The most random hip-hop beef ever continues today as Jay-Z responds to MC Hammer’s music video insults, saying Hammer’s “going to be embarrassed.” You’re about 20 years too late for that, Jay! Oh wait…you mean embarrassed by his recent insane video or by his entire career? NEITHER?!?!
In an interview about his upcoming memoir Decoded, Jay-Z laughed, “He’s going to be embarrassed, I said some really great things about him in the book … It is what it is. He took it the wrong way.” Given that Jay-Z used his verse on Kanye’s song So Appalled to rap about how “Hammer went broke”, we’re pretty sure that the angry MC took it the exact right way. Then again, those giant gold medallions didn’t buy themselves, now did they, Hammer…?
In the end though, Jay-Z doesn’t seem all that apologetic about his crack. Surprised that Hammer would mind being made fun of by a rap superstar in song, Jay-Z said, “I didn’t know that [topic] wasn’t on the table for discussion.” Oh, it is definitely still on the table. It is on the table next to a huge pile of shimmery purple harem pants, where it’s always been. And always will be.
