“Go ham” or “Go ham and cheese” (go hard)

"Go ham” is a rap expression that has been printed on posters and T-shirts. Gucci Mane - Go Ham On Em was uploaded on YouTube on February 19, 2008, and Soulja Boy - Go Ham On Em was uploaded on YouTube on June 11, 2008. “Ham” is a backronym (back acronym) for “Hard As a Motherfucker.”

“The Girls Go Ham And Cheese For That One Joc!!!!” was cited on Twitter on May 20, 2009. “Go ham and cheese” might simply be an extension for “go ham,” but a Rap Genius definition of “cheese” is “a mixture of Black Tar Heroin and crushed Tylenol PM tablets.” “Go ham and cheese” was the Urban Dictionary‘s “Word of the Day” on October 19, 2015.

Redfoo going ‘ham and cheese’ for X Factor
As X Factor auditions kick off in New Zealand, Rachel Bache chats to Redfoo, the wild-haired, party-loving judge on Australia’s version of the reality talent show.

TimeOut: You were just in New Zealand for a DJ set. What do you love about DJing?

Redfoo: With the DJ set, I’ve really been able to make it my own thing, because I’m the commander of throwing this party. I play mostly EDM and remixes, I play my stuff, I play LMFAO stuff and the difference is that I perform most of the songs. I run around from the DJ booth and I’ve got my dance crew and we just party rock. I jump in the crowd, I pull people up from the crowd and I just go ham and cheese.
