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!

Like we always do at this time, we go for ours, we got to shine, now put your headphones on your ears! Because it's time for Watching the Throne!! Chris and Travis apologize for missing an episode, but they're back to discuss some very important Kanye West news, like Kim and Kanye's interview in Harper's Bazaar and the brand new Wolves music video (which might be his best yet?). We also explore Jay Z's frustration with Taylor Swift, determine if Kelly Clarkson and Piers Morgan are wavy or basic, and try to figure out why the Redditors aren't more excited about the first public Saint West video because IMA LET U FINISH BUT BABY YE IS THE CUTEST BABY OF ALL TIME.

OF ALL TIME.
