MC Hammer, "U Can't Touch This"

MC Hammer, hip-hop's first Large Ham, born Stanley Kirk Burrell (1962-). He is mostly famous for his dance hit "U Can't Touch This"[1] and for bringing Rap into the mainstream. In fact, along with Vanilla Ice, he practically was mainstream rap from about 1988 to 1992, when people started taking notice of Gangsta Rap and decided anyone who had an act like Hammer's was a sell-out. His popularity plummeted almost immediately. Nowadays, he's a Pentecostal minister, and he had a short-lived TV show, Hammertime, on A&E in 2009.

MC Hammer provides examples of the following tropes:

"You got the M.C Hammer!
BAM BAM pound the likes of stakes!
BAM BAM pound, pound other things too!"
