“H.A.M.”, the first single from the Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration Watch The Throne surfaced earlier today. The idea of the two hip-hop giants making an album together sounds exciting, but if H.A.M. is any indication of what direction Watch The Throne will take count me out. Both rappers sound uninspired, the beat is sub-par, and what’s with the weird 80s synth in the background? The final half of the song contains violins, and a choir. Kanye, dude you already did similar things with better results on “Power”.
What do you think of “H.A.M.”?
