Summary: The blog had really gone to shit, I felt bad and after I heard this song I just couldn’t NOT post any longer. Here it is off of his fifth and upcoming album Good Ass Job due out this fall, Kanye’s Power
About Artist: Everyone “knows” who Kanye is. He’s a world famous star. But before Heartless, before Love Lockdown, before 808’s and Autotune, before Stronger, before Good Life and Can’t Tell Me Nothing, before Touch the Sky and before Goldigger, before Jesus Walks, All Fall Down, and before The New Workout Plan Kanye was famous makin beats for Jay-Z (before he was King). This is just to say that Kanye has been around now for a long time now and his career and talents is more than a drunk evening with Taylor Swift. So get it right.
About Song: It called Power.
First the beat is crazy. The west African vocals with the clapping with the King Crimson guitar and screaming it’s just great. The second part of the song features vocals from Dwele and the song really progresses from beginning to end.
“The system broken, the schools closed, the prisons open
We ain’t got nothin’ to lose, ma’fucka, we rollin’
Huh? Ma’fucka, we rollin’
With some light-skinned girls and some Kelly Rowlands” -(0:37)
“Now I embody every characteristic of the egotistic
He know, he so, fuckin’ gifted
I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts
Got treasures in my mind but couldn’t open up my own vault
My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being prodded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catchin’ up with me
Takin’ my inner child, I’m fighting for it, custody” -(1:47)
“Colin, Powers, Austin, Powers
Lost in translation with a whole fuckin’ nation
They say I was the obamanation of Obama’s nation
Well, that’s a pretty bad way to start the conversation
At the end of day, goddammit, I’m killin’ this shit
I know damn well y’all feelin’ this shit
I don’t need yo’ pussy, bitch, I’m on my own dick
I ain’t gotta power trip, who you goin’ home with?
How ‘Ye doin’? I’m survivin’
I was drinkin’ earlier, now I’m drivin’
Where the bad bitches, huh? Where ya hidin’?
I got the power, make yo’ life so excitin’ (So excitin’)” (2:42 third verse, 2:54 has a piano part almost identical to parts in Jesus Walks)
