According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dre and Cube have filed court papers demanding they be released from a lawsuit over the incident which occurred in Compton during the movie’s filming. Knight, who has been arrested, ran over one of the film’s technical advisers, Cle “Bone” Sloan, and Compton businessman, Terry Carter, with his pickup truck. Carter passed away following the incident.

We didn’t know if Jay-Z would respond to Hammer publicly known diss video, “Better Run Run” released Nov.1st . But he has made a small attempt to give the video and its producer (Hammer) a response.
Jay-Z mentioned in a British radio interview (from NY Daily News) that: “I didn’t know that [topic] wasn’t on the table for discussion.” He says he only had very nice things to say about the legend MC Hammer and tells that story in his upcoming book, ‘Decoded’ to be released Nov. 16th.
MC Hammer vowed to get back at Jay-Z for making mockery of his downfall in the music industry. It’s old news that MC Hammer was one of the biggest rappers/entertainers from Oakland, California in the late 80’s. He lost it all to bankruptcy when he mismanaged his money by keeping a hefty staff and giving money away to friends and family.
Well, it was said all over the internet that Hammer did not appreciate Jay-Z’s comments in a Kanye West track “So Appalled,” about his misfortune saying “Hammer went broke so you know I’m more focused. I lost $30 million so I spent another 30, ’cause unlike Hammer $30 million can’t hurt me.”
