I’m living in that 21st Century, doing something mean to it
Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it

from Kanye West (Ft. Dwele) – Power Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye claims he’s the best rapper of the century. It’s also a nod to the main song sampled by this track, “21st Century Schizoid Man” by King Crimson.

This boast is larger than his music endeavors. He is implying that he has heavily influenced the 21st century as a whole, beyond rap, and is simply a great addition to mankind.
