Stanley Kirk Burrell (born March 30, 1962), known better by his stage names MC Hammer and Hammer, is an African-American multi-platinum selling MC and dancer most popular during the late 1980s until the mid-1990s, known for his dramatic "rise and fall" from fame and fortune and his trademark Hammer Pants. He became a preacher during the late 1990s and as of 2008 works as a co-initiator of a dance website, television show host and CEO, still performing occasionally at concerts and other functions in addition to his own reality show.

Previously living in Tracy, California, he currently lives in Oakland with his wife Stephanie of 23 years and six children, three boys and three girls (one now in college). Throughout his career, MC Hammer has managed his own recording business, Oaktown Records.

Although considered a "forefather" of entertainment rap music (or "pop rap") at one time, due to his mainstream appeal since the late 1980s, he would later be considered a "sell-out" rapper by many. Nonetheless, BET ranked Hammer as the #7 Best Dancer Of All Time.
