While celebrating the iconic late rapper, MC Hammer went on to acknowledge his no-show at the hip-hop anniversary events despite being invited to all of them.

The clip got hip-hop fans talking about the criticism MC Hammer faced throughout his career from his hip-hop peers for his style of music along with the money woes he faced.

“I think there probably a lot of resentment left over from when he was on top and his peers were critical of him,” one fan wrote. “Some of it was fair but a lot unnecessary and hurtful. I think that’s probably the fake attitudes he’s talking about.”

“He was hiphop… no one could perform like him during that period,” added someone else.

The jeers and taunts from the hip-hop community could be a part of the “fakeness” MC Hammer is referring to.
