Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

We Don't Care - Kanye West, The College Dropout

Tuesday, 10 October

The very first song Watching the Throne ever covered by Kanye West was We Don't Care. Way back in early 2015, they were just finding their footing, laying the seeds for what would become...an insane show where they would eventually come to spend over an hour trying to figure out Jay's verse on Monster.

So after mastering their craft, Chris and Travis have decided to go back to The College Dropout years and re-analyze Kanye's earliest songs. With a much different perspective post-The Life of Pablo, they evaluate Kanye's grander storytelling aspirations from an album perspective, how the song sets up a motif of ambition on the album, and how the intro skit, song, and outro skit set up a beginning, middle, and end like any movie would do.
