My Grandmother (a retired seamstress) bought that sewing pattern above so she could make me some parachute pants because I begged her for some fuckin' Hammer pants so bad! I worshiped Hammer back in the day! One of my greatest childhood memories was when my mother took me to see him on his "Too Legit to Quit" tour when it came to Pensacola. I got invite on stage to dance with some other kids but I got cold feet and punked out! smh
I used to watch the Hammer cartoon, I had the Too Legit to Quit videotape, a hat, etc..
My obsession with him was pre-funky headhunter and that horrific soft porn Pumps-n-a-Bump video. By that time I was in a full time Wu, Nas, B.I.G mind frame...THANK GOD!!!
