Kanye West Has "Power"

Mr. West, along with his Chicago-sized ego, is about to deliver Good Ass Job (due out sometime this summer), an album that has the added pressure of bridging the large gap between (non-vocoder) recordings, plus making up for a few years of missteps, meltdowns, and hijacked award shows. As new singles go, so far so good. "Power" is not lyrically subtle, but with West's urgent flow and its swaying tempo, it's nice to hear a song that stands up to his back catalog.

Plus it features something every hiphop single needs: a King Crimson sample.
