The 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time

16. Nicki Minaj on Kanye West's "Monster" (2010)

Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Producer: Kanye West, Mike Dean, Plain Pat
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam

Since Nicki came from a theatrical background, it seems appropriate that she would wait until she had the world stage and an all star cast to make like Busta on "Scenario" and steal the whole damn show.

Cartoon voices, vocal dramatics, and split personality rapping all feature in this jaw-dropping verbal barrage, which climaxes with the following indecent proposal: "Besides 'Ye, they can't stand besides me/I think me, you, and Am should menage Friday." Let's not forget the Mortal Kombat Fatality aimed at the former Queen Bee: "Wait, I'm the rookie, but my features and my shows ten times your pay?/50K for a verse, no album out!" Game, set, and match.
