Kanye West & Jay-Z - H.A.M.

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Lex Luger
Album:
Watch the Throne

When an actor gets really into a performance, he or she is often said to be “hamming it up.” Although the title of the first official release off Kanye West & Jay-Z‘s forthcoming collaborative set is actually a reference to the fact that the collaborators go as “Hard as A Motherf*cker,” the “over-the-top” connotation is appropriate – in the category of epic lead singles, this one ranks right up there with Power. Lex Luger mans the mixing board here, serving up a banging arpeggiated-synth groove as ‘Ye and Hove demonstrate precisely why they’re considered two of the game’s heaviest hitters, dropping line after line of larger-than-life braggadocio and trash talk. But that’s not all – not by a long shot. After building to a choral climax of Carmina Burana-esque proportions, the record segues into a stirring, piano-accompanied operatic duet before rocketing into its crashing finale. So, as Bill Shakespeare might ask, what does all this sound and fury signify? And, perhaps more importantly, is the end result dope? We report, you decide. Watch the Throne is tentatively scheduled for a March 1 release, which means we’ve got at least a couple more singles on the way. Keep it locked.
