6. Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story (2001)

Romany Malco plays the parachute-wearing rap pioneer in this VH1 biopic, a true rags-to-riches-and-back-to-rags story beginning with the rapper as a impoverished youth in the slums of Oakland, working as a bat-boy for the Athletics baseball team. He went on to become the highest selling artist in hip-hop with hits like “U Can’t Touch This” in constant rotation, and a personal fortune estimated at $30 million. He even had a dishwasher installed in his bedroom to clean up his midnight snacks! But withinfive years it was all gone. Even though the real-life Hammer has a production credit, the film gives an honest and interesting portrayal of a man with faults.
