Jay-Z Said MC Hammer Would Be Embarrassed Reading His Book

is convinced will be highly "embarrassed" when he reads the rap mogul's new book - because the "Big Pimpin'" hitmaker has lavished praise on the faded hip-hop star. The music veteran pokes fun at Jay-Z in his video for new single "Better Run Run", which features a lookalike of the rapper running away from a devil-like creature, while the song's lyrics label him as an "impostor" who has stolen Hammer's "swagger".

The rapper is said to have made the promo in response to Jay-Z's mention of him in a new song with called "So Appalled", which mentions Hammer's previous money problems. But Jay-Z has brushed off the slight, insisting Hammer took his lyrics "the wrong way" and will be pleasantly surprised when he gets a copy of the star's new book "Decoded".

He tells BBC 1Xtra, "I guess when I say things people believe me so much that they take it a different way, it's not rap any more at that point. Now it's like it's a personal attack... He's gonna be embarrassed."

"I said some really great things about him in the book and about people's perception of him. I said really great things about him. But, whatever, it is what it is. He took it the wrong way, I didn't know it wasn't on the table for discussion. I didn't know I said anything wrong. I don't know if I said a lie."
