Does anyone remember when MC Hammer signed with Death Row in 1995? It’s kind of like remembering Patrick Ewing playing for the Orlando Magic, because I had completely forgotten about “Hammer” signing on the dotted line with Suge Knight and Co. until this very news surfaced.
Upon doing so, he completely changed his style and more or less went gangster, most likely because Tupac was there destroying earth, something Hammer was apparently greatly influenced by. Who wouldn’t be? According to Upprox, ‘Pac had even written for Hammer on an unreleased track called “Too Tight,” for an album that never saw the light of day.
Anyway, the reason we’re here is to listen to the Oakland native basically mimic Tupac’s style on said song.
It’s a little eerie how much he sounds like the late legend. And you know what, it’s not that bad of a song, either.
Who knows why the album, or song, was never released, but I’ll take a wild guess and say it probably had to do with Suge Knight being pissed off about something. Oh, and money. You can’t say anything about Suge Knight without including the word money.
