The teaser for Kanye West’s “Monster” video leaked in early December, and this unfinished version of the whole video showed up online just before New Year’s Eve. I don’t think either have officially premiered anywhere. The audio goes out of sync on this YouTube’d version, and there’s Getty Images logos on some of the scenes, but otherwise “Monster” looks complete, with zombie and werewolf models stalking West around a mansion, Jay-Z and Rick Ross posing with dead models, etc. As with the song, Nicki Minaj steals the show. But this clip looks the most like West’s G.O.O.D. Friday artwork out of all his videos so far. This was directed by Jake Nava, who’s also directed Beyoncé’s videos for “Single Ladies” and “Crazy In Love.” This bit of paparazzi video caught West shooting something for “All Of The Lights.”
