and don't let anybody tell you different

This is a blog - uh - u can't touch

Stop - Hammertime.

Rashunda points us to the ultimate blast from the past: MC Hammer has a blog.

Talk about my childhood coming back to haunt me. Believe it or not, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em was the first album I ever owned (on cassette, of course). I still remember walking down the streets of Albany, CA with my buddy Steven and rapping to "U Can't Touch This". And here I am, 16 years later, linking to MC Hammer's blog.

(And in between? Not much. A couple of years back, I heard the Hammer had filed for bankruptcy. And then there was that moment when 12-year old me listened to "When Doves Cry" for the first time, and, after a moment or two, realized it was MC Hammer who ripped Prince off - not the other way around.)

Read all about Stanley Kirk Burrell and his parachute pants here.

By the way: Hammer thinks Barry Bonds is too legit to quit. (Couldn't resist that one.)
