TOP SONGS OF 2010:#6 KANYE WEST-MONSTER Featuring. JAY-Z, RICK ROSS, NICKI MINAJ & BON IVER
5/5. This guy had so many classics on his album, 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' and his free 'G.O.O.D Friday' giveaways that he could fill t is list twice over. Still however because there have been so many great records here the rule is one record per artist. So our choice for Kanye is 'Monster', possibly the greatest...and strangest posse cuts of recent years. I mean folk singer Bon Iver is on it, but he holds his own, as does everybody else... and boy do they. Rick Ross provides the perfect intro, leaving you fiending for more bars. Then Kanye and Jay-Z give them to you, as they don't disappoint with their brilliant verses. Still even they pale in comparison to Nicki Minaj, the guest artist and guest rap of the year. This may as well be her song as she owns it with her incredibly retarded, kinetic, shockingly superior verse. The lines, "Pull up in the monster/Automobile gangster/With a bad b**** that came from Sri Lanka/Yeah I’m in that Tonka, colour of Willy Wonka/You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer/Ok first things first I’ll eat your brains/Then I’mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs", is just the tip of the coldest, iceberg flow ever. Truly a creature on a different level, truly a monster. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
