Nicki Minaj’s appearance on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is an undeniable star turn on a record that can sometimes feel like a big-budget action flick, overflowing with famous faces and shiny machinery competing for your attention.
She appears on “Monster” in a cartoonish flash of violence, ripping her collaborators on the track to shreds and offering what is easily the most memorable verse on the album. (Rick Ross on “Devil in a New Dress” is the only one who comes close.) And to hear Nicki tell it, “Monster” almost didn’t make it onto the album that many consider to be his opus.
