Ok, I can't front...when I logged into my email account and saw the press release for this project, my initial reaction was "Seriously?!?" It was a feeling of both confusion and surprise...LOL

This isn't because I'm not a fan of MC Hammer (please believe I had the Hammer doll, assorted pairs of Hammer Pants and even won several dance contests, as a child, with the song "HammerTime" blaring in the background); I was just a little thrown off by the combination of Mick Boogie and MC Hammer. I've been lucky enough to host a party with Mick, here in Boston, so I've seen him do his thing live and I'm a huge fan of his mixtape projects. He's always doing something fresh and I'm sure this cd will be one that everyone will enjoy once it drops.

Check the press release below and look out for HammerTime, available for free download on June 2, 2009.

Shout out to Dan Solomito for the info!

Mick Boogie Teams up with 90's Icon MC Hammer for Latest Mixtape Project

New York, NY - Mick Boogie and are proud to announce details on their newest project, Hammertime, hosted by MC Hammer. The mixtape contains Hammer's classics as well as the samples from which they came, and some present day remixes.

On Hammertime, Mick Boogie takes you on a ride through the past, present, and future, using the original samples to intro some of Hammers biggest hits, as well as a few new remixes of Hammer's most memorable records. Songs like Rick James "Superfreak" and The Chi-lites "Have You Seen Her" will remind listeners where some of Hammer's biggest hits came from.

The project also features some of the brightest up and coming rappers like Mistah FAB, Chip Tha Ripper, and Izza Kizza, as well as Hammer himself re-spitting a couple classic verses. Production on the remixes comes by way of Mick Boogie, Good Life Mike, nVme and more.

Interludes throughout the tape include Hammer himself talking about life, the music business, and the impact he had on the world. The clips are taken from a recent interview Mick Boogie and Terry Urban did on their Shade 45, Press Play radio show earlier this month with Hammer, which spawned the idea to create this unique project.

Hammertime will be free for download exclusively at on June 2, and across the internet June 3.

For more information, details on the project or press inquiries, please contact Dan Solomito -

**The Press Play Show airs every Saturday night from 8-10pm on Sirius Shade 45**
