MC Hammer has been sued by the IRS for failing to pay nearly $800,000 in back taxes. TMZ reports that the rapper--real name Stanley K. Burrell--was sued along with his wife Stephanie over $798,033.48 of unpaid taxes in 1996 and 1997.
While Hammer's music career was well off what it used to be at that point, he did release a greatest hits album in 1996 which sold well. Everything Hammer's LLC makes from now on goes directly to the U.S. treasury to pay off his debt.
