Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

Kurt Cobain, Shine Your Light On Me

Friday, 14 December

For Cudi Montage, Kid Cudi really wanted to sample Kurt Cobain. Why is that? In this bonus episode we go through the album to show how Cobain's posthumous song Burn the Rain caps off the storyline on KIDS SEE GHOSTS and represents catharsis for Kanye and Cudi.

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—on June 18.

Check out our two Kanye West shirts currently on the market (we have a Runaway and a Hold My Liquor shirt).

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.
