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!

Was you saying something? Was you telling Chris and Travis that spending hours upon hours talking about Kanye West was a waste of time? Was you scoffing at their analytical dive into Can't Tell Me Nothing? Was you denying the song's idyllic, yet ironic portrait of fame and fortune as the album Graduation digs the character of Kanye deeper and deeper until he's completely alienated from his friends, family and hometown of Chicago? Was you saying something???

Uh-uh you can't tell them NOTHING.
