Here Comes the Hammer!

It was 1990 all over again last night outside of Hyde in Hollywood as our cameras caught the legendary MC Hammer.

Decked out in a hooded fur coat, Hammer was a bit of a walking contradiction. First, when one onlooker noticed his cigar wasn't lit, he offered Hammer a light ... but Hammer said he didn't smoke.

Then, when asked about his upcoming projects, Hammer said he didn't like self-promotion. In the next sentence, he proceeded to talk about his movie at Sundance, his next album in April and the video he's shooting for the song "Bring Our Brothers Home." He even performed part of the song as he waited for his limo!

Hammer isn't too legit to self-promote.
