Kanye West’s latest G.O.O.D. Friday track to drop, “So Appalled,” made one person appalled by the lyrics of one of the featured guests.
On the track, which features Swizz Beatz, the RZA and Jay-Z, Hova spits a line which targets MC Hammer for his fall from grace in the 1990s, which left him in a financial disaster.
On the track Jay spits: “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.”
After the track hit the Web, Hammer left off a series of tweets (@MCHammer), blasting the hip-hop heavyweight for the disrespectful bars.
On Friday night (September 24), when a fan asked Hammer if he had any comment about Jay’s rhyme, the Bay Area star replied: “The Answer to Jay comes on Oct 31 ( Devils Nite) ..I saw him coming.”
Then, Hammer replied directly to Kanye West (@KanyeWest) the next morning, with “@ kanyewest jay-hoe aka #HellBoy Tell Jay Oct 31 (Devils Nite). We’ll see if this record and video ‘Hurt’s Him.’ ”
Hammer continued adding: “You wanted my attention #HellBoy (Jigga) ..you got it,” attaching a link to a 36-second video of himself pummeling a punching bag.
Before wrapping up his tweets aimed at Jay, he reminded his Twitter followers that he was readying a response for Halloween
“I’m done until it’s time … Oct 31,” Hammer wrote. “See, no need for such nastiness. I’m going back to the baggy pants that keeps you off guard. :)”
