MC Hammer Talks iPhones, Twitter, and Web-Induced Unrest in Iran

Early this month, a huge group of dancers wearing Hammer Pants stormed a trendy store in Los Angeles and grooved their way to viral video stardom. In one flashmob, MC Hammer was back -- in a big way (although in our eyes, he never left). The '90s rapper and dancer now has his own TV show ('Hammertime,' Sundays at 10 PM EST on A&E) and is well on the way to Internet mogul-status, thanks to his dance video site We were fortunate enough to have a little Hammertime of our own recently when the MC stopped by our studio to talk a little tech.

A true gadget lover, Hammer somehow managed to sneak a second iPhone into the interview (despite the best efforts of our hardcore sound guy to confiscate all interference-causing cell phones before hitting the 'record button'). Check out the video above, where the man himself riffs about Twitter, his absolutely favorite gadget, and the democratic power of the realtime Web as witnessed by the unrest in Iran -- that's right, Hammer's deep like that.
