Hot Shot: Kanye West On The Set Of ‘Power’ Video

Published: Thursday 29th Jul 2010 by Trent

Here is a glimpse of Kanye West’s upcoming video for ‘Power’. The song serves as the 1st single to be lifted off his new studio album which hits stores on September 14th. Below is a brief synopsis of what the video would entail:

In a coming video for his single “Power” that was created by the artist Marco Brambilla, Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The Sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade. (ArtsBeat was allowed to watch a portion of this video but was not permitted to post it.) {Source}

    Not very subtle eh?

    The Illuminati got his mind,soul, and his body.

    Well at least he aint trying to fake it anymore. They are making it even more obvious now.

    @TIFF

    He is very flamboyant with his Amun-ra= sun god which is their way of having satanic rituals perform on t.v. The industry artist, actors, and athletes are no more then 40 million dollar slaves for their puppet master the ILLUMINATI. If you haven’t noticed they can’t shake the chains, whether there dressed up fancy with diamonds, its still chains. They will soon see the price for fame. I was listening to Lauryn Hill “Lost ones”. where she says “wisdom is better than silver and gold, also when she said “gain the whole world for he price of your soul”. its priceless.

  13. QUEEN ME July 29, 2010

    kanye blog has turned pornographic and i pray parents don’t let their kids onto his new blog, when he performed this song power on the bet awards he was imitating Moses standing on the mountain top. then the red smoke made him look devilish. well if you sacrifice your mother, and your soul for fame theirs no telling how deep one will go.

  14. Kevin July 29, 2010

    wait is it just going to be one slow cut of kanye just rapping!?

    thats f****** AWESOME!

  15. TRUTH July 29, 2010

    Kanye i know this video is gonna be dope

  16. That Cranberry Sause July 29, 2010

    Uhm… @Queen Me, you’re wrong (like most Illuminati theorists)

    His chain is not of Ra, but of Horus, one of the most notable deities in the Ancient Egyptian religion. Neither of which have anything to do with anything “satanic.”

    Jeez, stop drinking the kool-aid and get off YouTube.

  17. Tiff July 29, 2010

    I like my kool-aid jesus flavored, stank you very much!

  18. carlababy July 30, 2010

    man I really wish ppl would look into things before posting something they know nothing about. As said before by @ thatcranberrysause, that is not Ra. And even if it was it has nothing, nothing to do with worshiping the satan., Now you might also be confused seeing as Ra was merged with Horus, meaning that actually it is a necklace of Ra-Horakhty. (yes i love Egyptian culture,etc guess Im a “worshipper LOL”) but what is funny is that it has NOTHING to do with Santanic worship or anything but instead Ra represents Rebirth, new beghinnings and hope. End of Egyptian lesson lol.

    Either way, can’t wait for the video .

  19. OddOne July 30, 2010

    For f***’s sake, I mean seriously, does anyone remember when a short snippet from the ‘Alejandro’ video was released? Everyone thought a certain still from that video was the Illuminati, it turned out to be GaGa herself. Clap clap.

    Get the f*** over the fact no-one in music gives or even knows a f*** about the Illuminati. Kanye West is, as the source said, using DAMOCLES’ SWORD. Do some research and you’d realise Damocles’ sword in a sword that hangs from the ceiling, that chooses to drop throught the heads of unworthy souls.

    It’s Greek mythology m’dears.

    And as for the pendant around his neck, that just over-sized jewellery with Horus’ head on it. And before you go say Horus is Illuminati-related, he’s an Egyptian God.

    I find it funny that now you’ve all been proven wrong you’re still going to argue and completely brush right over the fact I’ve just given you cold hard facts about the image.

    For Christ’s sake even the PILLARS can tell you it’s Egyptian/Greek ifluenced, not Illuminati. No music video is ever going to contain influences or inagery of the Illuminati, not even ‘Hips Don’t Lie’; that was just a statue on the set of the recording.

    Thanks to everyone else who’s helping to clear up the Illuminati debacle.

  20. OddOne July 30, 2010

    Hmmm.. on further analysis it even looks like he’s wearing a tunic. Or just a baggy top… Either way, it’s going to be an iconic video.

  21. Tiff July 30, 2010

    did the illuminati tell you to say that?

  22. carlababy July 30, 2010

    ODDONE, couldn’t have said it better. Off to listen to Rick Ross/ Jay- Z freemason. let them have their fairy tales.

  23. rick July 30, 2010

    this song sucks. it was a fail as a single. &no a video won’t help it..

  24. The truth teller July 30, 2010

    Is kanye cheating the charts?. His song ‘Power’ pefomence on Billboard hot 100 is fishy!
    VERY fishy.

  25. RiRi July 30, 2010

    Stronger waz is best hit…

  26. OddOne July 30, 2010

    @ Tiff.

    No. They didn’t. I don’t believe in them.

    You’ll be the one peeling your face of the floor from your faceplant when you realise that this, like the ‘Alejandro’ snippet, has about as much to do with the Illuminati as Tupperware lunch box does.

    Enjoy.

  27. DRU July 30, 2010

    KANYE IS A MUSIC GENIUS… HE ALSO HAS STYLE JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS DIFFERENT DOESNT MEAN ITS WRONG… DIDNT PEOPLE EVER TELL U THAT WHEN YALL WERE LITTLE… YOU CANT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN… OH AND HIS POWER SONG BEIN ON THE TOP 100 ISNT FISHY…THE SONG IS HOTT…AND REMEMBER NO MATTER HOW ARROGANT OF A B******, HE IS KANYE WEST… MARINATE ON THAT FOR A MIN…

  40. electric bike February 15, 2015

    Electric bikes also save loads of valuable time by alleviating the
    need to search for a parking space. This allows riders approximately 2-3 hours
    riding time, depending on use. ‘Employing an e-bike helps travelers prepare psychologically
    for covering the longer distances undertaken on a bike tour,’ Ruzinskas
    says. Whatever formula is used, the local cost of electricity,
    along with the fast recharge capability of lithium-ion batteries and
    their long and lasting power output certainly has a lot to do
    with it. Your in all probability thinking these electric bikes cost a lot, but that is the place your improper.
    Take the kids with you, but only pedal if you want to.
