Have you ever had sex with a pharaoh?
Put the pussy in a sarcophagus

from Kanye West (Ft. Bon Iver, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj & Rick Ross) – Monster Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye West has really become obsessed with Egyptian culture lately…

kanye-king-tut1-copy

Here, he offers to beat the pussy up (aggressively make love) until he kills the pussy, which will be put to rest in its Egyptian tomb.

There is also a pun here on the propensity of ancient Egyptians to mummify and bury cats in the same way they did people

Kanye really likes saying Have you ever? in his songs.

In Good Life,

Have you ever popped champagne on a plane?

In Run This Town,

Have you ever had shoes without shoe strings?

In Big Brother,

Have you ever walked in the shadow of a giant?

In Bittersweet Poetry,

Have you ever felt you ever want to kill her?

In Bound 2,

Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?

For semantic nerds, Kanye’s off here: If you look at the root of the word sarcophagus, you will find that it means (sarco) flesh (phagus) eating, flesh eating. By putting the pussy in a sarcophagus, Professor Kanye would be eating out the pussy.
