Editors’ Notes There's no denying that MC Hammer is best known for his worldwide smash "U Can't Touch This"—but the dancing machine had already established himself as a strong fixture on the Oakland hip-hop scene by the time that dropped in 1990. His debut album, 1987's independently-released Feel My Power, saw him scoring hits that bumped on the local club circuit, while 1988's Let's Get It Started foreshadowed the crossover success that was just around the corner. Check out the full scale of Hammer's legacy with this collection of his cornerstone tracks.
