MC Hammer Dead? Pray It Ain't So!

10/10/2007 1:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MC HammerRumors have been rampant over the Internet that MC Hammer recently died. Hammer's time?

TMZ has learned that Hammer, aka Stanley Burrell, is very much alive. His rep tells us that someone else with the name of Stanley Burrell died recently, and people have been confusing the two.

We're told Hammer is bringing his career back from the grave by starting up a new website called DanceJam. People can upload videos of themselves dancing, and hammer will critique them and rate your moves.

Paging Alfonso Ribiero!

I'm glad it was just a rumor, "Genie Pantz Hammer" was entertaining and famous for those ridiculous genie styled pajama pants! The TV show, "In Living Color" had a skit spoofing Hammer and it was absolutely hilarious! Even the actors couldn't contain themselves laughing when the lead actor (Tommy Davidson, I think) while dancing on a platform fell off, due to those genie pants! It was absolutely hilarious!!

I fricking LOVE The Hammer......he was an icon many years ago and I'm glad to hear that he didn't die! I'd love to see him tear up a dance floor again. I saw him in concert many years ago and he was AWESOME!!! Come Back Hammer, come back to us!!
