MC Hammer, Celebrity Scandal, tax charges

MC Hammer doesn't give in to a bully…even if it's the U.S. government. The rap superstar responded to a lawsuit filed against him by the IRS asking for $779,585 in back taxes by fighting back in federal court.

Hammer filed a response to the suit claiming he already paid his debt, and is asking the court to grant him a judgment to recoup his legal fees, reports TMZ. No word on whether the court has granted his wish, but props to Hammer for standing up to the IRS.

Hear that, Uncle Sam? U can't touch this.
