About Monster

"Monster" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Kanye West, released as the third single from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). The song features rappers Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and singer Justin Vernon of indie folk group Bon Iver. All five credited performers have writing credits on the posse cut, with the production handled by West and Mike Dean. Lyrically, the song expresses often disturbing, horror film-influenced concepts, with some comparing the song's eerie aesthetic to the Michael Jackson track "Thriller". The song contains an atmospheric, drum-heavy composition. Originally released through West's GOOD Friday initiative, a weekly free music giveaway he started to promote My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, "Monster" was later confirmed to be featured on the album, and was released as a digital download on October 23. It was met with mostly positive reviews from music critics, with general praise going towards Minaj's verse and West's production. However, critics were mixed in their assessing of who had the better verse between West and Jay-Z. The song was listed amongst the best tracks of 2010 by publications, with NME placing it at number 53 on its list of the "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".

I shoot the lights out
Hide 'til it's bright out
Whoa, just another lonely night
Are you willing to sacrifice your life?
Ahh!

Bitch I'm a monster no good blood sucker
Fat motherfucker now look who's in trouble
As you run through my jungles all you hear is rumbles
Kanye West sample, here's one for example

Gossip gossip
Niggas just stop it
Everybody know (I'm a motherfucking monster)
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
Profit profit, nigga I got it
Everybody know I'm a motherfucking monster
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands

Uh
The best living or dead hands down huh?
Less talk more head right now huh?
And my eyes more red than the devil is
And I'm bout to take it to another level bitch
No matter who you go and get, ain't nobody as cold as this
Do the rap and the track triple double no assist
And my only focus is staying on some bogus shit
Arguin' with my older bitch acting like I owe her shit
I heard the beat the same raps that give the track pain
Bought the chain that always give me back pain
Fuckin' up my money so yeah I had to act sane
Chi nigga but these hos love my accent
She came up to me and said, "This the number two dial"
If you wanna make it number one your number two now
Mix goose an' Malibu I call it Malibooyauh!
God damn Yeezy how he hit 'em with a new style?
Know that motherfucker well, what you gon' do now
Whatever ever I wanna do, gosh it's cool now
Know I'm gonna do, ah, it's the new now
Think you motherfucker really really need to cool out
'Cause you will never get on top off this
So mommy best advice is to get on top of this
Have you ever had sex with a pharaoh? ahh
I put the pussy in a sarcophagus
Now she claiming I bruise her esophagus
Head of the class and she just want a swallow-ship
I'm living the future so the presence is my past
My presence is a present kiss my ass

Gossip gossip
Niggas just stop it
Everybody knows (I'm a motherfucking monster)
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
Profit profit, nigga I got it
Everybody know I'm a motherfucking monster
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands

Sasquatch, Godzilla, King Kong
Lochness, Goblin, Ghoul, a zombie with no conscience
Question what do all these things have in common?
Everybody knows I'm a motherfucking monster
Conquer, stomp ya, stop your silly nonsense
Nonsense none of you niggas know where the swamp is
None of you niggas have seen the carnage that I've seen
I still here fiends scream in my dreams
Murder murder in black convertibles
I kill a block I murder avenues, I!
Rape and pillage a village, women and children
Everybody wanna know what my Achilles heel is
Love! I don't get enough of it
All I get is these vampires and blood suckers
All I see is these niggas I made millionaires
Milling about, spilling thy feelings in the air
All I see is these fake fucks with no fangs
Tryna draw blood from my ice cold veins
I smell a massacre
Seems to be the only way to back you bastards up

Gossip gossip
Niggas just stop it
Everybody know (I'm a motherfucking monster)
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
Profit profit, nigga I got it
Everybody know I'm a motherfucking monster
I'ma need to see your fucking hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fucking hands

Pull up in the monster
Automobile gangster
With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka
Yeah I'm in that Tonka, color of Willy Wonka
You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer
OK first things first I'll eat your brains
Then I'ma start rocking gold teeth and fangs
Cause that's what a motherfucking monster do
Hairdresser from Milan, that's the monster do
Monster Giuseppe heel that's the monster shoe
Young money is the roster and the monster crew
And I'm all up all up all up in the bank with the funny face
And if I'm fake I ain't notice cause my money ain't!
So let me get this straight wait I'm the rookie?
But my features and my shows ten times your pay
Fifty K for a verse no album out!
Yeah my money's so tall that my barbies gotta climb it
Hotter than a middle eastern climate
Find it, Tony Matterhorn dutty wine it, wine it
Nicki on them titties when I sign it
How these niggas so one-track minded?
But really really I don't give a F-U-C-K
Forget barbie f*ck Nicki 'cause she's fake
She's on a diet but my pockets eating cheesecake
And I'll say bride of Chucky is Child's play
Just killed another career it's a mild day
Besides Ye they can't stand besides me
I think me, you and Am' should menage Friday
Pink wig thick ass give 'em whip lash
I think big get cash make 'em blink fast
Now look at what you just saw, this is what you live for
Ah, I'm a motherfucking monster!

I-I crossed the limelight
And I'll-I'll let God decide-cide
I-I wouldn't last these shows
So I-I am headed home

I-I crossed the limelight
And I'll-I'll let God decide-cide
I-I wouldn't last these shows
So I-I am headed home

I-I crossed the limelight (the limelight)
And I'll-I'll let God decide-cide
And I-I wouldn't last these shows
So I-I am headed home
