As Kanye West and Jay-Z's new "H.A.M." track circulates online, SOHH reached out to our Twitter readers to get their reaction to the Watch the Throne single.

Some readers felt 'Ye and Jay served up a bonafide banger.

Despite a few co-signs, a majority of SOHH followers were disappointed by the single.

"@sohhdotcom well doggy they could've come way harder than that. This song does not make me wanna purchase the album but I will #Limewire it" (daRealFelicia's Twitter)
"@sohhdotcom #HAM is another failed attempt at Kanye and Jay trying to go beyond hip hop and just making more noisy overrated sh*t Stans love." (PopCity85's Twitter)

Other readers felt the song's release was untimely, as the sound invoked a summertime sentiment.

"@sohhdotcom Not exactly the track needed to hold on to that throne." (dizturbdwun's Twitter)

While making note of the song's lackluster appeal, some readers felt the song was only a teaser of what is yet to come from the rap heavyweight duo.

"@sohhdotcom Its an okay song..nothing special Jay's verse is witty and rich as usual..As a Kanye West and Jay-Z fan I expected a bit more.." (Mrfre_D's Twitter)
