Are you kidding me, Kanye? You have got to be pulling my leg here.
Kanye West unleashed this "Monster" on his blog over the weekend as part of G.O.O.D. Fridays and I'm pretty sure a line has been crossed somewhere. Forget not knowing that this much epic could ever exist in one track — this much epic shouldn't exist in one track, it just makes everything else sound like a bag of crap. And you can take that to the bank In fact, take Nicki Minaj with you; she murdered the track and delivered hands-down the best verse of her short career. Hear and download "Monster" below:
According to Kanye, "Monster" is off an upcoming five-track "album" he and Jay-Z are "bout to drop" called Watch The Throne. Let's skip the surprise and shock and questions about the fifth full-length LP we've been expecting from Kanye and just go along with it, shall we?
PS: What did he do to Bon Iver/Justin Vernon's voice? It sort of sounds like Kid Cudi or Dwele in some parts. I was so ready for some Skinny Loving...
