Hip Hop Mogul Jay-Z recently denied trying to start any beefs with MC Hammer despite makin ga reference to him in his new "So Appalled" track last month. According to Jigga, Hammer misinterpreted the lyrics and said there was no intential disrespect directed at him.
"I didn't know that wasn't on the table for discussion," Jay laughingly told DJ Semtex. "I didn't know I was the first person to ever say that? Am I? [laughs] I'm not, am I? I know I've heard that before, I didn't think I was the first one to say it. I guess, you know when I say things, I think people believe me so much that they take it a different way. It's not rap anymore at that point. I didn't mean it. I said some great things about him in the [Decoded] book that I have coming out — he's gonna be like, embarrassed. I said some really great things about him in the book and about people's perception of him and how he's from East Oakland. It is what it is. He took it the wrong way. I didn't know I said anything wrong. I don't know if I said a lie." (DJ Semtex)
