How To Book MC HAMMER For Your Event!

  MC Hammer - booking information

  MC Hammer - booking information

M.C. Hammer, an immensely popular rap artist, synthesized the street sounds of black cultural alienation, or his interpretation thereof, to great commercial gain. After failing in professional baseball and attending a college course in communications, M.C. Hammer (named after his likeness to baseball's big hitter, Henry 'Hammerin' Hank' Aaron) joined the US Navy for three years. Indeed, his first forays into music were financed by baseball players Mike Davis and Dwayne Murphy, allowing him to form Bustin' Records and release the solo single, "Ring 'Em.'

  MC Hammer - booking information  He had previously been part of religious rap group the Holy Ghost Boys. Together with a backing band consisting of two DJs and singers Tabatha King, Djuana Johnican and Phyllis Charles, he cut a 1987 debut set, "Feel My Power." A minor hit, it did enough to bring MC Hammer to the attention of Capitol Records. After contracts were completed, including a reported advance of $750,000 (unheard of for a rap artist), the album was reissued under the title "Let's Get It Started." Such success was overshadowed, however, by that of the follow-up, 1990's "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em."

  MC Hammer - booking information  Following massive exposure due to sponsorship deals with British Knights footwear and Pepsi-Cola, the album began a residency at the top of the US charts for a record-breaking 21-week run. The US/UK Top 5 single, "U Can't Touch This," embodied his appeal, with near constant rotation on pop channel MTV, and dance routines that were the equal of Michael Jackson. The single sampled Rick James' "Super Freak," creating a precedent for follow-ups "Have You Seen Her" (the Chi-Lites) and "Pray" (Prince's "When Doves Cry"), the latter achieving his highest chart position when it reached US number 2.

Hammer was being praised as a suitable role model for black youth (not least by himself), and was honored by "M.C. Hammer Days" in Los Angeles and Fremont. "Here Comes The Hammer" became an unexpected failure by stalling at number 54 in the US charts, despite its appearance on the soundtrack to "Rocky V." A multitude of awards, including Grammys, Bammys and International Album of The Year at the Juno awards in Canada, reflected the global success of the album and the M.C. Hammer name – at this point in his career. His exposure to US audiences included the television adventures of cartoon hero "Hammerman," and a Mattel Hammer doll with attached ghetto blaster.

The follow-up, "Too Legit To Quit," was released under the name Hammer. The sleeve notes to the album expanded on his desire for black youth to rid themselves of drugs and resurrect their Christian morality through self-education. Despite a soundtrack hit with "Addams Groove," heavily promoted in The Addams Family movie, Hammer's fortunes declined.

In 1992, The San Francisco Examiner reported that Hammer faced financial ruin after poor attendances for his Too Legit To Quit tour, promoting an album that had seen him tracing a more R&B-based groove. Though MC Hammer denied there was any truth in such stories, it was obvious a re-think was needed.

By 1994, there was a huge image switch, from harem pants and leather catsuits to dark glasses and a goatee beard. The resultant album pulled in producers G-Bomb from Grand Jury Records, the Hines brothers from Detroit, Teddy Riley and members of the Dogg Pound, and specifically went after the Oakland G-funk sound of artists such as Too $hort. The "new" Hammer returned with "The Funky Headhunter" (a gangsta rap album) and a rebellious ghetto image. Though "The Funky Headhunter" briefly peaked at No. 2 and went gold, Hammer quickly abandoned his look and returned to pop-rap with 1995's "Inside Out."

 After declaring bankruptcy in 1997, Hammer publicly announced that he would take responsibility for his past actions and from now on would use his musical talents, such as they are, to praise God and emphasize traditional family values.

Hammer's "Family Affair" album was released in 1998. In November 2001 he released his new studio album, "Active Duty."

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE MC HAMMER?
(i.e., what is the fee of MC HAMMER for an event?)
(i.e., what is MC HAMMER charging to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for MC HAMMER, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular, or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
