There is no shortage of head scratching squabbles in Hip Hop history, but MC Hammer going at Jay-Z may be the strangest. If anything, it was certainly unexpected. 

Earlier this week Jay-Z reacted to Hammer’s song “Better Run Run ,” and made it clear that he wasn’t taking a shot, nor would he respond with a song.

Just as he did to set this in motion, Hammer responded to Jay-Z’s words via Twitter.
