One of the mystery celebrity contestants in “The Masked Singer” is The Monster. When the new singing competition show premiered on Fox on January 2, 2019, he sang “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen.
“I am The Monster because that is what the world labeled me,” The Monster said. “I’m here to rewrite my mixtapes to prove that I’m more than just puff and fluff. I was at the top of my game but the game turned on me so I retreated into my cave to take a break from the public eye.”
“But now I’m here to set the record straight and show the world that no one can stop me from doing what I love,” The Monster added. “Stay tuned because this monster is back.”
The Monster stands 5 8″. Here are three rappers who fit the height and have released at least one mixtape:
