According to the unquestionable TMZ, it seems Stanley Kirk Burrell, aka M.C. Hammer, is being sued by the federal government for $798,033.48 in unpaid taxes. 

Hammer and his wife Stephanie apparently failed to file income tax claims in 1996 and 1997, and until the tab is paid, everything they earn through his LLC (Limited Liability Company) will go directly to the U.S. treasury. 

The last time Hammer dropped a project was a greatest hits album in 1996. Here's hoping he makes it out of this okay.
