50 year old MC Hammer dusted off his hammerpants, ironed on a tuxedo stripe, grabbed a workout headband and busted a move on the American Music Awards last night with Korean YouTube sensation, PSY. Didya miss it? We got you (well, ‘til ABC and the ghost of Dick Clark yank it).
Get you some Hammer Gangnam Style. Jump to 2:55 if you can’t understand what that dude is saying.
All I needed was B Angie B to descend from the ceiling like Pink in a Cirque du Soleil harness.

Here’s the full video version of Hammer’s diss record, “Better Run Run,” aimed at Jay-Z. This guy’s “sell by” date was a couple of decades ago but he’s still trying…
So far, Jay-Z hasn’t replied to Hammer’s constant talking. All this stems from Jay putting a line about Hammer’s unfortunate money decisions in one of his raps. Even Hammer has joked about it… remember the Nationwide Insurance and Cash 4 Gold commercials?
One person who did fire shots at Hammer was music critic/writer Toure. If Toure can eat you up on Twitter… you might as well rock a “WACK” stamp on your forehead. Taste The Brew to read his tweets
Hammer is really taking this Jay-Z beef to heart. Hammer is p.o.’d because Jay dropped his name in a rhyme in Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Friday track, “So Appalled.” In the song, Jay says “…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.”
Welllll (*Antoine Dodson voice*), that didn’t sit too well with Mr. Pumps And A Bump who went on an anti-Jigga Twitter rant last month, calling Jay “Hell Boy.” Hammer now plans to drop a diss record called “Better Run Run!” The song drops October 31st. Hammer must be pretty serious about this Hell Boy thing because he’s taken up the art of YouTubery and now has a teaser running to promote the song.
Clearly, Stanley Burrell has bought into all the Illuminati talk. But, something tells me he don’t want it with Hov. So, are YOU checkin’ for “King Hammer’s” diss track?
MC Hammer is getting in on the World Cup action. Hammer is featured in Castle Lite’s new ad featuring the rapper and his hit “You Can’t Touch This” (which, this Witch knew all the moves to and had some Hammer pants…OWWW!).
The commercial was filmed in Johannesburg in April.
