Rap veteran MC Hammer has confirmed speculation about a Jay-Z diss record called "Better Run Run" has been recorded.
Although Hammer did not provide a link to the song, he tweeted about his new anthem.
"jblack98 @MCHammer I'm glad u exposed Jz. So many pple don't kno n I think even Christians period r in the dark. This stuff is deeper than we think.," Hammer re-tweeted on Halloween.
"In West Oakland knockin' this #BetterRunRun ... Streets loving' it!!! #KingHammer."
"toddtuller1 @MCHammer the jay z explanation was great. I never put 2n2 together. I think you opened a lot of peoples eyes. Peace brother." (MC Hammer's Twitter)
Earlier in the week, Hammer released a promotional trailer painting Jay-Z as a devil worshipper.
With a couple of days before his scheduled Jay-Z diss video, MC Hammer has released a trailer for his retaliation music video entitled "Better Run Run." The video features a red devli-looking person dressed up and running through a parking garage. Smoke is also coming out of the masked person's face. After a long twitter rant by Hammer, the emcee announced that he would release a retaliation record on October 31st. "Better Run Run!" -King Hammer- Oct 31st (Hip Hop Wired)
Last weekend, reports claimed religious tension was at fault for the issues between Jay-Z and the "Too Legit To Quit" entertainer.
I know, people have totally forgotten about this one by now, but I got a recent tip that seems to give insight on what happened here. Now, you know Hammer is a serious Christian. Remember, howKanye West used to be with the whole "Jesus Walks" period of time? Well, I heard Hammer sort of became endeared by Kanye's affinity for Christianity. So, I heard, Hammer had a conversation with him about Jay-Z, who he now refers to as "hell boy" or "the beast." Well....I don't know what happened after that, but I heard something got back to Jay and caused Jay to go at Hammer. I'm sure the truth will come out, but these are the rumors from the sources I have. (All Hip Hop)
On Kanye West's "So Appalled" collaboration, Jay references Hammer's fall from fame and publicized bankruptcy woes despite being a platinum-selling artist in the early 1990's.
"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." ("So Appalled")
