Say what you will about Kanye…the guy does whatever he wants. And what he wants right now is to release a whole bunch of music on your ass! One track every Friday until the end of the year. This Friday he dropped Monster, a single from the his forthcoming collaborative EP with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne. This track includes verses from Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Jay-Z. This 6-minutes of pure weirdness includes the verse…
Have you ever had sex with a pharaoh?
I put the pussy in a sarcophagus,
Now she claiming I bruise her esophagus.
Head of the class and she just want a swallowship,
I’m livin’ in the future so the presence is my past.
My presence is a present, kiss my ass.
I would venture to say there’s only one person who could get away with something like that…and if this is what we get with the post-Taylor, post-AutoTune, post-apologetic Kanye…then yeah, I’m good with that.
