The Funky Headhunter
Crude or Profane Language
Drug and Alcohol Content
Other Negative Elements
Violent threats abound. Boastful of his earlier successes and bitter toward his critics, Hammer states "these are the days of the payback." "Pumps and a Bump" includes lewd lines like "should I get it in . . . 'cause I'm comin' quick . . . slip out your clothes and take a tip." He brags about the ease of "scoring" sexually on "Don't Fight the Feelin'." "Help Lord" wallows in ghetto despair ("no love, no hope, no life").
In the past, Hammer hit the nail on the head with predominantly positive messages. Not this time. Headhunter is a radical departure-without his usual social conscience.
