MC Hammer wants people to know some things about him. First of all, he’s a staunch Christian that doesn’t take light anybody taking shots at it. He also wants people know that he’s more than a rapper that sold a bunch of record, made millions and lost it in a bankruptcy.
In the midst of his squabble with Jay-Z, Hammer was meeting with Tony Blair (the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom), Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and Michael Arrington of acclaimed blog TechCrunch. These may or may not be significant to some people, but it does speak volumes to Hammer’s penetration into a world with no apparent relation to Hip-Hop.
In this exclusive interview, MC Hammer explains why he responded to Jay-Z with “Better Run Run,” the new video that depicts the Devil chasing the Roc Nation mogul. He also chronicles in detail why he didn’t appreciate Jay-Z’s verse on Kanye West’s “So Appalled” and he retort to his naysayers. And lastly why, despite Jay’s repeated denial, he feels his counterpart “romances the Devil.”
