Since mapr handles compression at the file system level, should I disable it for use in hbase?

Depends on the data you're storing in hbase (LZO, bzip or MapR's might work better in different situations). I'd suggest use your code as is, ie, if you are already using LZO, go ahead and use it and turn off MapR's compression.

You can turn off compression for a given directory tree using the hadoop mfs command: http://www.mapr.com/doc/display/MapR/Hadoop+MFS
