Kanye West dropped his first G.O.O.D. Friday offering, “Monster,” last week, a plodding, six-minute epic featuring nothing but heavy-hitting MCs.
“Gossip, gossip, everybody stop it, everybody know I’m a mutha’ f****** monster,” Kanye spits on the track.
In addition to nailing Jay-Z and Rick Ross to the track, ‘Ye gave Nicki Minaj ample real estate to show of her multiple personalities.
Kanye, Jay and Rick aside, though, streets are talking about the pint-sized rapper.
“Nicki smashed ‘Monster’!” hip-hop fan John Lacarbier tweeted. “She’s growing on me!”
Fan Alex Alexander co-signed, “Not only did Nick kill it, she bodied Hov, Ye, and Ross!”
Even Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings expressed his love for the song, exclaiming, “OMG Nikki Minaj is a beast! She bodied that Kanye West ‘Monster.'”
A few folks weren’t believing the hype, though.
Bronx hip-hop head Scheme tweeted, “No hate but what’s the big deal?”
Photographer and graphic designer Ryan Herring still prefers old ‘Ye to the new G.O.O.D. Friday tracks.
“U can’t tell me Power or Monster is better than Pre-808s Kanye,” he challenged.
Either way, with three months ’til Christmas, there are plenty more G.O.O.D. Fridays to come.
What do you think? Does Nicki kill Kanye’s “Monster”? Let us know in the comments!
