  • In this song Ross pays tribute to rapper MC Hammer, who placed 10 entries on the Hot 100 between 1989 and 1994, including his signature hit, "U Can't Touch This."
  • How does Hammer feel about the tribute? "Arguably, right now, (Ross is) the hottest dude in the game. He's spitting fire," said the MC in Billboard magazine. "For a cat on that level, with his skill set, to have a record called 'MC Hammer,' because it pays a lot of respect and homage to what I laid down, you can't help but be honored by that.
    I done got every award that a man can get in the music business, every one. I got 'em all. Diamond awards, Grammys, American Music Awards, People's Choice Awards, you name it. Everything that you can do and every accolade you can receive. But that record that Ross did is on the level of all that. That's how it feels to me."
