The Kanye “Power” Video is Going to be Pretty Damn Cool…We Think

4 Aug

We knew Ye’s been up to something – the hype surrounding his next album is honestly ridiculous – but check out the production of his new “Power” music video.

“POWER shows a continuous camera move from extreme close-up of Mr. West revealing an a neoclassical video tableau showing characters and creatures surrounding him in an abstract environment – all moving in extreme slow motion.

Inspired by Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the piece depicts a faux historical moment – an empire on the brink of collapse from its own excess, decadence and corruption.” – TheImmaterialStudio video description

Sure, we have no idea what the hell that means but we can tell you that “Power” is going to land somewhere between “mind-boggling” and “creative genius” on the Kanye West scale (808s and Heartbreak being the bottom rung of the ladder, Graduation at the top).

The video is set to premiere at 11PM on August 5th on MTV, although recent events show that not everyone in hip-hop can be held true to their word.
