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!

Watching the Throne's in the house, watch your mouth...

Watching the Throne's in the house, watch your mouth...

Bound...2! Bound 2!! We did it!!! Chris, Travis, and Jordan have been down a long, strange, dark, grimy, emotionally draining road covering Yeezus—Kanye West's misunderstood masterpiece—and they've reached the end of that road...or is it the end? Does Bound 2 signal a new chapter for Kanye that leads directly into themes and narrative of The Life of Pablo? Is Kanye's character bound to love...or to the pressures of celebrity? Will we EVER stay in step with Kanye and decipher his genius???

Probably not. But here's our best shot.
