VIDEO: Kanye West “Monster” f/ Rick Ross, Jay-Z & Nicki Minaj

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Yeezy finally let’s go of the official “Monster” video that was basically banned from TVsort of. Before the video kicks off, the following disclaimer can be seen/read:

“The following content is no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any groups of people. It is an art piece and it shall be taken as such.”

Misogyny is defined as “a hatred of women.” Judging from all the corpses of women in the clip, affection or adoration of females doesn’t exactly come to mind, making that disclaimer seem insincere. Just saying. But great art is supposed to spark discussion or debate. So mission accomplished, right? Maybe, buy Ye has created much better videos.

Also, Nicki’s verse is good, but Jay-Z’s is the best. [Spotted at 2DopeBoyz via Yeezy’s Spot]

Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Fridays Artwork

UPDATE, YET AGAIN: Added “Take One For The Team” and “Don’t Look Down” artwork.

UPDATE, AGAIN: Added Child Rebel Soldier “Don’t Stop” [via LupEND].

UPDATE: Added the latest G.O.O.D. Fridays delivery, “So Apalled” & “Christian Dior Denim Flow” below.

After his Taylor Swift and Hennessey inspired hiatus, Kanye West has returned with a vengeance. XXL Mag cover, outlandish Horus chain, buzzworthy VMA performances and of course, getting quizzical shots fired at him by Dipset.  While the hoopla continues to swirl about Mr. West, I’ve come to appreciate the graphic design of the artwork for his singles (black background with the occasional watermark and bold red lettering). Check your Twitter feed and you’ll see many avatars either swiping them or using them as inspiration. And of course, would be MCs are jacking them wholesale for their own work.

Here is all of Kanye’s artwork for his G.O.O.D. Fridays leaks with download links for each song. Said links probably won’t last very long. So get them while the getting is G.O.O.D. Except for that ish with Beiber—I wouldn’t share that with my worst enemy. Kanye’s fifth album Good Ass Job Dark Twisted Fantasy My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is now due November 16, for now.
