HOLY SHNIKIES!!! [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm]! Calm down! This remix is insane! It’s got [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] rapping and [lastfm]Swizz Beatz [/lastfm]producing. That’s a lot of star power! Swizz ‘n ‘Ye even took it back in the day with another “Power” song half way through the remix.
[lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm] doesn’t make just “okay” remixes but WOW.
[lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] starts it off in the thirty-first century where, “Penthouses is the projects and everybody flies private”. SIGN ME UP!
Hova also notes that he has garnered enough power to actually get out from under himself, relating to having enough power and money to get out from under the rule of his previous label and their executives.
Finally, [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] spits that he is, “In search of the truth even if it goes through [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm], tell her this,” then it cuts to the chorus, “No one man should have all this power.”
- Uhhh. What does that mean? I understand the Taylor Swift incident, but in the words or sounds of Kanye, ” haanh!?”
[lastfm]Kanye[/lastfm] says all people have enough power these days and though we all can’t become American Idols, but we all, “can grab a camera and shoot a viral”.
- Touche Mr. West, touche.
Then ‘Ye gets political with the Pakistan floods and wants the US to keep the troops out of Iran.
- Yadda yadda, yadda… let’s get to the music. I’m too excited here.
Oh yeah! That throwback, “Power” track they use, is [lastfm]Snap[/lastfm]‘s “Power” and oh boy, did they used it well!
Reeeeemixxxxxxxx!!!! Kanye West – Power (Remix – Feat. Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz):
