Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

KIDS SEE GHOSTS: Burn the Rain, Burn the Pain

Saturday, 9 June

You know how Kanye set release dates for Pusha's album, for his solo album, for KIDS SEE GHOSTS, for Nas' album, and for Teyana's debut? Well, we said we'd put out a Kids See Ghosts episode on the day it released, and dammit, we're following through. After a marathon texting session this morning as we listened through the album on repeat, and after a lengthy discussion as we went track by track, Chris and Travis are ready to give an overview of the storyline occurring on KIDS SEE GHOSTS—an album that takes mental illness and suicide head on, and acknowledges that if you want to get better, you have to confront (and overcome) your past demons, your ghosts.

If you'd like to support the show, please rate us on iTunes, or help us out on Patreon.

You can buy The Yeezus Book—a scholarly, visual-heavy coffee table book that breaks down Yeezus in its entirety, from the album's narrative to the production to the tour.

Check out our merchandise line.

Follow us on Twitter if you also like to constantly talk about how awesome Kanye is (we'll undoubtedly respond to you).

And please, as always, stay loopy.
