Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

Hey Mama - Kanye West, Late Registration

Tuesday, 7 November

Today is a celebration. To celebrate Donda West, Chris and Travis are skipping ahead a bit and breaking down Hey Mama, Kanye West's ode to his loving mother. To prepare, the Watching the Throne crew read Donda's book, "Raising Kanye," and are applying that knowledge to their analysis. They talk about Kanye's use of micro-narratives, the methodical use of the song's sample, and how Kanye creates a communal setting to celebrate his mom.
