kanye west: power!

August 8, 2010

Kanye West is and will probably remain my favorite rapper. You may question his antics or disapprove of his attitude, but that’s not any of my business. I am always too impressed by his artistic genius to care about his outbursts (besides, Beyoncé did make one of the best videos of all time). From his music to his style, he is just the ultimate artist to me. This post, though, is about his videos! More specifically, his provocative video for his new single Power!

Watching this innovative music video is basically why I love him. I get into anyone who isn’t scared to reinvent themselves and their craft. This video is fresh in concept and very inspiring to an artist like myself. Instead of the typical music video, Power is a beautiful portrait – literally. It’s a painting that slowly zooms in all of the different subjects (Kanye included) to tell an abstract story. I don’t know if this concept has been done before, but Kanye definitely innovated and refreshed a genre that some say is dying. Kanye West is a trailblazer and he is here to stay, people. Stay mad.
