OAKLAND — U can’t touch this! “Inside The Industry” released the documentary of Grammy-winning rapper MC Hammer who, despite his mainstream success and family-friendly image, was ruthless behind closed doors. See, we all assumed Hammer was “Charmin” soft because he did his choreography in parachute pants. But those in the industry knew better. LaMarr “Deuce” Lubin called Hammer the “most gangsta one of ’em all.” Mo’ gangsta than Suge Knight and Eazy-E. Redman is a witness. The “Funkorama” artist said Hammer threatened to kill him for talkin’ sh*t in a rap song. “That goddamn MC Hammer [was] very serious about beef,” Redman recalled. “Y’all mothaf*ckas laugh and joke about Hammer. No, no, no, no. That n*gga was deep about beef. ‘Oh, you gone talk about my dancing pants? I see you.’ And he would whoop a n*gga out.”
Hammer, who once served in the U.S. Navy, confronted Ice Cube too.
Neither altercation went public to safeguard the Oakland native’s squeaky-clean persona.
A close source said when drawing a juxtaposition between Eazy and Hammer, there’s not much dissimilarity. Both were from the hood. Both were street-savvy. Both were entrepreneurs with the key difference being how they presented themselves to the world.
While Eazy’s approach was blunt and unapologetic, Hammer opted for a more ubiquitous appeal which often led to his machismo being questioned. His flashy style and cynosure on positivity were in stark contrast to the often violent and misogynistic themes prevalent in Eazy’s music. Bottom line is Hammer hoodwinked us. He bullied music execs during negotiations. He took no sh*t.
Hammer gained street cred from Suge’s fat ass and that’s saying something. We all know the “Death Row” honcho hates everybody and respects no one. Suge once dangled Vanilla Ice upside-down from a hotel balcony and threatened to drop his ass if they didn’t agree to contractual terms. There’s also scuttlebutt the 300-pounder is complicit in the deaths of Eazy and Tupac Shakur.
The fact that Suge harbors trepidation when it comes to Hammer speaks volumes.
Anyway, watch the explosive documentary.
