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!

Dude! In their neverending quest to be more like Kanye West, Chris and Travis take up the challenge of creating an episode that's as ridiculous and bloated as one of Ye's most reviled songs: Barry Bonds. But if you're here to see a lampooning of the Graduation track, think again! Chris and Travis actually like the song, and will not just defend its lyrics, but also show why it has a place on the album and actually foreshadows a narrative technique Kanye will go on to master on Yeezus and The Life of Pablo.

That's right—suck our bats, bitches.
