School Spirit: Fighting for Lil Jimmy

Tuesday, 19 March

At one time, Chris and Travis considered School Spirit to be Kanye's worst track—today, they make amends. Not only is there so much going on within the song itself (don't get us started on that Aretha Franklin sample), but how School Spirit and the skits play into the College Dropout narrative is next level. We're here to break it all down.
