Kanye West - "Power (ft. Dwele)"

I'm going to step out of my comfort zone for a bit to cover a new Kanye West track today, per Dylan's request. Here's "Power," featuring soul singer Dwele. The egotistical rapper spits rhymes with his usual aplomb, thankfully dropping the auto-tune that slathered his latest release, 2008's 808s & Heartbreak. Chanting and steady handclaps propel the driving beat, and Kanye even incorporates some prog-rock with a sample from King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man" (a lolwut moment, for sure). Later on, Dwele smooths things over after a brief synth solo.
