Rap mogul Jay Z took to the airwaves to briefly respond to the recent disrespect that was shown to him by the 80’s come back kid rapper MC Hammer. While JayZ didn’t believe a response was necessary he made it a point to mention that he really likes the “Can’t Touch This” rapper while promoting his upcoming book.  His response was actually pretty comical. Don’t know if Hammer was expecting this type of response but we guess it is what it is. Check out the video below:

The video for “Better Run Run,” released Monday, accuses Jay-Z of being an impostor and stealing Hammer’s “swagger.” 

The video by the “U Can’t Touch This” rapper also shows a man impersonating Jay-Z — in a white T-shirt and a Yankees cap — running from a Devil-like figure.

“I can see it in his eyes, the boy sold his soul. Devil said, ‘I’mma give you the world.’ I’d take it, plus give me a girl,” the rapper says in a sly reference to Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé Knowles.

What’s behind the beef between the ’80s icon and the superstar? Apparently, some remarks by Jay-Z in a new Kanye West song, “So Appalled.”

“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,” Jay-Z rapped about Hammer’s money woes.
