Verb’s Top 5 Hype Men: 2 Big MC

“Too Big MC. He was MC Hammer’s hype man…”- Verb in HYPE MAN, p.84

The second hype man on Verb’s top 5 is 2 Big MC.

He is most recognized for his work on MC Hammer’s 1990 album “Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em,” and he would bring an immense energy to performances alongside MC Hammer. 2 Big MC would hype up the audience during dance breaks while MC Hammer would break it down with his back up dancers. Notably, “Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em” was a huge commercial success, selling 10 million copies and making it one of the highest selling albums of all time.

2 Big MC later went on to perform as a solo artist on his own record “He’s The King of Hype.” Get a look at his energy (and some sweet throwback dance moves) below:
