It seems Jay-Z found MC Hammer‘s diss track “Better Run Run” as funny, as, well…everyone else.

Speaking to DJ Semtex, Jay said through a chuckle, “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…I’m not, am I?”

Jay went on to say that the line in “So Appalled” wasn’t meant to cause offence to Hammer, and that he says “some great things about [Hammer]” in his forthcoming book, Decoded. He also confirms that he has no plans to uh…retaliate on wax.

Jay-Z’s full interview with DJ Semtex will air in full on BBC 1Xtra this Friday, 10pm GMT.
