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!

Hotline Cream? That can only mean one thing...there's an obnoxious Kanye West news episode waiting for everyone! It's a very special week for WTT, as Drake and Taylor Swift have officially become best friends with Chris and Travis and realized what undeniable geniuses they are. In this episode, Bean and Lamb discuss several weird tiny bits of Kanye news, the songs they would love to see mashed up with Yeezy, and their new, blossoming friendships with two celebrities that can only dream about someday being as successful as two privileged white boys who host an absurd hip hop podcast.
