30, 1962, in Oakland, California. When you're able to merge mass pop music appeal to the rap genre, you've got something going. And Stanley, a.k.a. MC Hammerhad it going well, signing for his legendary rap music career with Capitol Records.
MC Hammer Tickets - Too Legit to QuitThere was no turning back after signing with his label -- he was on the road to fame. His first album Let's Get It Started was only a precursor to the phenomenon that was Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, hailing the explosive release of 'U Can't Touch This,' 'Here Comes the Hammer,' 'Have You Seen Her,' 'Dancing Machine,' and 'Pray.' Decades later, many music aficionados remember the style and image of MC Hammer and what he did for both Hip Hop and rap combined.
MC Hammer Tickets - Now Touch ItSo here's the gist of Hammer's hits. Given that he hails from a religious background, it's no wonder that his lyrical flow has an upbeat nature to it, not to mention his flamboyant parachute pants were an attention getter. He was clearly the antithesis of gangsta rap to the core, and to this day sticks to that style. Like a hammer, he's always remembered for his monumental hits.
