Power

Album: Age Against The Machine (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Originally titled "White Power," this high tempo track was described by Cee-Lo Green during a Los Angeles press conference to promote the album as "a black perspective on white power."
  • The Goodie Mob tried to get Eminem on the track but it didn't work out for unspecified reasons. Cee Lo Green told MTV's Rap Fix Live: "It had gotten out to the press and I just thought that it made a bold statement so I thought that Eminem would easily jump at the controversy being that I heard he had been gearing up to do a new record and getting ready to get back out and fight."
