IRS Reportedly Still Seeking $1.4 Million From MC Hammer


(AllHipHop News) At one point MC Hammer was one of the biggest music stars on the planet. His 1990 album Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em spawned the megahit “U Can’t Touch This,” and the LP has gone nearly double diamond. A quarter century later, Hammer is now just as famous for his financial collapse as he is for his oversized pants and typewriter dance.

Hammer filed for bankruptcy in 1996, and it seemed the Oakland native’s problems with the IRS were settled in 2007 when he paid off a $1.4 million debt to the government. But reports began to circulate in late 2013 that Hammer still owed $798,033 in back taxes, and TMZ is now reporting Uncle Sam is still looking for even more funds from Hammer.

According to the site, the IRS is seeking $1.4 million from Hammer for penalties and interest on the ’96 tax delinquency. Hammer has apparently filed legal documents asking a judge to block the IRS’ attempt to collect the money.

      IRS like to let your shit piles up, then attack u with massive sums. Did Redd Foxx like that too tho part of it was Redd Fault too.

    Stupid Bama. “Pumps in a Bump.” They all end up the same way. Start their careers bashing NY then become a walking punchline. This shit is a marathon not a sprint. You may come out the gate looking strong but you gotta long way to go…. LOSERS.

    Nothing is shocking with this guy’s financial problems. It was well documented how he blew money in the zenith of his career. He had 300 people on payroll, spent a sum of $20 million on renovations and improvements for a house in ghetto ass Oakland, then got it foreclosed for like $1 million after it was deemed the original value minus the overspent improvements on it.

    I recall Keenen Ivory Wayans had a monologue on the first episode of his shitty ass talk show in 1997 about MC Hammer’s financial problems, it went something like this: “I been off TV for a few years, MC Hammer went broke, I mean how many genie pants did he have to buy? He spent $20 million on a house in Oakland? For $20 million, I would have bought all of Oakland!”

      Get your facts straight though homie. Hammer did not spent $20M on a house in Oakland, he bought a mansion in Fremont CA, for $10M then he added custom features that cost him another $10M, then his flunky ass purchased a fucken Helicopter for the O.P.D which he emphatically denies.
      he’s a FULL BLOWN IDIOT.

      • therealest1

        No, I know that homie. I’m aware he didn’t initially pay $20 million out of the gate for the house, he just spent a lot of features and improvements which totaled it out to $20M in the end. What a waste though, I heard the foreclosed house resold for like $1 million!

        And what about O.P.D.? Is that Oakland police? If so, why would he buy a helicopter for them when they already get funded buy local government and tax dollars?

      • The Black Fist

        O.P.D = Oakland Police Department. yeah he purchased a damn Helicopter for them, why??? the same reason he blew
        $30M less in 3yrs. Stupidity!! plain & simple no other way to describe his foul judgment

  • Brick Soulja

    I remember that dummy purchased a mega mansion in Arizona with heated floors lol

    • therealest1

      Add that to the list of a litany of financial disasters and idiocy on MC Hammer’s end. Oh yeah, don’t forget, that idiot actually owned racehorses!

      • Brick Soulja

        Way too much to keep up with lol
