No sooner had we heard that Kanye West had agreed to appear in Kim Kardashian’s music video that we got word ‘Ye himself had a new video to drop, and it’s a doozy. As previewed a few weeks ago, “Monster” is a (beautiful?) dark twisted fantasy of sorts, with Kanye, Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj all confronting a haunted house full of supermodel corpses, zombies and other things that go bump in the night. Watch the full-length (and just possibly, unfinished) video below. But maybe don’t watch it alone?
Oh, that Kanye — always thinking of ways to get a head. Particularly creepy is the early scene in which Yeezy lays in bed (and kind of spurs on a threesome) with two dead models. But we admit we thoroughly enjoyed watching Nicki Minaj take on … Nicki Minaj in her tongue-twisting appearance. (Was that a lap dance?) All told, it’s a memorable clip — credit is due to director Jake Nava — but can anything top “Power”? Perhaps the eventual(?) video for “All Of The Lights”.
And here we thought we’d have to settle for “unofficial” videos to get our Kanye fix this week.
What did you think?
