Really "King" Hammer, are you really coming for HOV?
Now I know you did a double take when you read the title or you laughed (I mean a true LOL). If you are a true hip-hop lover not only did you LOL, you also SMH.
If you don't know who MC Hammer is, click here for a bit of hip-hop history.

However, it is quite clear that the target is Jay-Z...from the very bad look-a-like with the Yankee hat to playing up the internet rumors of Jay and his affiliations with the illuminati (another time). At some point, Hammer makes mention of Jay selling his sold to the devil...
