Kanye West's Power [Struggle]

the cover for his new single, Power, which he was chosen to open the BET awards with

interesting image and song, particularly these lines:

Now this’ll be a beautiful death
Jumpin’ out the window
Lettin’ everything go
Lettin’ everything go

You got the power to let power come

reminds me of my other post on Basquiat (obviously his artistic motif of decapitated heads/bodies, his own quote "most kings get their heads cut off", which alegedly inspired Jay-Z's line "the same sword they knight you, the gon goodnight you with") irony particularly Eshu-like...
