MC Hammer says his new internet search engine will be bigger than Google.

The infamous 80s rapper, whose hits include You Can't Touch This and 2 Legit 2 Quit, has spent the last two years developing something he calls WireDoo.

CNN reported WireDoo would not only deliver direct results for search queries, but also detailed related content.

"It's about relationships beyond just the keywords," Hammer, real name Stanley Burrell, reportedly said when he unveiled WireDoo at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.

Hammer released his last album in 2006, and since then has focused his attentions on clothing lines, tech ventures and Twitter, on which he has 2.2 million followers.
