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!

Real fans.

How many of us.

How many of us.

How many of us—TIME ISSUES. 

How many of us. How many zealous? Real fans. There are so many of us. We hug each other. But how many waste their days away doing a Kanye podcast? TIME ISSUES. Kanye switched up his style. He can't be bothered, I cannot blame him, for havin' a jewelry line, I ain't got no issues, I'm just doin' my thing—hope he doin' his thing too. Kendall is an awesome sister, improves family reunions. Fuck the Pepsi ad up by drinking at the protest. Spillin' freedom, now the youth is ruined. Political for a day—what the fuck we doin'? Who the real fans? We all came from College Dropout. We always blamin' Ye, but what's sad, he not the problem. Damn we talked about The Wiz, shit I thought it was the MJ Cast. Why you wait a week write a bad review in the first place? When was the last time we remembered to keep the episode short? When was the last time we was even in a hurry?

Real fans.
