MP3: Kanye West and Jay-Z's "H.A.M" Is Hard as a Mutha

The good things about Kanye West's and Jay-Z's initial collaboration from joint album Watch the Throne: It's futuristic, it can go on your mixtape between "General Patton" (thanks, Rob) and that Mobb Deep song ripping off Thomas Dolby, and there's this intensity about it different from anything these two guys have done as a solo project. Small quibble: "H.A.M" stands for "hard as a muthafucka," and we were hoping for "high and mighty" or "Hardee's assistant manager" or something.

Where might you find this song and decide for yourselves about its relative merits and just wake the hell up already today? Facebook, of course. You gotta "Like" it to listen to it -- and you probably will.
