Rappers Kanye West, Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz have teamed up and released a new remix to Ye's "Power" hit single.
The record hit the Internet late Thursday (August 19) night.
Martin Louis the King Jr. powers up with the remix to his first single featuring the almighty Jay-Z, John Legend, and Swizz Beatz, who he called the greatest rap producer of all time. The hip-hop cash kings trade verses about their superstar status and dominance over the bombastic beat. Swizzy samples "The Power" by Snap! on the latter part of the remix and Yeezy reminds us that he has friends in high places.
