In my opinion Kanye in the song doesn't talk about himself, he's referring to TPTB..
Here are a couple of lyrics from the song power:
"No one man should have all that power
The clock’s ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I’m tripping off the power"
"The system broken, the school is closed, the prison's open
We ain’t got nothing to lose,"
"So goodnight, cruel world, I’ll see you in the morning
Huh? I’ll see you in the morning
This is way too much, I need a moment"
"Got treasures in my mind but couldn’t open up my own vault
My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catching up with me
Taking my inner child, I’m fighting for custody
With these responsibilities that they entrusted me
As I look down at my diamond encrusted piece thinking"
"Lost in translation with a whole f-ing nation
They say I was the abomination of Obama’s nation
Well that’s a pretty bad way to start the conversation"
'"Now this will be a beautiful death
(I’m jumping out the window, I’m letting everything go)
You got the power to let power go?"
He was obviously hurt by the death of his mother and it seems like from then on they had him in the bag.
