Real Friends - Kanye West, The Life of Pablo

Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

Real Friends - Kanye West, The Life of Pablo

Tuesday, 9 January

It's taken us two years to finally reach this point, which we know has created a lot of TRUST ISSUES with our real fans—but we're in town for the day, and guess what the fuck we doin'?

We talkin' Real Friends.

The penultimate track track on The Life of Pablo's main storyline is upon us, and Chris and Travis are making sure to cover all bases before heading into the epic Wolves. In their analysis, they place Real Friends in context of everything: TLOP's narrative, Kanye's growth as a father, the story of Saul/Paul, Kanye's real-life deviation from his family, and stark realities of Ye's mental well-being—it's all here. And it's all critical to understanding Real Friends.
