Nicki Minaj Says She Had To Convince Kanye To Keep "Monster"

When you think of Nicki Minaj's best verses, "Monster" from Kanye West's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.'

Well, Nicki says that she had to convince Kanye to keep the song on the album!

Check out her Instagram post here, which shows her segment of the video, as well as the story behind it, including how Blac Chyna was her "stunt double" for the video.

7 year anniversary of #Monster Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album. Haha. It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album. He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU'RE KANYE WEST!!!! ???? I became the first female rapper to perform @ Yankee Stadium on the JAY/Eminem stadium tour. When I saw him, Jay said: "when u got so nice"? I said: "I been nice"! Ha! Kanye, thank you for being the genius you are. You always put others first. I fought u every step of the way but it worked out. (He wanted me to add more of that growling monster voice and I felt it was over kill.) He wouldn't give in. In the end, maybe he was right. Ha! - this song featured Barbie and Roman. Chyna was my stunt double in the video. (Due to her ASSets). Amber had spoken highly of me to Ye n pushed for him to meet with me. The rest is history. Ye, Jay, Em...All 3 of them helped me in some way. Love
