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!

As 24-hour news outlets try to incessantly fill the day with the most mundane banalities of life, Chris and Travis find themselves strapped for time in trying to cover a week worth of Kanye West. Yeezus himself is up to big things this week, doing a classic interview that rails against the fashion industry and getting in an emotional feud with Kid Cudi. Also in other news, the NFL is not a fan of Yeezys, Kim is posting nude selfies once again, and Jay Z is getting into the lucrative children's lullabies business.
