Biography[Edit]Edit

MC Hammer grew up in a poorer neighborhood as a child in a religious family that but with effort could earn enough money to buy food. MC Hammer managed to dancer in theOakland Athletics baseball team and encouraged by the enthusiastic response made MC Hammer switched to show business.

In 1987 , his first rapalbum that at a small local record label was released. This album sold MC Hammer personally from his own car and in small record stores in downtown Oakland. In total, there are some tens of thousands of copies sold and this relative success gave MC Hammer a large contract with record company Capitol.

His real debut album came out in early 1989Let's Get It Started sold well, but the real breakthrough came at the end of the year 1989 with the album Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'em. On this album were the big hitsyou can't touch this (containing a sample of Rick JamesSuper freakHave You Seen Her and PrayYou can't touch this is still the best selling world-wide rapsingle.

Although the musical qualities of MC Hammer often in doubt were pulled, worldwide there were millions of copies of Please Hammer, Don't Hurt ' Em sold. The video clips were much on music stations turned, not least because of MC Hammers excellent dance qualities.

The next album by Hammer (he had omitted the prefix MC now) did not bring the next success that many had counted. Hammer changed his image and acted in a strip, did promote boxing matches and led the life of a superstar. Hammer In 1994 made a trip to the gangsta rap, but the criticisms were so destructive that Hammer to return soon returned to his old genre, a combination of rap and pop. He received great success no longer. In 1996 he signed a recording contract with Death Row Records, then home to 2PacSnoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. After the death of 2Pac on 13 september 1996, he left the label without even 1 song to have released.
