Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

Jesus Walks by Kanye West

Wednesday, 14 October

If you know Kanye West, then you know it all started here. "Jesus Walks" was everything to the young rapper/producer/storyteller/future president back in 2004, which means Chris and Travis can't screw up and give this song a subpar analysis! So they're going to be extra thorough for this line-by-line deconstruction, which is chock-full samples and interpolations and stories and meaning and oh god this is gonna be a long one isn't it.
