M.C. Hammer has filed papers in appeals court against a ruling that awards the I.R.S. nearly $800,000 in back taxes, saying that he had already resolved the issue.

The 90s trend-setter, whose real name is Stanley Kirk Burrell, was sued three years ago by the I.R.S. with his wife Stephanie, claiming he was in the red to the tune of $798,033.48 for back taxes in the years 1996 and 1997.

The judgment was upheld by a judge Dec. 3, with a stipulation that all of the “Pray” rapper’s future royalties be forwarded to the government until the debt. is settled, leading the 51-year-old “U Can’t Touch This” rapper to head to appeals court. There he stated in court docs that the previous ruling should be voided, as he had settled the red ink vis a vis the terms of a bankruptcy agreement.

In court docs, the rapper’s lawyers asked if officials might have made an error in considering details of the previous agreement.
