'2 Legit 2 Quit'

MC Hammer was already on a downward trajectory when he released "2 Legit 2 Quit" in 1991, but that didn't stop him from dropping millions on a music video that featured cameos from James Brown, James Belushi and a dozen professional athletes as well as a knock at Michael Jackson. Hammer was so deluded at this point that he thought he was on the verge of unseating as the King of Pop.
