The 2010 Hip-Hop Cash King says he, Kanye West and Swizz Beatz are 'in search of the truth/ Even if it goes through Taylor Swift.'
The remixed version of Kanye West's new single "Power" has been out for fans' listening pleasure. Having additional lines from Swizz Beatz, the revamped track also features Jay-Z who can be heard name-checking Taylor Swift in the audio stream.
First, the Roc Nation founder who has previously defended Kanye over his infamous MTV VMAs stage crash gives advice to young musicians. "F**k all these labels/ F**k what everyone wants from you," he raps before warning that they're trying to "Axl Rose you/ Welcome to the Jungle." Then, he spits verses about being "in search of the truth/ Even if it goes through Taylor Swift."
After Jay-Z says music industry might not be too friendly for some people, Kanye urges fans to take chances and make their own path. "Grab a camera, shoot a viral/ Huh? Take the power in your own hands/ I'm a grown man, doin' my grown dance," he suggested, giving a nod to Internet as a self-promotional platform.
