The once great rapper and dancer extraordinaire MC Hammer (now King Hammer) has unleashed some lines (as a response) against rap’s biggest mogul and superstar Jay-Z, insinuating that Jay-Z is a “devil” worshipper who made a pact with the devil for his riches. The latter a not-so-subtle hint from the now struggling former multimillionaire Hammer about rumors Jay-Z belongs to a secret society.
See the USAfrica embedded video for the upbeat attack song “Better Run Run.”
King Hammer’s new song is his promised response to Jay-Z recent lines on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Friday release “So Appalled.”
Jay Z who has new book out in a few weeks had rapped in referenced Hammer’s money troubles over the years that: “And Hammer went broke so you know I’m more focused / I lost 30 mil’ so I spent another 30 / ‘Cause unlike Hammer 30 million can’t hurt me.”
USAfricaMUSIC and USAfricaonline.com social pulse index show that King Hammer’s release of the video this morning, about 90minutes ago at the time of this report is drawing heavy attention. It is a single from his upcoming album. Hammer dissed Jay-Z further by rapping the devil promised and gave him the “girl.”
The next question I believe is: what will be the response from Jay-Z (the Jiggaman..H.O.V.A) to Hammer?
Jay-Z is known for his mad skills in responding to attacks songs.
Or will he will just let slide off his shoulder like he once rapped: poof…vamoose….
