Video & Audio

"Monster" Official Video

We're not sure if it's complete, but this is the version that was leaked in late December 2010. It has sparked controversy for its depiction of violently murdered women.

"Monster" Live with Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West

The Young Money Headquarters fan site gives us this pre-release live video.

"Dark Fantasy"

The first track on the album features an impressive introduction by Nicki Minaj, who is paraphrasing Roald Dahl's re-telling of Cinderella.

Nicki Minaj: "Your Love"

A taste of Pink Friday, Minaj's album released on the same day as West's. Minaj's performances don't always live up to her monstrous reputation. In this cheesy video, she wears a claw like Sasha Fierce and swoons over a guy (even though in real life she says she doesn't care for men). Hm.
