Hammer Time is coming to Indy!
According to Indy Star, MC Hammer, who is known for hits such as “U can’t touch this” and “2 legit 2 quit,” is scheduled to be at the Indiana Women’s Prison today to celebrate the prison’s inaugural computer coding class with Gov. Eric Holcomb.

Holcomb brought the program to Indiana as part of his 2018 legislative agenda in order to give incarcerated women a chance to learn how to code, and prepare to reenter the workforce upon release with a new valuable skill set.
The idea is both to decrease recidivism and create a more skilled workforce.
Hammer is reportedly involved because he is on the board of The Last Mile program, which provides a coding course to prisoners that can be used without internet access.
