Jay Z. has stated in a recent interview that he meant no disrespect to Hammer when he metaphorically used Hammmer's past financial woes as a punch line in his verse on Kanye's "So Appalled"...........According to Jay, Hammer misinterpreted the lyrics and said there was no intentional disrespect directed at him.

On the Kanye West "So Appalled" collaboration, Jay comments on Hammer's fall from fame and publicized bankruptcy despite being a platinum-selling artist in the early 1990's.

I didn't know that wasn't on the table for discussion," Jay laughingly told DJ Semtex. "I didn't know I was the first person to ever say that? Am I? [laughs] I'm not, am I? I know I've heard that before, I didn't think I was the first one to say it. I guess, you know when I say things, I think people believe me so much that they take it a different way. It's not rap anymore at that point. I didn't mean it. I said some great things about him in the [Decoded] book that I have coming out -- he's gonna be like, embarrassed. I said some really great things about him in the book and about people's perception of him and how he's from East Oakland. It is what it is. He took it the wrong way. I didn't know I said anything wrong. I don't know if I said a lie." (DJ Semtex)
