A homegrown Bay Area music legend teamed up with a homegrown politician to help California's community colleges on Thursday.

MC Hammer and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom took part in "Hands Across California" at City College of San Francisco. The statewide effort hopes to raise awareness of looming budget cuts across America's, largest community college system.

Three million students attend two-year schools in California. Hammer studied at Oakland's Laney College in his younger days.
