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!

Yeezy season approachin'...and there it went! That's right, Yeezy Season 5 went down, and Travis and Anna are here to recap all its epicness, from the outfits to the music to that weird, giant black box that was sitting in the middle of the room. They also get into what Kimye did on Valentine's Day, if it matters at all that Kanye got shut out at the Grammys, and what Clay Z has been up to over the past three months. Also expect Travis to rap, and for Anna to pretend that she's not excited that Kanye is working on a new album.
