While a slew of rap aficionados struggle with the task of picking Kanye West's best album, his 2010 effort, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, always finds its way into the conversation. One of the reasons why it's considered his magnum opus is because of his star-studded track "Monster," which featured JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Bon Iver. On Tuesday (Oct. 24), Minaj spoke on the track's seven-year anniversary on Instagram and explained how it almost didn't make the cut.
"Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album. Haha," Minaj began on her lengthy IG post. "It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album. He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!!"
