Listen: New Kanye West Song w/ Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver & Nicki Minaj + Kanye Twitter Quiz!

Fish sticks anyone?

Kanye West and Jay-Z have apparently collaborated on a new EP called "Watch the Throne," according to the West's Twitter. West recently released a first listen to the results of the collaboration called "Monster" featuring cameos by Rick Ross, Bon Iver (?!?!!), Nicki Minaj, and of course, Jay-Z. The song is not half bad especially near the end where Minaj goes a little nuts, in that good way.

Of course a Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration isn't as exciting if you consider the rumors going around that West doesn't make his beats and Jay-Z doesn't write his own lyrics. A notable producer (who wants to stay anonymous) told me that West uses a team of producers to make his beats, and Jay-Z has a group of writers who help him lay down lyrics. They basically pick and choose the best material made by their people and run with it. It's like the Sizzler buffet, only with hip hop parts, not tiny corn cobs. Sure, this is no different that 98% of pop music, but then again, commercial rap is pop music.

But I digress. Kanye joined Twitter a little over a month ago, and has been dropping gems ever since. Comedian/actor Aziz Ansari even went as far as creating the hashtag #predictingKanyesTweets to preview the hypothetical insanity West could espouse in 140 characters or fewer. (Ansari has since moved on to #predicting50centTweets)

After the jump, listen to "Monster" featuring Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver And Nicki Minaj, and take our quiz to see if you can tell the difference between real Kanye and fake Kanye tweets.
