MC Hammer – Too Legit to Quit was the follow-up album to Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ’Em that Capitol Records and everyone else expected to be more successful than Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ’Em only to become a sophomore jinx selling only 3 million units. The single 2 Legit 2 Quit was the only reason why this album went 2x times platinum in the United States. 2 Legit 2 Quit and Addams Groove were some of the moderately successful singles off the album that managed to keep his name alive in the music industry and movie industry. This album incorporated pop and new jack swing over catchy lyricism.
MC Hammer explains why he is too legit to quit on the hyper uptempo dance rap song 2 Legit 2 Quit. MC Hammer went than he ever did before over 90s style dance beats and dance pattern. He is kickin’ it at the top ’cause he is too legit to quit. 2 Legit 2 Quit was the follow-up to U Can’t Touch This along with Gaining Momentum.
Gaining Momentum is a hip hop and dance combination where the sounds of hip hop/rap meet dance music. MC Hammer explains how the music has got him moving as he wants to party. With little bit of time he’ll turn it out. The message of this song was to dance and express yourself. MC Hammer was gaining momentum and getting hype with this song despite it not actually being a since. In a way, Gaining Momentum was the follow-up to U Can’t Touch This.
Addams Groove was another moderately successful song on this album that spawned off into a single. This showed the more horrorcore side of MC Hammer.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
