Interim San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has firmly locked up the MC Hammer vote.

That's right, the 1990s rapper stars in a campaign video for Lee that was released Tuesday by a group called "San Franciscans for Jobs and Good Government."

The video features San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson, former 49er Ronnie Lott, Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, and yes, Hammer himself, parodying his 1991 hit "2 Legit 2 Quit."

The lyrics include: "My music hits me so hard, Newsom left and they put him in charge. Thank you, for blessing me and the rest of the city with Mayor Ed Lee."
