Kanye West f. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver & Nicki Minaj, “Monster”


Wait, Bon Iver isn’t rapping on this? Vernon, where’s your hot 16! No matter. Four former FADER cover stars and New York’s new Sinatra all trying to outdo each other on one track means we all win—though if we had to pick a star on this one, it’d be Nicki, who slithers in from the cut and completely murks everybody. You could be the king but watch the queen conquer. Minaj is New York’s new Minelli, maybe? This is from Kanye’s forthcoming album with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne, which is not a joke even though he tweeted it shortly after Nicki and Drake’s marriage prank.

    almost could have been great, but there are just too many things going on in this track. nicki minaj has to go away.. jay-z kills it tho.

  2. kc-trunk-bumper says:

    i agree ^^^^^

  3. artois says:

    Don’t like the production at all. Sounds messy. Not coherent or cohesive sounding. Jay sounds cool as usual.

  4. Rex Gatling says:

    Halloween came early this shit is scary good fat mutherfuckers!

    I hope Nicki Minaj drops a triple album before christmas

    I wonder if KayneUniversity offers walk on swallowships, probably.

  6. Sir Indie says:

    I’m digging the track (though Nicki and her deep voice urks me a bit..).

    I’d bump it every now and again.


  7. Michael says:

    Merks, not Murks. Get that shit right.

  8. Paul says:

    Whoever loves Jay-Z on this track must luuuv LL cool J cuz he sounds just like him on this. I think Nicki’s the best thing on this joint, she’s crazy, and i love it!!
