MC Hammer disses Jay-Z: Watch the ridiculous video here

MC-Hammer-vs-jay-zImage Credit: Steve Snowden/Getty Images; Gustavo Caballero/Getty ImagesMC Hammer is so angry at Jay-Z that he’s accusing the younger rapper of consorting with Satan, complete with a totally absurd dis track and video clip.

The kerfluffle dates back to September, when Jay-Z referenced Hammer’s well-known financial history on Kanye West’s “So Appalled”: “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.” Hammer retaliated by talking tough on Twitter about Jay-Z’s alleged deal with the devil, a masterful use of the “random non sequitur” rhetorical tactic.

Now Hammer is continuing to push this nonsensical theory with a little tune called “Better Run Run.” It’s a terrible song, but the video is actually pretty hilarious — though it should be noted that we are definitely laughing at, not with, Hammer and his hurt feelings.

Check out the clip after the jump. Skip the first snoozy minute and a half to get to the part where a Yankee-cap-wearing guy who looks sorta vaguely like Jay-Z (not really) is pursued through the woods by another dude in a budget-store demon costume. Later, “Jay-Z” and Beelzebub hang in a recording studio. Oooooh, scary!

Is MC Hammer — excuse me, “King Hammer,” as he now laughably refers to himself — serious with this trash? Watch for yourself and decide.

    • Nathan

    • Lionel

      For all of the Jay-Z lovers. There’s a dvd out the truth about hip hop it goes into details about the rap artist claiming to be equal to God and have satan msg on cds check it out on you tube.

    • Shug

      You can laugh at hammer all you want but last I checked he went broke trying to take the hood with him to riches if that is something to laugh at then I guess I am humorless, but Jay Z better watch out Satan can only help him on earth afterwards he will deal with GEE OH DEE for sheezy.

      • JENNIFER

      • frankie’s girl

        Thank you. I could not have said it better. Hammer stills has it too boot.

  • lefty

    Hammer…I would not try to rap battle with the best in the game.

    • kim

      IKR…..

    • kevin

      WTF? Jay Z the best? how many records has this man sold. Hammer sold almost 20 million off one album.

    • frankie’s girl

      wrong!!MC Hammer was naming the game before this snot nose was a pimple.

  • Cris

    Well, I do agree that Jay-Z must have made SOME sort of deal with the devil. No other way to explain how someone so lacking any musical talent could actually have so many fans.

    • kim

      Cris…No offense but what r u smokin….Jay-Z is one of the best rappers who has ever done it..

      • Davy K

        what? i mean jay-z has too much evidence showing he did make a deal with the devil. Before making fun why dont you actually do some research on aleister crowley and stuff Jay-Z does and says…

      • Nima

        jay-z does have a realtionship with satan, read about it… Hammer does have somthing a bit odd in the video, look at his shirt and look up baphomet…

    • Ls

      He did. He’s affil w illuminati

    • Hotepsekhemwe

      sho’nuff! Jay Z is the most lackluster, monotone, so-called rapper ever! Hammer may be a buster, but he IS telling the truth!

      • frankie’s girl

        YES he is!

  • MultiPass

    HIGH Larious

  • ARM

    I like Hammer, good job, I want to talk to BET, why in the he?? are you not playing Mr. R. Kelly music and disrespecting us by not giving us what we want, we want to hear the best, not who u all think is the most popular, in the name of God, please listen to what we want, I am two steps from not going to your web site anymore. I am trying to support our black race but I will not let no one program me into what I want to hear compared to what u people want us to hear,

  • umm wtf?

    Is this very Christian of MC Hammer to do? I mean he is a pastor and preaches about God all the time yet he makes a video like this? Makes me question if he is a pastor for real or for the money?

    • SE

      Retaliation does necessarily mean revenge when redemption for the enemy is one of the goals. If you see at the end of the video, Hammer is talking to the guy who is representing J-Z and then baptising him. This is an invitation from Hammer saying: “Hey, doesn’t matter what deal you’ve got or even what you said about me…you can break free and I can help you. I know who can stop the hold the devil has on you.” So to answer your question… Yes, it is a very Christian thing for Hammer to do. People think Christians are spineless people that just take whatever comes their way with no protest. That is not True….Study the character of Christ himself and you will see Love indeed, but strenght, conviction and boldness!

  • outside agitator

    MC Hammer vs Jay-Z? that’s kind of like the person who created The Ghost Whisperer vs the writer of Friday the 13th pt 13. they’re both godawful, just at different ends of the spectrum.

  • oj

    I can’t stand Jay-Z. His music’s popularity is clear evidence that this country is getting dumber. As for Hammer, dude, just hit Gay, I mean Jay-Z with a Stone Cold Stunner.

  • KOMPLEXXX

    @UMM WTF: I DONT THINK THAT MR HAMMER HAS DONE ANYTHING THAT ANY OTHER REAL PREACHER OR PARENT WOULD DO. JAY Z NEEDS TO BE HIT IN THE MOUTH FOR DISRESPECTING HIS ELDER IN THE GAME AND LIFE. AS FAR AS SEELING HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL I DISAGREE- KANYE WEST IS WHO RE-INVENTED JAY Z AND HE’S IS NOT THE DEVIL. KAN YE WEST IS THE RULER OF THE GAME NOW! NOT JAY AND NOT WEEZY- KNAYE

    • kim

      Jay-Z didn’t disrespect Hammer he just stated facts about him in a song….N Kanye didn’t reinvent Jay Jay is the reason why Kanye even got a deal…Clearly u dnt listen to the music or facts u get ur opinions from the tabloids…

  • Kay

    Some not so Christian lyrics in this

  • Miss Talk

    Feud hip hop songs are so 1999, Mr Hammer.
    As well as every single rapper who grew up in the 90′s owes something to 2 Pac because of his legacy (50 Cent’s words), the same rapper owes something to MC Hammer who became the perfect example of how you can be a pioneer in hip hop, earn a diamond certification then blow up $30 millions and file for bankrupcy all in 5 years. This is why those rappers develop all those business ventures, Jay Z being the most successful of the pack. Mc Hammer could have just acked some royalties, I’m sure Jay-Z would have thrown some millions to him or maybe got him a Roc Nation contract LOL

    • kim

      IKR…..They need to do they research about Jay b4 speaking on the man n his accomplishments or lack there of!!!!

  • Ty

    so awful

  • Wow

    @KOMPLEXXX Must be Mc hammer! LOL Anyway Mc Hammer, aka King Hammer, aka Mr. “Preacher,” you are way too old to be trying to beef with someone! You’re suppose to be preaching the good word but you trying to call out someone way bigger than you just to sell records? Why Jay Z out of everyone? I mean Rick Ross made a whole song about going broke like you, but you have yet to say anything about him… I think that you’re jealous of him, just sit down because you’re not getting anywhere with this whole “beef” thing mr. “preacher.”

    • kim

      Lmao…..rite!!

    • deric g.

      you are so rite!!!!!!!

      • celz

        Kim? Deric? Rite is spelled “right.” Retards.

  • cheebahawk

    BEWARE THE FALSE PROPHET!!!

  • hmmmm

    1.I thought calling someone a devil worshiper is a huge sin. Not saying that he isnt but I can’t label him, that’s God’s job. 2. I didn’t see Hammer speak in God or Jesus’ name. In fact, he called himself King Hammer..no glory to God 3. why would you wear a baphomet t-shirt if you are on the opposing team?..the blurry fade out gave it away 4. A real ambassador for Christ would be more strategic, not just hilarious with a catchy beat & halfhearted jabs that were nothing new to the table. The attempt left people talking about everything but what Hammer says he was trying to do. No exposure of Jay-Z. Never was a Jay fan because he is blatantly disrespectful and has a convenient reason for all his accusations. The Bible says you shall know them by the fruits they bear. Pick up the word and read if for yourself. Its about relationship. Not religion. Don’t let people tell you what to read, think, or believe. They will only confuse you. I challenge you to think deeper then all this. Be still and watch and listen.

    • Phillies Blaze

      no ur incorrect why do people always make statements like that before they check the facts older people always use to say u shouldnt tell people thier going to hell cause than you will go but see im going make it real easy for you pick up a bible read your TEN comandments and wallah u no whats a sin and whats not…
