*MC Hammer is facing legal action from Uncle Sam after failing to stay pay back taxes from 1996 and 1997, reports TMZ.

The rapper, real name Stanley Burrell, famously filed for bankruptcy in 1996 after finding himself in $13 million of debt.

He has since overcome his money problems, but tax officials have filed suit against Hammer and his wife demanding all of his concert fees be sent directly to them to pay off the $779,585 he still owes, according to TMZ.
