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!

We're feeling like we've never felt before today...

Because we've never felt this confused.

This is a weird one. For the first time in Watching the Throne, Chris and Travis are at a loss about a song. While they like We Major...they might not know what the song is about at all? Or they might know exactly what the song is about? Or they might have a thousand different theories for what the song could be about?

Who knows. Go down the rabbit hole with them as they try to piece together We Major, which is either Kanye West's sloppiest song or a misunderstood meta pop masterpiece.
