HAM(3)

acronym; adjective
Hard as a Motherfucker
 
This acronym comes from the album “Watch the Throne,” by Jay-Z and Kanye West. In fact, one of the songs on the album is actually titled HAM. Interestingly enough, the acronym serves little purpose within the song, as, whenever the term appears in the song, it is defined and stated in full form immediately following its usage: “I’m about to go HAM, Hard As a Motherfucker…” This implies that the acronym was deemed insufficient as a standalone term by the artists, and its use was mostly likely relegated to maintaining the tempo and rhyme structure of the song.
Etymology : HAM was formed as an acronym of the phrase Hard as A Motherfucker
Source : “See I’m ‘bout to go HAM, hard as a motherfucker let these ladies know who I am” (song: “HAM” by Jay-Z and Kanye West; 1/11/2011)
