    ***REALLY SAD TO SEE THIS ERA DIED***
    MC Hammer was considered a sellout for what every mainstream rapper aspires to be today.
    Most of todays rappers are sellouts and this generatoins doesn’t realize it. . .
    When Hammer did Pepsi and BK commercials he was “giving our music away”. Now you can see Jay-Z, TI, Diddy, Jeezy, JD, etc all doing it without any problem, why?? Because the industry destroyed how we originally saw OUR music.

    damn man, i loved P.E. when i was a youngin, i’m talkin pre-teen young….. i didn’t fully grasp the depth of things there were speaking on but knew they was speakin on some powerfully deep shit, just by the imagery of the group as well as their videos and command in Chuck’s voice…..

    i got an unconditional love for them brothers for actually “trying” to do something beneficial for not only the social state of hip-hop back then but also for the minority community in general.

    i usually don’t watch too much TV, but i’ll try to catch it if i’m at home when it airs…
