All Falls Down by Kanye West
Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
It's time for Round 2! Chris and Travis tried analyzing All Falls Down a couple years ago when they were noobs—but they are now ready to give it a more legit dissection in 2018. All Falls Down is a great example of Kanye's early storytelling and sampling powers, using Lauryn Hill and Biggie songs to encapsulate the power consumerism holds over the Black community. Of course, Chris and Travis get into all of that, along with Showgirls, Single White Female, Fight Club, and then eventually Showgirls again.
