"Hammertime" is an A&E reality show that follows the day to day life of one of the first mainstream pop rappers, MC Hammer (also known as Stanley Kirk Burrell). Hammer, his family, and friends live in Tracy, California. "Hammertime" premiered on A&E on June 14, 2009, with Hammer serving as executive producer. "Hammertime" is not Hammer's first venture into reality. He was also on the first season of "The Surreal Life" and was featured on VH1's "I Married…MC Hammer."

Joining Hammer in the series is his wife of 24 years, Stephanie, who has been with him through both his career highs and lows. It is estimated that Hammer earned around $33 million dollars early on in his career. Hits like "U Can't Touch This" and "Too Legit to Quit" rocketed him to the top of the charts. Fans also loved his flashy wardrobes and smooth dancing. His dance move, Hammer Dance (also known as the Typewriter) became an overnight sensation. At the height of his career, you could find Hammer's image on lunchboxes, MC Hammer dolls (made by Mattel), and other items. He even had his own cartoon, "Hammerman."

But, by the late '90s, gangster rap began to replace the pop rap that dominated the airwaves earlier in the decade. Hammer was very benevolent with his fortune and by 1996, all the money was gone and he had to declare bankruptcy. The family has spent the last 17 years trying to adjust to a middle class lifestyle.

Hammer began the slow climb back up the ladder of fame, becoming a preacher in the late '90s, officiating "The Surreal Life" costars Corey Feldman and Vince Neil's individual weddings. Hammer has also served as a television host, dance judge, record label CEO, and co-creator or DanceJam, a community site which features dance videos.

Joining Hammer and Stephanie in the show are their five children: A'keiba (who is in college) , 16 year old Sarah, 13 year old Stanley Jr. (Booby), 11 year old Jeremiah, and 4 year old Sammy. Hammer and Stephanie have also been raising their nephew Jamaris since he was 10 years old. Also joining the cast is Cousin Marv.
