Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

ye: A Spiritual Awakening

Wednesday, 6 June

It's only been three days, but Chris, Travis, and Jordan have been talking NON-STOP about Kanye West's new album, ye, since its release and feel ready to provide a general overview of the album's narrative and thematic journey before heading into the individual song analyses over the next seven weeks. In this episode, we discuss how the album provides insight into Kanye's recent behavior, how it plays into the narrative building on his discography, and what new directions it points for his forthcoming projects (including Kids See 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.
