Hide 'til it's bright out

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

Meaning

Much like a vampire might do, a type of monster, especially one in vogue in 2010-11.

However

“hide ‘til its bright out” is the opposite of what a vampire or stereotypical monster would do. These celebrity “monsters” come into their own when everyone can see them.

This statement could also be an allegory for the fact that Kanye disappeared from the spotlight after his run-in at the VMAs, he shot out his own lights and now he needs to wait for more lights—ALL of the lights—to come on before he can step back into the spotlight.

This could also be a reference to celebrities feeling like monsters, due to having to hide from the paparazzi (lights).
