If you thought MC Hammer, or King Hammer as he’s apparently calling himself now, was trading in his music career to solely focus on running his MMA management firm, Alchemist Management, you thought wrong. Turns out he’s just going to mix the two. Check out Brendan Schaub, Nate Marquardt and Elliot Marshall in Hammer’s new video, “Better Run Run.” Judging by the comments on YouTube it’s not going to be the song that puts Hammer back on the map.

Update: So apparently there’s a whole back story to this video I was completely unaware of that I guess explains why it was made.

MC Hammer’s (or King Hammer’s) new video features Nate Marquardt, Trevor Wittman, Brendan Schaub and Eliot Marshal. The new single was inspired by Jay-Z’s verse on Kanye West’s “So Appalled” that referenced Hammer’s money troubles. Apparently Hammer felt the need to respond, and chose to do so by accusing Jay-Z of selling his soul to the devil.

It’s the Grudge vs. the Roc.
