Kanye West - POWER

So, I was reading a Likes and Dislikes blog and one of the dislikes was Kanye's eyes in the Power video, which I had never seen before. So, I youtubed it and this video ^ came up.

Now, everyone talks about the ROC Nation being a part of the illuminati. Ummmm yeah I'm just a little concerned with kanye's sanity now... but I'll still listen to the music.

I feel like in this video clip Kanye himself is portraying some sort of god, like back in the 14th and 15th centuries when people believed in gods and goddesses. Could this be Kanye's world? Hell on Earth for him.

I wonder where the long hallway behind him leads to? Why his guards are two young women dressed as angels with devil horns?

Why two women are pouring water over themselves, cleansing their souls maybe? What is the purpose of all these contradicting symbols?

And oh yeah... why is it that Kayne apparently is coming to his demise as at 1:27 in the video the man and woman are going to stab him with their swords.

Stop the video @ 1:27 though, it would make for a pretty cool picture for someone to sketch out. (Maybe I'll do it)

But my biggest question is to one of my fellow blogger's... How do you feel about this symbolism?

oh. you hadn't already viewed the video? my bad. Lol. when i first witnessed the video i became worried about Kanye's sanity myself. true enough i figure him to be a genius talent, but all the darkness being represented within this video, and music, period, is kinda discouraging. although, as you hinted towards, Kanye makes good solid music. i think ROC Nation has afforded itself the opportunity to capitalize off the increased attention. Google to find a greater understanding of the video.
