People that don't listen to rap sgouldn't comment on it, just as people who don't know Kanye shouldn't comment on him. The video is nice and if you actually listened to the lyrics of the song you wouldn't be calling him an idiot. Kanye's one of the best artists of the decade. Ya'll should stick to discussing UFOs and that Illuminati stuff.

The video was somewhat interesting.

The “song”, I cannot say the same for it. The video would have been better without the vocals altogether. I also have no idea what the lyrics had to do with the visuals, they might as well have played “marry had a little lamb”.

Not creepy at all, song not good, vid very short, just some symbolism - I give it a B for Bad!

Interesting, the rain clouds are raining what I would call blood even though everything is black. Despite the color the rain flows just as blood would flow. I can see what you mean by that video; of course, her “umbrella” is similar with symbolism.

The video you linked though had so much stuff flashing it is hard to believe.

I am starting to suspect that these people have no idea what any of this might mean. I suspect that someone does and that they are nothing more than pawns in the game of control. When things are done, they will be tossed aside as any other used toy would be.

I like some of his early stuff mostly for the beats since that is his specialty. I heard this song a week ago and was very dissapointed though. The title is cool "Power" there are limitless ways to play with that but he keeps repeating "What should one man do with all this power!" And I was thinking chill dude, you're an artist, a rapper, not Alexander you have no clue what power is besides impressing an army of teenagers to give you their parents money.

after listen to it and watching the vid i wanted to see- hear for my self what all the hub bub was about, well let see the first line "liven in the 21 century" nothing wrong there that is what we are in. The second line "do in some thing mean to it" well yes we are every day more forest ares are destroyed, rivers polluted, air made toxic, wars and war threats.

I will skip 3 line just prat of rap 4th line "No one man should have all that power" well what do you know, some one that speaks the truth and is put down for it, do not take my word, listen for your self no all rock, rap, and hip- hop is of evil doings, how many references of the book of rev did you see notice?

Yes i am one of them that take apart music, and hear the words, just not listen, remember "hotel cal" by the"EAGLES", "just cant kill the BEAST" and "you can check out, but you may NEVER LEAVE".

I listen to plenty of rap and I've read enough of Mr. West's shenanigans to surmise that he's not the type of person I'd want to hang out with. He seems, at the very least, slightly unbalanced and possibly suffering some sort of psychosis.

Here is some good rap. West isn't among my contributions. If you like rap, come check out the BTS music forum, there's a few rap fans there but we could always use some more. And check out the collaborations thread in my signature, there's quite a bit of good rap there.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



Actually, I'm kind of enjoying this latest contribution of Kanye's.

Been analyzing the video all day...so far I've gotten this storyline:



The warrior/slave from Egypt walking through the halls of Rome, protected by a warrior god (the chain with the head of Horus)...led into the temptations, pleasures and decadence of the Roman Empire.

Or, he's returning from his battle with Rome and entering into the rewards for his service in the name of Horus (who also battled and won a fight with Set.)


(Powerful story right there, in regards to modern mythology/storytelling.)



_____________


I don't wish to turn this into a Kanye bashing and music debate...this thread is really more about the symbolism in the video.

Kanye is a performance artist, he's just an actor playing out the archetypical storyline here....through words, music and visuals.

(That comes with the territory in the industry.)

I can't fault him for getting caught up in the egoistic aspect of it...that world is a madhouse, and it's very easy to lose perspective.

(which is also interesting, considering this video seems to be standoffish to his role in the whole Entertainment-Illuminati world. At least to me, anyway.)

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.


*edit to add, clarify point
