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 he is going
at. But Hov 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.
“Hammer went broke so you know I'm more focused. 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
"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.
