30 Day Song Challenge, Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title

It’s certainly not the best Hammer track, but I love this video. In fact, I love how the whole video is James Brown and MC Hammer throwing shade (and maybe a few fireballs) at Michael Jackson.

MC Hammer (or just “Hammer”, by this point) was a staple of my childhood. Of course, the same could probably be said of everyone in the “Xennial” micro-generation. I distinctly remember speeding around the outer ring at Sparkles roller rink jamming to this track and throwing up the little hand signals. I can probably still handle those moves, too!

This is, hands-down, one of the best music videos ever made.
