Hey Snoop, please don't send posse of Crips or Bloods to come get me, but this song, yuk, It's your worst song ever, your lucky Dre didn't destroy your career here, but obviously you rebounded in a major way, you're legend now, but this song, sorry, never felt it, it felt and still does feel so plastic to me.
Yes that's right, a song by MC Hammer has made the list of songs that should of never been made, in my opinion anyways....why this song?
1. Way over produced, way to many things going on in it, like a giant star before it implodes.
2. Song trying to appeal to to many genres of music fans all at once from soul, to pop, to house music, to studio cartoon rap, to soul train, to hobbits, to adults to Hollywood and more, the song just tries to be to many things, and as such ends up being, really, nothing.
3. And the song really has no memorable melody to it.
This song, to me, represents a gigantic mall that was built, then utilized for a few years, or less, then abandoned, and now grass and weeds grow around and in it.
And by the way, I like MC Hammer, even had exchange with him once on social media, back when 'celebrities' actually used their accounts, until the public took advantage of that...he's a really cool humble and even 'street' guy, back in the day he'd beat you up for talking bad about him..just ask 'Red Man' the rapper..(look it up on YT)
But this song here, just way to 'fat', and near after this song he, MC Hammer, just went off into 'nothingville'......which lead to a much more humble song he made that sums up his early rap career, after he fell, after all his supposed friends and allies bailed on him.
After he'd lost it all, or in process of losing it all, this song came out, it was when he was still some what 'street', before he found all that gospel crap.
(I trust true street people more so than I do those who claim to have found the gospel, but that's for another post and topic).
And this song here 'Keep on', was one of Tupac Shakur's favorite songs.
Anyways, went on a bit long with this post, probably cause has meaning to me, more so than the other Artists, in that MC Hammer actually communicated with me once, and to this day I find that special, and know he'd appreciate my loving honesty about the song 'To Legit to Quit', and how I don't think it should of never been made, it simply gave those around him, on his pay roll, one more big pay check, one more chance to use and abuse his kindness, before they all 'scrammed' and left him hanging once he lost it all.
Bless your heart MC Hammer, to me you're a cool dude.
This song has always depressed me, and heard it on the radio on the way home, not sure why a 2021 DJ would even still have this song in any mix line up, but they did, and the song still depresses me even today.
So it makes the list of songs, that in my opinion, should of never been made, and wish were not in the rotation of songs in my mind which all bring back not the best memories for me.
