Nicki Minaj slays on "Monster," but according to her, it almost didn't make Kanye West's album.
The 34-year-old rapper took to Instagram on Tuesday to celebrate the song's seventh anniversary with a snippet of her verse from the track.
"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," Minaj wrote. "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," she continued. "When I saw him, Jay said: 'when u got so nice'? I said: 'I been nice'! Ha!"
