Chris and Travis are officially working their way through what is arguably the strongest stretch of songs on College Dropout by breaking down the epically epic Two Words. They discuss the lack of thematic structure in relation to the strong aesthetics and production, Kanye's love for Chicago, and what Freeway's crazy-ass verse says about Kanye as a rookie in the studio. Also, North and Kim get matching French braids, Kanye buys Kim 150 Christmas presents, and Jay Z starts a nationwide manhunt to find his favorite pajamas.
For the first time in Watching the Throne history, Chris and Travis are at a loss. They love Kanye. They love everything he's ever created: Yeezus, Breathe In Breathe Out, North West, Drake—even the songs featuring Jay Z! But, alas, here they are presented with a song that just doesn't make any sense. Listen as they try to figure out what is actually going on in School Spirit and discuss whether or not it is, indeed, the worst song in Kanye's entire discography.
They've been hyping it for weeks, and now it's finally here: Chris and Travis have dubbed Breathe In Breathe Out one of Kanye's worst songs in the past—but now confronted with dissecting the song, have they had a change of heart? Do they hate it even more? Does the song reveal a deeper thematic narrative on the album? Did North become the youngest person to ever get a driver's license? Does Jay-Z finally try double-stuffed Oreos? Will you stop asking questions and just listen to this episode already?
