Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West's gory and half-naked corpse filled "Monster" music video has leaked online and features appearances from Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj.
The unfinished music video footage began circulating online Thursday (December 30) evening.
Hackers have targeted Kanye West once again -- the unfinished music video for his new track "Monsters" has leaked online. A gory five-minute video, which features Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, hit the Internet on Thursday, shocking viewers with graphic images of zombies feasting on flesh, as West raps about being "the best living or dead, hands down."

Ye's latest My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy single visual attempts to live up to the title with gory-themed shots.
Does the leaked video live up to the hype? That depends on your tolerance for arty shots of dead women in various states of undress. The clip as it stands now is full of half-naked female corpses -- hanging from the ceiling by their necks as Rick Ross reclines, slumping over in bed next to West, sprawled face-down on a couch behind an uncomfortable-looking Jay-Z. At one point, West stands casually holding a woman's blood-dripping severed head in one hand. (Entertainment Weekly)
Minaj is also featured in the clip rapping back-and-forth with herself.
Kanye West's 'Monster' video is somewhat of a creepy mini-film, a modern 'Thriller' with enough gore, zombies feasting on flesh, decapitated heads, and blood to make Michael Jackson turn over in his grave. 'Monster' features cameos from Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver and Nicki Minaj. Minaj could be considered more of a co-star to Kanye's lead. In one scene, Minaj is shown with gold fangs, acting as a dominatrix to another version of herself in a white dress, wearing her signature pink wig. (Popeater)
The song is featured on Yeezy's new album, which currently stands at 824,000 sold units.
