Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Best line: "I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts/Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault."
Complex says: After an extended hiatus, Mr. West returned to the scene with the undeniable anthem “Power.” There are plenty of quotables in the other verses (Kelly Rowland we see you!), but ’Ye really let loose on the second verse. The highlight comes from ’Ye dealing with reality ruining his dark twisted fantasy, a place where his inner child roams free of the immense scrutiny that he’s had to face. And yeah, we know they just had Eminem and Lil Wayne on there. But guess what? SNL can still kiss our ass.
Lyrics: “Fuck SNL and the whole cast/Tell them Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass/More specifically they can kiss my ass hole/I'm an asshole? You nigga's got jokes!/You short minded niggas, thoughts is Napoleon/My verses Mongolian, my ice brought the goalies in/I embody every characteristic of the egotistic/He knows, he so, fuckin' gifted/I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts/Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault/My child-like 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 entrust in me/As I look down at my diamond crush to piece."
