Wayback Wednesday: Hammer- “Pumps & A Bump”
This week, Kaboom! Magazine.com “Wayback Wednesday” takes us all the way back to the year 1993. “Pumps and a Bump” is a song by Hammer, released as the first single from his album The Funky Headhunter. The song was his last top forty hit in the United States. Hammer debuted the album and music video for “Pumps and a Bump” two months before its release on The Arsenio Hall Show and finally released it in March 1994. “Pumps and a Bump” proved to be a controversial track on this album, somewhat affecting Hammer’s image. However, the single peaked at #3 on the US Rap charts. It was banned from heavy rotation on MTV with censors claiming that the depiction of Hammer in Speedos (and with what appeared to be an erection) was too graphic.
