Have You Figured Out How Amazing "Monster" Is Yet?
Because it is.
"Monster" is so brilliant that it even manages to transcend the extreme stupidity of the lyric, "Have you ever had sex with a Pharaoh? Eguuuhhhhh I put the pussy in a sarcophagus." The rest of the Kanye verse is pretty cool, though. I get the impression he's in the midst of a total emotional breakdown these days, which is working really well for him. I hate when Kanye gets all glossy and fratty (fratty= like a frat boy). Speaking of emotional breakdowns, what the fuck is going on with Hov? I thought his scary breathey monster voice was just a gimmick employed to highlight the age/wisdom dichotomy of Jay vs. Drake in "Light Up," but apparently not. Apparently Jay-Z just sounds like a dragon all the time now, and that's something I have to accept about him. But, no, I don't know. I don't know if I can do that. The part where he talks about how his Achilles heel is love? It makes me feel uncomfortable, and kind of pity Jay. Why am I pitying Jay-Z? Jay-Z is emotionally manipulating me. But that's just part of the impressiveness of "Monster." I'm down to be emotionally manipulated by Kanye and Jay. By the way, if Jay-Z and Kanye West were John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who would be who? Please help me figure this out.
But really the whole point of "Monster" is the Nicki Minaj verse, and everybody knows that. Nicki Minaj is a genius. I don't know anything about Rick Ross or Bon Iver, so I have no opinions about their contributions to this song. Nicki Minaj is my hero.
