Default MC Hammer: Too Tight (Produced by Johnny J) [GhostWritten by 2Pac] finally surfaces

In an effort to resuscitate his career, Hammer signed with Death Row Records in 1995. Having a close friendship with 2Pac, Hammer planned to release an album, Too Tight, with the label, but after Pac's death in 1996 the project would never see the light of day and Hammer would leave Death Row shortly after.

Now, and some 20 years later, the title track for the shelved Death Row album has surfaced, written by 2Pac and produced entirely by Johnny J. His influence is very prevalent throughout the song, as MC Hammer's delivery and cadence are culled from Pac's unforgettable sound. It's very dated (this song is circa 1995-96, after all), and it's a high possibility that the song was unfinished. Still, it's a rather fascinating look into what could have been for Hammer.

MC Hammer was the best thing about Zoolander 2.

this was well known if you followed the Death Row camp at that time...there was also a callabo they did w/Big Daddy Kane featuring Danny Boy vocals...fans wanted this album & most of it eventually leaked similar to all those Makaveli bootlegs but not a mastered version that could go commercial

It's a shame this never came out, even if only for the historical context. I wonder how it woulda been received. I mean Hammer tried a few times to recover from his early 90s image & be taken seriously again but it never worked. Would being down with Pac & Death Row have put him back in music's good graces or was he doomed to be forever followed by his Saturday morning cartoon?

I gotta think this woulda flopped anyway. But who knows?

MC Hammer signing with Death Row was a mistake because he should've stayed with Capitol records where he was successful. I don't know why he tried to change and become hardcore when he did The Funky Headhunter album in 1994. He had videos for It's All Good and Pumps And A Bump from that album. He dissed Dres of Black Sheep and Redman on It's All Good. He said talking about my mama is when I draw the line Redman. So when the chrome is at your dome, I'm a blow your mind hahahahahahaha. Black Sheep dissed him on H.A.A. which stands for here's another asshole LOL. That song is on North South East West album single which is from Non Fiction album.





MC Hammer was doing just fine doing the positive rap songs like You Can't Touch This, Help The Children, Crime Stories, 2 Legit 2 Quit, Put Me In The Mix, Pray and Dancing Machine. I could care less about hard rappers dissing him because music like his needs to be played in black neighborhoods because his music is positive and he cares about helping poor blacks. Too bad poor blacks don't care about themselves LOL. How many rappers you know have hired a lot of poor blacks and brought them on concerts like MC Hammer did so they can have jobs? That's part of the reason he ended up bankrupt because he wasn't able to pay a lot of them and he had to fire them. A lot of them got mad at him for doing that LOL. I don't know why they got mad because if he don't have enough money to pay them, then he gotta fire them. I wouldn't be mad about that.




MC Hammer shouldn't care about his album sales not being good the last few albums because he had a good career. No music black artist has been successful forever and Michael Jackson is a example of that. His last album Invincible was terrible hahahahahahahahaha. I think it did go gold though. Michael's Dangerous album wasn't good too which had the hits In The Closet, Jam and Remember The Time. He died broke and he made a lot of money and sold a lot of albums. He spent his money foolishly and that's why he died broke. I love Michael though and he's my favorite singer.
