The much-anticipated collabo between Jay-Z and Kanye West, “H.A.M.” (short for “Hard As a [expletive]”) hit the Internet this morning and it does not disappoint.
Over a hard-hitting backdrop of thunderous beats and sampled operatic flourishes, 'Ye and Jay rhyme about their relative awesomeness and how they can kick it up to the next level when they “go H.A.M.”
“I swam waters with great whites/Y'all [expletive] woulda been chewed/I hustle with vultures late night/Y'all [expletive] woulda been fooled,” rhymes Jay, who then gets rolling.
“H.A.M.” is the first single from the forthcoming “Watch the Throne,” which was supposedly being released this week, but is now expected in March – maybe around the same time Britney Spears' album, which features her single “Hold It Against Me,” which debuted yesterday.
If that link goes down, it's streaming at the "Watch the Throne" Facebook page.
