Editors’ Notes My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is masterful. Even with high-profile contributors Nicki Minaj (“Monster”), Elton John (“All of the Lights”), Jay Z (“So Appalled”, “Monster”), RZA (“Dark Fantasy”, “So Appalled”), and Bon Iver (“Lost in the World”), Kanye is the orchestrator of this musical extravaganza that challenged listeners to check their preconceived notions of hip-hop and himself.
