Hip Hop, Song

New Music: Kanye West & Jay-Z > H.A.M.

Song: H.A.M.
Artist: Kanye West & Jay-Z
Album: Watch the Throne
Producer: Lex Luger
Label: Def Jam
Genre: Hip Hop
Notes: First single from 1st collaborative LP
Nah Right

Real disappointed with this one, given all the buildup. Lex Luger’s operatic southern beat doesn’t fit either man’s style (though it does go ham), and both Jay & Ye’s verses suffer as a result. I’m sure that Watch the Throne will have some great stuff, but I can’t see this joint being anything more than a speaker-banger to hold us over until the full album drops.
Concept: 2.5 • Beat: 3.5 • Lyrics: 3.5 • Chorus: 2.5 • X Factor: 4.5
Overall: 3.3 (66%)
