Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

Big Brother: Lo Siento, Hovito

Tuesday, 13 November

During the narrative of Graduation, Kanye West indulged in the money, the alcohol, the drunk and hot girls that come with fame, which cost him his relationship with Chicago—and with his big brother. The closing track to Graduation positions Kanye in a reflective, alienated state as he heads into an album that's nothing but heartbreak and loneliness. Chris and Travis break down Kanye and JAY-Z's falling out, line by line.
