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!

Chris and Travis' favorite word in the English language? Brevity—it's the only thing they know! And this 53-minute episode covering the week in Kanye West, Jay Z, and Kim Kardashian news can attest to that. They're talkin' Yeezy Season 4, Saint Pablo Tour, Desiigner, prepubescent boys and their YouTube comments, Dennis the Menace, wild rice & broccoli, Connect Four, and, of course, the mid-season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Sorry...they are seriously so sorry.
