He’s best known for his 1990 hit single “U Can’t Touch This” as well as his trademark Hammer pants, but these days MC Hammer — now nearly 60 — is using his fame to spread the message of science. He’s cheerleading Black representation in STEM and shining a spotlight on Nobel laureates, and he’s happy to retweet any science story he finds interesting, whether it’s from popular media or PubMed.
Hammer was doing pretty good and I liked his direction. If he now sees Intelligent Design it means he is connecting the dots. He would then be a person who "has to know." The truth is, there are so many things we do not know. I'm not sure when we will know.
MC Hammer, a.k.a. Rev. Stanley Burrell, is promoting religion, who would have guessed. Not really guised with songs like "Pray" I would never have guessed. Listen to some of his songs and you will get the not so subtle religious undertones. Actually, don't bother, but do watch the cartoon with the magic shoes that turned him into MC Hammer. (Ah nostalgia, I'll never go back to you... well alright, just once for old time's sake.)
