Customer Reviews

best he ever did

Look Hammer will never e confused as being a great rhymer. This release has Ted Riley behind the beats so its more a lot better sounding than the other stuff he made

another great album

i bought this album and i love it. more than please hammer. this was funky and more hammer and original. pumps and a bump was awesome. hammer kept it going here.

Holding on by a thread

I think the review by Durandel was too harsh. Yes, this wasn't Hammer's best album but, it did have its moments. I bought this on cassette back in the day as a huge Hammer fan. Yes, I felt the overall product as a whole wasn't his best but there were some gems. "Breaking Off Something Proper", "It's All Good", "Don't Stop", and the smash "Pumps and a Bump" are the definite standouts. So if you want just the songs, there you have it. Don't buy the entire album though.

Still, he had an ear for catchy source material, and that helped his second album, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, become the best-selling rap album...
