First Impressions: Kanye West's 'Power' Pounds Onward

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Back to regularly scheduled blogging earlier than expected (cheers, applause, tears of joy)...Just my luck that I'd be wading in bubble wrap, packing boxes and driving the open Texas trails back home for the summer and Kanye West would crawl out of his den and straight shoot a smoking first bullet from his upcoming Good Ass Job project. Figures. Still catching up is worthwhile as the newbie track, "Power" lives up to it's name and sneeringly delivers. Good Ass Job's first take, which features Dwele and co-production by Symbolyc One, is peppered with Kanye's usual cockiness and a thumping tribal pound that gives us a pretty good guesstimate that Kanye has woken up out of his 808's emo-fueled funk, and that he's back to brash tricks. Thank goodness. Sure Kanye can be a bit of a salt ass in attitude, but there is no denying that he can give us somethin' we can feel each and every time he puts out a fresh track to make us forget all about his fussy spells. Take a listen if you missed it while soaking in Memorial Day weekend and if you like what you hear, it'll be up on iTunes on June 8th for downloading pleasure.
