Homecoming: I Still Love H.E.R.

Tuesday, 6 November

Throughout the course of Graduation, Kanye West moves on from Chicago to conquer the world, to live the celebrity life—but did it all come at a cost? As Kanye returns to Chicago at the end of the album, he closes out this coming-of-age tale by reliving old memories while grappling with how his relationship with the city may never be the same. Chris and Travis go line by line and explore the bittersweet ode Kanye wrote to his beloved city.
