(Newser) – MC Hammer will follow his upcoming concert with Vanilla Ice with another project sure to inspire nostalgia: a half-hour reality show. Hammertime, which will air later this year, follows the once-bankrupt rapper as he "lives a more economically balanced life," the A&E show's reps said. Hammer's wife and five kids will also appear, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"He's had his ups and downs, and it's what makes him such a character you root for," says the show's executive producer.
