Just want to feel liberated, they-ey-ey-ey...they just want to feel liberated they-ey-ey-ey...if they ever bored you to death they're SORRRRYYYYY! Actually, Chris, Travis, and Jordan are sorry about this analysis, which goes so in depth into Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 & 2 (from The Life of Pablo) that you'll probably and unfortunately never even need to listen to the song again. They talking duality, adultery, liberation, and pandas in an episode that just will not end. Tell me who in here can relate.
Doctors say they the illest 'cause they suffering from realness—that's right, Chris and Travis are back for another week of Kanye news, telling it like it is when it comes to Taylor Swift, Wiz Khalifa, and Ryan Tedder (now known as He Who Must Not Be Named). They also discuss the upcoming Famous video, cover a Kim-North-Saint-heavy week, give a preview of next week's StorYe, and pretend to care about Jay Z's obsession with The Legend of Zelda.
Chris and Travis tore On Sight a new one a couple months ago, but even that couldn't prepare them for what's on the docket today—it's time to talk about Black Skinhead and everything that comes with it, from the narrative on Yeezus to racial injustice to alienation to inspiration to goon shit to anarchy to becoming a god to putting your black jeans on by any means...on. So yeah, they, like, cover a lot.
LOOK THE F$&K OUT WE BOUTS TA HIT THE YE BUTTON. That's right, it's that time of the week for the thing literally nobody in the world is asking for—your weekly Kanye, Kim, North, Saint, and Jay Z news. Chris and Travis discuss the Saint Pablo Tour, Taylor Swift (aka Tay Tay (aka snek)), North's third birthday, and a young Stan's interaction with the one and only himself. Life is good, fam.
Ain't no question if they want it, Chris and Travis NEED to talk about Gorgeous. Partly because it's the next song on the list, but also because, well, this song is goddamn incredible. They get into Kanye's continued obsession with fame on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, his role as a preacher for a new religion (hip hop), the plethora of micro-narratives, and how the oppression of black people extends from the streets to the top of Mount Olympus.
After a lean episode with Jordan, Chris and Travis are proving they literally have zero self control. They discuss Kanye's birthday, Kanye-themed ice cream, Jay Z just missing out on the Panama Papers, Macklemore and George Zimmerman on the Kanye Barometer, a Throner's analysis of the latest Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode, and a sports broadcaster's next-level Stannery.
Welcome to Watching the Throne—or, perhaps we should say, Welcome to Heartbreak. Chris and Travis are breaking down the second track on 808s & Heartbreaks, covering its themes of heartbreak, yearning, and fame life vs. a fulfilling life. Amidst the mindless banter, covering everything from Kid Cudi to family weddings to the inevitable day they meet Kanye West, they also manage to talk about the groundbreaking production of the album.
