’10 Best Singles: #6 Kanye West “Power”

I’ve already gone on the record a coupla times about how much I dug Kanye’s comeback song from the moment the joint accidentally leaked. Oops! Fuck the radio, “Power” was the record Donda’s baby boy had to deliver. A snarling salute to one’s self—it’s swagger on a hundred thousand somethin’ somethin’. Almost serving as its own EP, it set the stage nicely for the G.O.O.D. Friday campaign, which all culminated with the release of MBDTF. Whether one song or with a full body of work, Mr. West ain’t playin’ with you fools. That boy good.

    I dont like the song anymore, I skip over it everytime. It was cool when I first heard it, but its just kinda annoying to me now. Great song to set the tone for the rest of GOOD Friday though. But yeah, 6 is cool though I feel like I can name more than 5 singles better than this though. I woulda put it as 10 or not on the list at all. Thats just my opinion. No controversy on this list yet? Hmm.

  • Eddie Arkadian

    BMF will be #1!!!

  • NIN

    @Word cosign; I think it really went downhill for me when that “Social Network” movie came out and I started hearing it every 10 minutes on the commercials

    Overally good track tho, I guess I just got really tired of it.

  • fuk waka

    ahhh i can see where this is going
    waka and rick ross shit gonna top the list

  • Nucky Thompson

    btw can anybody explain the “Colin Powell, Austin Powers” line? Cuz at least to me, that one makes so little sense it kinda brings the song down. It seems like he might have thought Colin Powell’s last name was Powers? Or something. #justwondering

    When this leaked Memorial Day weekend, this was all that I was listening too.

  • Ac@pella!

    This shoulda been higher. Not saying that because I’m a biased Kanye fan, but because this shit was really dope and I STILL bump this shit in the whip and the crib like it’s June 2010.
