Jay-Z On MC Hammer: “I Didn’t Know I Was The First Person To Say That.”

Posted by J. Tinsley on November 3, 2010

Funny how @MCHammer is dissing Jay-Z, meanwhile, Hov bigs him up in his book, Decoded.B. Dot

For those that don’t know, Rap Radar’s own B. Dot recently cross the burning sands and became the newest member of the Illuminati. While that previous statement was a joke, he did call it damn near verbatim. Jay-Z sat down with Semtex for an interview on a list of topics. The number one surrounding Hov at the moment involves MC Hammer and his “diss” video, if you want to call it that.

The following audio clip is Shawn’s take on the entire nonsense.

On the other, everyone and their publicist knows Hammer is known as the antagonist for money management. So while it may be a diss, there’s also a lot of truth in Jay’s allusion as well.

Way back in 1991 while riding to school with my mom (she taught at the same school I attended), there was one song she was mandated to play EVERY morning, excluding nothing. M.C. Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This” was the first hip-hop song I remember on my long joyous rode through the years of the music. There was once a time when I was almost Hammer for Halloween, but decided to run with a Ninja Turtles outfit last minute because parachute pants weren’t in stock in the Central Virginia region.

And let’s be honest, you can’t be Hammer without the parachute pants. Needless to say, (Keep reading…)

"Celebrity Advertising…"

Posted by J. Tinsley on March 17, 2009

I don’t know what’s the scariest thing about this commercial.

  • The fact that it’s only shown at “B.E.T. Uncut” hours.
  • The fact that MC Hammer was labeled as a “famous rap star”.
  • The fact Ed McMahon has a gold hip replacement.

OR… (Keep reading…)
