1) Kanye West, “Power” (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, 2010)
My Beautiful Dark Twist Fantasy was arguably Kanye West’s last truly, great album. It yielded one inescapably, cocky hit in “Power,” in which the egotistical MC proclaimed, “No one man should have all that power.” One of his best lyrics comes along when he pokes fun at himself: “F**k SNL and the whole cast / tell them Yeezy said they can kiss my whole a** / more specifically they can kiss my a**hole / I’m an a**hole? You n***as got jokes.”
