Kanye West On Nicki Minaj’s ‘Monster’ Verse: ‘It Was The Best Of All Time’

 Kanye West On Nicki Minajs Monster Verse: It Was The Best Of All Time

Commercial glory aside, Nicki Minaj’s lyrical skill and story telling abilities have seen her rise well above the realm of ‘Female Rap’ to become one of the most celebrated Rappers of all time.

Indeed, despite trying and failing numerous times to cite her aesthetic, financial backing and eccentricities as the root cause of her notoriety, her naysayers continue to find themselves faced with facts that point to the contrary.

Facts, that lie in her subtle use of ¬†metaphors, clear diction and versatility¬†. Facts, acknowledged by ‘Through the Wire’ lyricist Kanye West, who has named her verse on his 2010 cut ‘Monster’ the best Hip Hop verse of all time.

    Nicki only slays when she takes her time which is why PF is a classic and PFRR isn’t. Monster took her weeks to finish and it was worth it 2bh.

    Take your medication Rayner. The only other album from a female Rapper to discuss a wide range of issues was TM, which is obviously light years better than PF.

    Nicki spoke about everything on the album and did it all in a cohesive way. As much as I love Kim, she was never able to stay away from sex or violence.

    Has Kim ever done anything as deep as this?

    I’ve always said this but none of my friends ever agree. I love her Pop songs but her songs like HIA and CM is what made me love her because not a lot of people knew about her in Switzerland until PFRR was put out to the world so I was the only one in my class who knew about her.

It didnt get the promo and buzz that it needed like MONSTER did. She needs to pick her featured artist better. i love that chick down!!

    Hahaha!!.. Are people still singing it at verbatim like lil’ Kim’s Benjamin’s verse ( Like they were @ Power 105 Powerhouse?), Does Nicki has Pop stars like Ed sheeran throwing an acoustic version of her song ( like he did for Lighter’s up)… NO, Sam you were at Kim’s Concert , & you even tweeted it was TURN’D UP, but get on her it’s ANOTHER STORY!

    Now I have listened to MONSTER, it’s is not as memorable as Benjamins, it’s up there.. But asked anybody to rap a nicki verse you gonna get ” let’s go to the beach.. Each”, while u ask someone to rap lil Kim u gonna get ” wanna bumble with the bee huh”, or ” I used to be scared of the D” .

    I’m a barb, and Nic’s verse was definitely one of the best verses of the decade; but it wasn’t the best verse of all time. And that’s not what Kanye said, either. He said it was the best verse on the best hip-hop album of all time. And it was. Period. And what’s this talk of her verses not being memorable? DO y’all not see ALL of her Summer Jam appearances? The ENTIRE crowd is reciting her verses. And Powerhouse. And crowds overseas on her WORLD TOUR. I see no other female rappers managing a WORLD TOUR. Sorry. W/e verse people rap, they’re rapping Nicki anyway. And lbr, ain’t nobody REALLY reciting Kim anymore. Not like they used to. But I don’t hate on Kim, ’cause she was dope. Now…not so much. But Hard Core was a classic. Biggie did his thing on them verses too.

    And btw, schools, bands, pop artists, OBAMA, and plenty other people have all shouted Nicki out. I don’t see the Grammys letting Kim close their show. Or Madonna inviting her to the Super Bowl. Or her performing at NBA All Stars. Or judging American Idol. Or sponsoring Pepsi. Or having their own barbie. Or selling perfumes like hotcakes. The list goes on. Catch my drift? My b**** is winning and will stay winning. I got receipts if you want ‘em.

    This is one of the reason i like kanye,because he is not corrupt,he might say certain things sometime and people will say he is crazy because it might not come off right,but he always talks how he feels and believe,he an’t fake and if it was someone else they would have took nicki verse off,because it,s the highlight of the album,alot of people out there i know would have took her verse off even though they new it was a hot verse and one of the best in my opinion,and Nicki got alot of recognition from that verse alot of people notice that she can spit from that point on.

    Kanye did NOT say Nicki’s monster verse was the best of all time, He said it was the best VERSE on the best hip hop ALBUM of all time. Meaning Nicki’s verse overshadowed his entire album. That’s true cause all people were talking about was her verse. I will say her verse was the BEST female rap verse of all time tho. Nicki made history with that verse. No other female rapper has EVER featured on a track with all dudes and annihilated “Allegedly” the best in the game. Can y’all imagine how Jay Z and Kanye must’ve felt having a ROOKIE female rapper slaughter them on a track like that? OUCH! And need I remind you that Nicki’s Pink Friday album went on to outsell Kanye’s Dark Twisted Fantasy. And her PF:RR outsold all the guys in 2012. If Nicki puts her head back into her music she could potentially become the greatest rapper of all time. I didn’t say greatest FEMALE rapper, I said GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME.
