MC Hammer Drops a Dance Hammer at the Gathering of the Juggalos
The annual Gathering of the Juggalos took place this weekend (Aug. 13, 14); and in case you are not familiar with the Gathering or the Juggalos, it’s a weekend “bash” thrown by those rapping clowns known as Insane Clown Posse.
The duo’s fans, affectionately referred to as Juggalos, rock their faces off for two days, watching acts that fall into the rock and rap genres. They are treated to an ICP Summit, wrestling, and other fun and games. The pinnacle moment of the weekend was when ’80s and ’90s-era rapper MC Hammer took the stage.
While Hammer wasn’t wearing his signature balloon pants, he did reach into his past for something else. He whipped the crowd into a frenzy with the “Hammer Dance” during his rendition of ‘U Can’t Touch This,’ which was the rapper’s biggest hit. TMZ posted a video of the onstage dance-a-thon and it will make you bummed that you missed the festivities.
Hammer’s hit album was called ‘Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em’ and Hammer effectively laid a hurtin’ on the legions of Juggalos — in the best possible way. Juggalos are known for being a discerning, hard-to-please bunch — what can we say, they have standards — but they opened their tattooed arms to an icon of the ’80s. Hammer won ‘em over with his skillz.
