Oakland. The town. Birthplace of Luke Skywalker and MC Hammer. The city of champions and the Golden State Warriors. An enterprising group of Minecraft enthusiasts sought to recreate it over the past 10 days in the game, and their work goes into a museum this weekend.
MC Hammer once had a house atop a hill off the 680 near Fremont, Calif., and every time I passed it I'd say to myself, "Self, some day I'll write a Kotaku post about MC Hammer." That day has come.
We definitely know that Activision's got something MC Hammer related on its 2009 plate. But photo evidence of the Funky Headhunter standing next to CEO Bobby Kotick? 2 legit not 2 post!
Know that, despite his advancing years, MC Hammer is down with your technology, kids. In particular, he's all up in this Twitter business, keeping in touch (oh, and leaking potential video game projects).
