Jonn Hart channels an MC Hammer classic for new "Hammertime" music video

A Bay Area singer/songwriter gets the cosign from a hometown legend.

You can never go wrong with a strong 90s sample and heavy backend, and Jonn Hart channeled a hit by fellow Bay Area native MC Hammer into a new dancefloor filler of his own.

With REVOLT TV exclusive "Hammertime," the Bay Area singer/songwriter gives a last-minute bid to enjoy the summer lending a hefty 808 knock to Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" while infusing his own irresistible melodies. Nef The Pharoah and Clyde Carson each lend cameos to further complete the song. MC Hammer himself even gives a cameo and a shout out in the video, giving the record even more of a Bay Area stamp of approval.

"I've had the idea to make a song called HammerTime for some years now," Hart said. "When I was in the studio with my producer Clayton William and we flipped 'U Can't Touch This' by MC Hammer, the rest was history. I left the studio that night with a Crazy SLAP paying homage to MC Hammer and The Bay."
