The Marxist symbol representing the factory workers, the sickle representing the farmers. Together they represent the uninted Proletariat.

This has now become corrupted by greedy tyrants such as Stalin and mao, to be a symbol of corrupt, totalitarian "Communist" dictatorships.

A slang term used to refer to something as fashionably attractive or impressive. Hammer refers to "2 Legit 2 Quit", a song by rap artist Hammer, released in 1991 as both the title track and first single of his third studio album, Too Legit to Quit. It proved to be successful in the U.S., peaking at the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, at #5. The single also peaked at #60 on the UK Singles Chart. Hit songs "This is the Way We Roll" and "2 Legit 2 Quit" were performed by Hammer on Saturday Night Live. Along with "Addams Groove", and other songs, "2 Legit 2 Quit" was featured in the film The Addams Family in 1991.
Rap artists of the 2010's used the term to replace "Cool" or "Legit".

ham·mer n.

A particularity difficult and gnarly trick performed on a skateboard, the emphasis being on the sickness, as opposed to grace or flair of its execution. Usually down or over a large obstacle, more often than not, sets of stairs and handrails, often switch and at great risk to the skateboardist.

Origins: Popularised and derived from "Hammertime" (MC Hammer), to Hammer (verb), and then to noun, e.g. a Hammer is the product of said ‘Hammertime’ (to ‘go off’, ‘come up’, ‘kill it’ or ‘bust out’).

This meaning of Hammer is promoted most vigorously by Jim Greco. Although once a staple of the 'Hesh' community, Hammers now transcend all hesh/fresh barriers, as the documentation of such Hammers is closely linked with making mo' money though incentives and sponsorship, and translates seamlessly into the philosophy of mainstream rap.
"I got a mad hammer filmed for my part, i'm so ill I make me sick"

"yeah he can throw mad hammers, whatever, his steez mings; pushes like a buggered penguin having an epileptic fit"
