Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘H.A.M’ Song Drops

The ultimate collaboration of current rap royalty is here, as Kanye West and Jay-Z have unveiled their first single from Watch the Throne, which they’re dubbing “H.A.M.”

What might “H.A.M.” stand for? No, it’s not a porky cut of meat you likely ate at Aunt Lucy’s house over the holidays. When Kanye and Jay-Z are involved, the acronym means “hard as a mother——-.”

The tune is complete with Roman-style chants, piano solos and all sorts of Kanye-fueled theatrics and grandeur that made his last album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, one of the best-reviewed albums of the year.

There’s no word on when the full version of Watch the Throne will be gifted upon the world, but in the meantime, you can listen to the full track on the album’s Facebook page.
