#13. Jay-Z & Kanye West "H.A.M."
Producer: Lex Luger, Kanye West
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Roc Nation/Def Jam
Complex says: When “H.A.M.” dropped in early 2011, expectations were sky high. Half a year later, we’re still bumping “H.A.M.” We can hardly wait to hear ‘Ye and Jay’s highly anticipated Watch The Throne album on August 2, but thankfully the two legends picked a great track to hold us over. With Kanye in a boastful mood and Jay contributing a standout verse—including the controversial “Baby money” line as well as reflections about his uncle’s death—Lex Luger combines his street oriented sound with Kanye's operatic samples for an incredible movie-score-like backdrop.
