Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

Tuesday, 6 February

It's time for Round 2! Chris and Travis tried analyzing All Falls Down a couple years ago when they were noobs, but are now ready to give it a more legitimate dissection in 2018. All Falls Down is a great example of Early Kanye's storytelling and sampling powers, using Lauryn Hill and Biggie songs to encapsulate the power consumerism holds over black society. Of course, Chris and Travis get into all of that, along with Showgirls, Single White Female, Fight Club, and then eventually Showgirls again.
