First Look at Kanye West’s ‘Power’ Video

Kanye West

Kanye West’s six-figure Horus chain hangs low in this first image from his “Power” video. The New York Times got a sneak peek of the clip directed by artist Marco Brambilla. As Mr. West raps, the camera slowly pans out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him surrounded by nude female attendants; some kneel before him, others wear devil horns, and some are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The Sword of Damocles hangs over the rapper’s head, while an executioner prepares to strike him with a blade.

“It’s kind of apocalyptic, in a very personal way,” Brambilla told ArtsBeat. “It’s a very exaggerated hyper-sensational version of what the song is saying.”

The controversial video is expected to premiere next week on Kanye’s website.

    it called art and not just someone in a club popping bottles. I know some of yall arent used to creativity. If any of believe that devil worshiping stuff you really might want to seek a mental evaluation asap

    Gay ass fake rappers- all of em have now become bonifide properties of the “ELITE” manipulating the masses inorder to establish their NEW WORLD ORDER. I mean like seriously rappers are complete tools of the capitalist system currenlty. I aint no more wasting my time around these sellout bags infact i’d better hug myself and go to sleep for being fully aware of their gimmicks they infiltrating in our society.

    kanye west is an artist in all forms of it. If your a fan of his then this is what you should expect. I for one enjoy something creative over something simple because in this economy you better give your all as an artist if you expect me to spend my hard earned money to buy your album. I can always count on ye to give his all as a TRUE artist. Please kill the illuminati talk i feel like there has been a breakout at the psyche ward because yall are really mentally insane

    It’s not a masonic owl dumb@$$ it’s a fictional Egyptian god. And Power is an epic song, so it needs an epic video! U mean to tell me a black & white video with some champagne popping and all that will suffice for that song?
