Kanye West's "Power" inspired by Malcolm X movie | The Amajanese BlogSeems like this scene of the Malcom X biopic starring Denzel Washington inspired the main line in Kanye's "Power." Watch the clip above starting at the 1:00 minute marker and watch it til the end. The cop at the end says "That's too much power for one man to have."
Now you could say that it's a coincidence and that this has nothing to do with Kanye's song but if you listen to Kanye's "Livin' a Movie" [listen to it HERE] you'll notice that he already used the "No one mand should have all that power" line in that song, referring to the Malcom X movie.
...and by now we all know that the exact same line is now prominently featured in "Power." Yup!
