One Minute: Time Marches On

Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

One Minute: Time Marches On

Tuesday, 18 December

XXXTENTACION's Skins is a posthumous album released after the artist's death earlier this year. Kanye West, a huge fan of X, contributed to the album's central track, One Minute. On this episode, Chris and Travis break down the dark lyrical poetry of the verse, how Kanye fit his personal narrative in with X's struggle with depression, and why Kanye's "controversial" lines about sexual assault...are likely not about sexual assault at all.
