MC Hammer was arrested in Northern California on Thursday for allegedly obstructing an officer, CNN reports.
The rapper made the arrest known on Saturday with a series of tweets suggesting that he was a victim of racial profiling.
Hammer (who was born Stanley Kirk Burrell) was reportedly sitting in a car outside a shopping center in Dublin, a city east of Oakland, when he was approached by a police officer. “Chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said ‘Are you on parole or probation?'”
“While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet…. It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!! But make no mistake he’s dangerous …. only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh.”
According to the Dublin Police, Hammer was in a vehicle with expired registration, and he was not the registered owner. “After asking Hammer who the registered owner was he became very argumentative and refused to answer the officer’s questions,” police spokesman Herb Walters told CNN. Hammer was arrested on suspicion of resisting an officer and obstructing an officer in the performance of his duties; he was booked and released on bail from Santa Rita Jail, with a court date set for next month.
Hammer concluded his tweeted account of the incident by describing it as a “teachable moment” and an “eye opener.” “I will now answer his question,” he wrote. “contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy!!!”
Hammer tell you are “2 Legit 2 quit”!
How many people fight the government when they are on your head about owing them paper??Well MC Hammer is one of those people….
The government filed a lawsuit against Hammer and his wife to get the $779,585 it claimed he owed in back taxes.
Hammer isn’t even thinking about pulling out his check book… he filed a response in federal court this week claiming he settled that debt already. In fact, he’s asking the court to grant him a judgement to recoup his legal fees.
That’s right Hammer tell them fool’s “U can’t touch this”…
In case you forgot about Hammer’s song Pop the hood on this old school video..
MC Hammer, who has done everything from breed horses to manage MMA fighters, made an announcement at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco that he wants to boldly go where no search engine has gone before.
WireDoo is the result of two years of research into what Google is supposedly not doing right. Hammer and his team claim that WireDoo is “about relationships beyond just the keywords.” So when you do your searches for those Amber Rose nude pics (we KNOW you’re doing) it won’t just show you the pics, it’ll show you about Amber Rose’s hairstyle tips, shoe fetishes and other things, but nothing about roses or amber alerts for missing kids.
WireDoo is still in development so we have to wait and see if it does what he claims.

Jigga Jay-Z recently addressed MC Hammer’s latest diss video in an interview with DJ Semtex. He said that he didn’t know he said anything wrong when he referenced Hammer losing 30 million during his verse on Kanye’s “So Appalled” record:
I didn’t know that wasn’t on the table for discussion. I didn’t know I was the first person to ever say that. Am I? I know I’ve heard that before. I know I’m not the first person to say that. When I say things I believe people believe me so much that they take it a different way. It’s not rap anymore at that point. It’s a personal attack. I didn’t mean it.
I said some great things about him in the book I have coming out. He’s gonna be embarrassed.
I said some really great things about him in the book and people’s perception of him…
…I didn’t know I said anything wrong…
Pop the hood to listen to the interview:
MC Hammer has done what he said he was going to do. This morning he released a Jay-Z diss track and video titled “Better Run Run”. The one-sided beef started a month ago when MC Hammer heard Jay-Z’s verse on Kanye’s record “So Appalled”. On the track, Jay-z raps “Hammer went broke so you know I’m all focused / I lost 30 mill so I spent another 30 / ‘Cause unlike Hammer / 30 million can’t hurt me.”
MC Hammer was offended and immediately posted a string of tweets to his twitter account, threatening Jay-z and referring to him as “Hell Boy”.
