TIMES SQUARE — Stop — Gangnam time.

Hip-hop icon MC Hammer joined Korean YouTube sensation Psy on stage in Times Square to perform a mash-up of the latter’s smash hit “Gangnam Style” and the ’90s hit maker’s “Too Legit to Quit.”

The “U Can't Touch This” star did Psy’s now-famous “horse dance” as hundreds of thousands of revelers packed the Crossroads of the World for the annual New Year’s Eve party.

Hammer, decked out in his trademark oversized pants, jammed with the Korean pop star, who donned a white suit complete with a fur vest during the performance.

Psy’s megahit has gotten more than a billion views on YouTube and earned him worldwide acclaim for the catchy tune.

Psy reportedly plans to stop performing "Gangnam Style" to concentrate on new material.
