Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

4th Dimension: Caught Between Space and Time

Monday, 2 July

It's Christmas...in July! That's right, Santa's coming down the chimney—but is that a good thing? Have Kanye and Cudi been naughty or nice? Chris and Travis have the answer, which is mixed within what may be the most layered song on KIDS SEE GHOSTS, and perhaps the most complex song of Kanye's career. From thematically relevant samples to repurposed drum beats to laughing jesters, 4th Dimension is not a song that can be understood in the 2 minutes and 23 seconds it takes to listen to it. So strap in, because this is one crazy episode.
