Kanye West has been in the news heavy this week. Whether he’s trolling himself with drooping over-sized Yeezy slides, or clearing up where he stands on this apparent Drake beef, his ex, Amber Rose, has resurfaced talk of his classic My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
Hitting up the Open Late Peter Rosenberg’s Complex series, Rose discussed her role in getting the “Monster” track to come together. As Nicki Minaj and many have cited as “Monster” being one of her many stand out features, and Minaj has also stated that Ye encouraged her to write the best verse possible, the Queen might not have even made it on the record, if it weren’t for Rose.
I believed in Nicki from the beginning. I was with Kanye at the time and I was like, ‘Kanye, you gotta give her a shot like she’s amazing…He tried it out and he put her on ‘Monster.’ He was like, ‘damn, she fuckin’ killed that shit.
Amber also says that Nicki’s line, “I think me, you and Am should menagé Friday,” was a nod to her efforts for finally getting on the track.
