A$AP Ferg and Skrillex Cook Up ‘Hungry Ham’ on Riotous Jam
The song pays tribute to Ferg's Harlem neighborhood
Because it turned out pretty well the first time a member of A$AP Mob hooked up with Skrillex for a single, A$AP Ferg has borrowed the bespectacled beat-dropper for his new jam, “Hungry Ham.” The title refers to the Hamilton Heights block in Harlem, where Ferg grew up, and he spends most of the track reminiscing about bittersweet early neighborhood memories (“Seen my nigga’s family members bugging off the crack / Your uncle smell like s**t like he got garbage in his ass”) over Sonny Moore’s squelching rhythms. Frequent collaborator Crystal Caines helps out on the hook.
There’s even an old-school, Newcleus chipmunk-voice exchange on the bridge. Listen here.
