Jay-Z is the king of subliminal disses. Most of the time, rappers and fans have to dissect his lyrics trying to figure out who Hov is going at. But he obviously wasn’t too worried about MC Hammer replying back to his diss on Kanye West’s “So Appalled” record, because he mentioned him by name.
“I lost 30 mill, so I spent another 30 / ’cause unlike Hammer, 30 mill can’t hurt me.” Jigga spit on the track.
Well, Hammer was listening and he’s heated. Replying to Jay, both on Twitter and on film by releasing a video showing him hitting a punching bag
“Warming up… all substance.. no hype… What’s the rhyme that can make you tough??? Yeah.. Ok… thats what I thought.. Slap the taste out them #HellBoys mouths… #IamHammer,” is written in the video description.
“Hellboy” is the nickname Hammer has given Jay-Z, possibly referring to rumors that Hov is a satanist.
This is Mc Hammer’s response
