“They say I was the abomination of Obama’s nation/ Well, that’s a pretty bad way to start the conversation/ At the end of day, goddammit I know I’m killin’ this sh–/ I know damn well y’all feelin’ this sh–.”

Thursday night, Kanye West returned with power– literally. His new single ‘Power’ hit the Internet with an already sweeping acclaim from industry aficionados, fans and even some haters. After Kanye West’s contentious Taylor Swift interruption at the 2009 MTV ‘Video Music Awards,’ the rapper/producer went underground. West’s image didn’t fall completely into oblivion thanks to ceaseless sightings from girlfriend Amber Rose.

The chanting single insists on the glorious head bop.

“”No one man should have all that power/The clock’s ticking/ I just count the hours/ Stop trippin’, I’m trippin’ off the power/ Till then f— that!/ The world’s ours.”

In true Ye’ form he leans on his egotistical persona with a sample from King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man.” ‘Power’ is arguably one of the hardest and most honest hip hop tracks of the year. What a way to return Ye!

“Power” is an early single from West’s upcoming album Good Ass Job. The track is co-produced by West and Symbolyc One and features vocals from singer Dwele who also appeared on West’s “Flashing Lights” hit. No released date yet announced for the album.

    Hmm I’ve fallen out of love with Kanye recently,I’m sick of him having his crazy oubursts,then backing down and apologizing after.If you’re gonna be controversial do it,or don’t do it at all.

    And it’s his business who he dates,but I keep hearing references to colourism now.There was a performance he did recently where one of his lines was ‘I got me a bad white bitch’ or something.Why is that a trophy?And I’m sure Amber-who identifies herself as multiracial,is happy to know that her bf values her for being ‘white’,and a ‘bitch’.Nice.And on his new song ‘Power’ he’s going on about ‘some light-skinned girls and some Kelly Rowlands’.I thought Kanye was better than rhyming about skin categories.Ol’ Willie Lynch did his work well.

    I love most of Kanye,808 was good,but got to admit,I do miss backpack Kanye.I know Kanyes thing is the sample,but on Power its so obvious and just ‘there’ in the song,in a kind of lazy way.Think Kanye can do better than this.
