Hammer’s House Party is the latest iconic package tour created by Universal Attractions Agency in partnership with MC Hammer. With Hammer being largely off the touring scene and deeply involved in tech, philanthropy, and prison reform (The Last Mile) over the last decade, he decided it was time to give his fans what they wanted – a proper tour. Hammer says of UAA’s co-owner Jeff Epstein, “When Jeff pitched the idea to me for Hammers House Party, I loved the concept and the potential lineups and we collectively hit the ground running.. it’s Hammertime.”

“Hammer continues to be one of our top clients, and he’s one of the hardest working and most giving people I know,” says Epstein, “The demand for him as a performer has actually increased while he’s been off the touring circuit. He truly is 2 legit to quit!”

SiriusXM FLY plays hip hop and R&B songs from the ‘90s and 2000s. Listeners will hear music from artists including Snoop Dogg, Boys II Men, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, Jodeci, Dr. Dre, Lauryn Hill, Fugees, 2Pac, Missy Elliott and Notorious B.I.G.
