This CD, to me, is the culmination of MC Hammer's style. He kept the funky hip-hop beats that grab you and force you to dance, and kept everything positive at the same time. There is NO song better than 2 Legit to Quit for dancing and it was done while telling you NOT TO GIVE UP if you believe in something. If that's not positive, what is?
Personally, I hope MC Hammer returns to the scenes. I'll buy him in a heartbeat....

Quite simply put, this is M.C Hammers best album, with a close second being his first album Too Legit to Quit. His second album, the one which blew up so big, "Please Hammer Don't Hurt Em", is actually the album I personally now find TOTALLY unlistenable and corny...this album is where M.C Hammer made another stab at really being a serious artist...while "Let's Get It Started" is really legitamate party rap ( no less so than Moe Dee, much of Kane's music at the time, LL, Run, Kid n Play ), this is the album Hammer made after concieving himself as a "major" artist. In that way it reminds me of what Diddy did last year with "Press Play"...it also reminds me of other hip hop albums like "Apocalypse 91", "Predator", "Wu Tang Forever" in which an artist makes a strong work that's pretty much disregarded by the hip hop community because of the perception of their past work and the attitude that they've "crossed over."

The cold and sad fact about the crabs in a basket mentality pervading hip hop journalism and critique is that any arist who's brilliant and at some time "disses" another artist for becoming commercial, must at some date in his career face that same fate. Ice Cube, who dissed Hammer in "Be True to the Game", was seen as going commercial when he did "We Be Clubbin"...the Wu Tang Clan who dissed several M.C's in an interlude on their Triumph album, find themselves with a dwindling black audience. No matter how gangsta or thug you may be, you're not exempt from the rule of "what goes up must come down", and M.C's become victims of the very same yard sticks of authenticity they promote in their youth...hip hop still hasn't learned to grow up...this is GROWN FOLKS BIZ YA"LL.

At the end of 1991 though, your boy wasn't thinking about that...

I want to relive my carefree college days by buying my favorite artists from back in the day. My personal favorite from this album is "Pray". It almost sounds more gospel than rap.

I bought this TLTQ back in '91 when i still liked music (?!). After (mc)hammer's smash hit album 'Please hammer don't hurt them', he came up with this ambitious bulldozer with epic and yes even dramatic dimensions, complete with the hammering (héhé), migraine-provoking chants that rather belong in a football stadium than on a record. Compared to the club-like,relatively intimate setting of PHDHT with accordingly simple means, here, ample resources have been addressed with accordingly the feel of a vast, inhospitable realm not suitable i guess for the agoraphobic, the great outdoors, you know. Is it as funny or carefree as PHDHT? Funny? I doubt it. Carefree? Believe it or not but the rhythm in TLTQ is not very spontaneous, it has a rather oldfashioned (almost classical!) feel to it. And also the assemblage of tracks is somewhat deliberate and calculated (yeah Put her in the mix!). Despite the social and humanitarian awareness that seems to be on the forefront, the whole concept feels rather cold (like metal - no not the genre - like metal of a hammer - no not the artist.. uhm..). Grand symphony of rap? Well, anyway it's an impressive and admirable accomplishment that here and there might give you goosebumps and that's what it's all about, right?

Most entertaining or characteristic tracks (to me,that is) 1, 6, 8, 12,13

TOO LEGIT TO QUIT,released in October 1991,was the second meaghit for this artist,now simply known as Hammer. The success of PLEASE HAMMER DON'T HURT 'EM,released only 20 months earlier,prompted Hammer to record this album immediately. Aside from the title track,hits include the religiously themed DO NOT PASS ME BY and THIS IS THE WAY WE ROLL. Shortly after this album was released,Hammer guest-hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live and was a musical guest as well. In that episode,he performed THIS IS THE WAY WE ROLL and the title track. Also,there's ADDAMS GROOVE,on the cassette format of this album. That track is from the movie "The Addams Family",based on the 1960's sitcom. All the aforementioned tracks would later appear on the GREATEST HITS compilation,released in 1996. This is Hammer's third album ever,and on the Capitol label(he would be dropped after this album).
