Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West


This is an in-depth-yet-entertaining dive into the lyrics and narrative artistry of Kanye West's music. We go track by track through Ye's discography, revealing the narrative and poetic techniques he uses, tracking his growth as a storyteller, and illuminating the narratives behind Yeezus and The Life of Pablo.

For Kanye fans, this might be the Ye-centric lyrical discussion you've been waiting for. For musicians and writers, this is practical insight into how one of the best storytellers in music history does what he does.

We also have a news show about Kanye, Kim, North, Saint, and Jay-Z. We look at the top 5 posts from Reddit's Kanye community, r/Kanye. And discuss other relevant Ye topics.

And there's our interview series, My StorYe, where we interview people about their relationship with Kanye West.

We hope you enjoy!

"Challenges create Champions and Austin-based singer/song writer Jake Lloyd has had his share of woes. After Leaving school in 2009 he came back to Austin to re-establish his roots in music. He began singing in several bands and made a name for himself as a prolific front-man with an energy that was unlike any other. Recently teaming up with local label KeyzStreet, the focus has been on recording his debut project while establishing a foundation for his career. Soul, hip-hop, funk are the makings of this contemporary RnB crooner but has a distinct versatility that allows him to function in a variety of different mediums."
