“U Can’t Touch This” is an MC Hammer hit that has become an iconic phrase in pop culture. The music is based on “Super Freak” by Rick James. Hammer was a bat boy for the Oakland A's baseball team, and got the name "Hammer" because he resembled baseball legend Hank Aaron, known as "Hammerin' Hank." Members of The A's helped pay for Hammer's recordings, and he emerged from the West Coast rap scene in the late '80s and made history with parachute pants and “Chinese Typewriter” dance moves .
