4.0 out of 5 stars Did He Say 'ULTIMATE O.G.'? HaHaHa... January 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Mayne,mayne,mayne...by the time this album dropped, Death Row was rakin' in millions with Dre,Snoop, and the Dogg Pound, dance/pop-rap had become a thing of the past, Hammer was goin' broke and perplexed cause his peeps had flipped on him and his sells were droppin' dramatically behind Too Legit,Hammer started kickin' it with Suge & Tha Row, and on top o' that, other lyricists had jokes. So Funky Headhunter was pretty much Hammer's war declaration to all the critics from inside and outside his circle. The production was, of course, tight, bein' that some of the tracks were laid by Daz & Kurupt(DPG)...as a matter of fact, some joints were remindin' me of Too Short when they weren't soundin' like Snoop should've come thru with some cameos. Vintage Hammer music, danceable hits, only with a lot more edge, darkness, and intensity. The only problem that I had with this release,however, was the fact that my boi tried to take his image from Church hop to Crip hop...how you gonna go from 'Do Not Pass Me By' to claimin' to be an Oaktown Mack and the Ultimate O.G., bustin' on Q-Tip, Redman, Blacksheep(weak disses I might add), and thus crucifyin' your credibility? Lookin' back, Hammer was keepin' it reallest when he was dance-rappin', sellin'/makin' millions, and turnin' a deaf ear to the 'gangsta' critics who later popped out themselves. But musically, Funky Headhunters a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars YES, I'M STILL DOWN WIT MC HAMMER! January 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
OUT OF ALL OF HAMMER'S ALBUMS, THIS ONE IS THE BEST. THIS ALBUM FLOPPED DUE TO THE FACT THAT HAMMER HAD TRYED TO GO GANGSTA. ACTUALLY, HAMMER SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT MORE LYRICS ON THIS ALBUM, HE USES BETTER BEATS, AND HE EVEN SOUNDS BETTER ON THIS ALBUM. SURE, HAMMER WAS SERIOUSLY GOING UNDER AT THE TIME THIS ALBUM HIT THE STORES, BUT IT WAS A GREAT ALBUM. THE BEST SONGS ARE ''HELP LORD [WON'T YOU COME]?'', ''IT'S ALL GOOD'', ''ONE MORE TIME'', ''SLEEPIN ON A MASTER PLAN'', ''BREAK EM OFF SOMETHIN PROPER'', AND ''SOMETHIN BOUT THE GOLDIE IN ME''. EVEN THOUGH HAMMER WAS TRYIN TO BE GANGSTA ON THIS ALBUM, HE STILL MANAGED TO KEEP HIS LYRICS CLEAN. THIS CD IS A KICK-A** CD. IT HAS SOME SUPRISINGLY GOOD FLOWS AND IT HAS SOME GOOD SONGS THAT'RE GREAT FOR PARTYING. IF YOU LISTEN TO THE LYRICS, YOU WILL NOTICE THAT HAMMER DISSED MC SERCH FROM 3RD BASS, A TRIBE CALLED QUEST, RUN DMC, REDMAN, KRISS KROSS, AND RODNEY O. THA DOGG POUND LAY DOWN A FEW LINES ON ''SLEEPIN ON A MASTER PLAN''.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! The Pumps and a Bump!!! December 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Pumps and a Bump is the tightest song i've ever heard. That song is total gangsta. If this album didn't have this song and One Mo' Time, this album would be a 1 star album. With those two songs I think it deserves 5 Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, the best Hammer album February 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
With his previous albums, Hammer relied on huge hits to sell his albums. This time around, he he didn't score any huge hits, but the result isn't that bad. Hammer's technique has definitely improved, and the beats are funkier. "Pumps and a Bump" is the obvious winner here, even though it's way too long. A lot of good tracks, though, with "Don't Stop" and "It's All Good." The album falls off a little bit in the second half, but overall, it's a pretty good effort. It's a shame it didn't sell well, probably because America was so enthralled with the stuff Dre and Snoop were throwing out (although those were their best days). If you're a fan of Hammer or even semi-hard rap, it's definitely worth a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ha Ha Ha! November 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I dont care about going bankrupt or him going from Pop to being Hardcore the beats on this album is pretty good and its a little funny that Hammer is dissin Run DMC(who did the same thing Pop to trying to be hardcore) and Redman and Q-tip(I wonder how did he get the rights to that did u say hammer proper) but anyway, Hey what can I say its alright to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally Underrated January 18, 2012
By AndrewB
Format:Audio CD
Clearly Hammer's career was dead in the water after that first single, which is a shame because this gangsta-rap era release is some of the best of the genre. The album's clearly derivative of the death row rap scene, but it's tighter, more accessible and in many ways better executed.

Definitively 90's, definitively gangsta.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too late..but June 12, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
IF this was Hammer's debut Cd, it would have been DA BOMB. It's got some of the hardest beats and a great variety of producers from Teddy Riley to the Dogg Pound. It would have gone multi-platinum if it got a bigger push....no doubt. 100% pure funk!

1.0 out of 5 stars A true embarrassment for Hammer February 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"The Funky Headhunter" was one of the worst ideas that Hammer (nee' MC Hammer) could have come up with. It proved that he was not completely committed to dance-drive, entertaining brand of rap, and was influenced by the criticisms of others of his earlier efforts. While it is true that his two mega-hit albums "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em" and "Too Legit 2 Quit" don't quite qualify as 'hardcore' rap (Heck they aren't even in the same zip code), they did earn Hammer a legion of fans who loved his style of music. Unfortunately, he caved to the criticism and came out with this 'hardcore' album. His reputation with the tougher elements of the hip-hop industry was already cemented. So, there was no way this album could change their views. The effect it did have was that it alienated all of fans who enjoyed his earlier work. Raunchy bump-and-grind tracks like "pumps and a bump" and lackluster anthems like "It's all good" are just embarrassing attempts to obtain some sort of 'credibility'. Hammer should never had made this album. It is hardly surprising that his career imploded after this.
