Rap icon MC Hammer has demonstrated that his issues with Jay-Z over a recent taunt are far from over by releasing a trailer hinting at an upcoming diss record entitled, "Better Run Run!"

While Hammer is not present in the trailer, a message at the end reveals an October 31st date.

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)

Over the weekend, reports claimed that religious tension was at fault for the tension 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, how Kanye 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")

Following the song's release last month, Hammer warned Jay about the consequence of calling him out.

"@kanyewest jay-hoe aka #HellBoy Tell Jay Oct 31 (Devils Nite) We'll see if this record and video"Hurt's Him" .. #IamHammer," Hammer tweeted on Saturday (September 25).
"KING HAMMER:You wanted my attention #HellBoy (Jigga) got it .. #IamHammer."
