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 Hov is going at. But he 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.

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, repyling to Jay on Twitter and on film by releasing a video showing him hitting a punching bag

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 satanis

Hammer became famous and wildly popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s with songs like “U Can’t Touch This.

He made millions, and then lost most of it due to bad investments and lavish spending that included a $12 million dollar crib. So that Jigga line has got him feeling like he’s gotta fight back….literally.

This is a strange beef. Check out Hammer, who recently became an MMA promoter, going at his punching bag (Jigga) in the video below.

Jay-Z releasing his first offical book “Decoded”

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 23, 2010

Jay-Z is making his latest entrepreneurial move in the world of publishing, with the upcoming release of his first official book Decoded. Shawn Carter is teaming up with publisher Spiegel & Grau to release the tome, which provides insight into the lyrics and life of the man from Marcy Projects.

 The book, boasting an inkblot from Andy Warhol’s Rorschach on its cover, tells the intimate stories behind 36 of Hov’s songs, with plans to release the book on November 16 as an eBook and an iPhone/iPad app that offers exclusive video and customizable content.

“When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things,” explained Jay-Z in a statement. “The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics—not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC—are poetry if you look at them closely enough.

“The second was I wanted the book to tell a little bit of the story of my generation, to show the context for the choices we made at a violent and chaotic crossroads in recent history. And the third piece was that I wanted the book to show how hip-hop created a way to take a very specific and powerful experience and turn it into a story that everyone in the world could feel and relate to.”
