Released for free, the track has already been downloaded by countless thousand rap fans. Among them as MC Hammer who took issue with Jay-Z’s slight against him on the RZA produced track.

After losing his rap career MC Hammer became a preacher, but it seems that the man of God was enraged by Jay-Z’s put down. Opening up his Twitter page, the comedy rapper blasted the hip hop titan.

“You wanted my attention #HellBoy (Jigga), you got it,” MC Hammer wrote on Saturday. “Let me mess you up.”

Fans of Jay-Z hit back at MC Hammer, who said simply: “Laughing at these grown men coming on my timeline with they pom-poms waving for #HellBoy … These lil demons and imps stopping by (my) timeline today – Yes, I dissed yo daddy.”

As an early adopter of Twitter, MC Hammer has far more followers than both Jay-Z and Kanye West. Promising his revenge in song form, the rapper wrote: “The answer to Jay comes on Oct 31. “I saw him coming.”

Oh dear.
