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!

Just want to feel liberated, they-ey-ey-ey...they just want to feel liberated they-ey-ey-ey...if they ever bored you to death they're sorrryyyyyyy.

THEY STRETCH THEIR HANDS!

Actually, Chris, Travis, and Jordan are sorry about this analysis, which goes so in depth into Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 & 2 (from The Life of Pablo) that you'll probably and unfortunately never even need to listen to the song again. They talking duality, adultery, liberation, and pandas in an episode that just will not end. Tell me who in here can relate.
