MC Hammer

Rapper Known for his signature Hammer pants, quick-footed dance moves and infectious hits like "Too Legit to Quit" and "U Can't Touch This," MC Hammer is one of the most influential and iconic hip hop artists the industry has ever seen. Born Stanley Kirk Burrell, the Oakland MC was the first rapper to reach diamond status on a single album, ultimately selling more than 50 million records worldwide. He made national headlines with his famous bankruptcy filing in 1996, but managed to keep his name alive despite his financial troubles. From movies and touring to hosting shows and reality TV (he's been featured on Surreal Life, I Married... and Hammertime), the music star is still in the public eye. In 2008, BET ranked MC Hammer number seven on their Top 25 Dancers of All Time.
