Through the Wire by Kanye West

Wednesday, 16 December

Every superhero has their origin story. Often they are called upon for a greater mission, but must find the power to fight from within. And here on Through the Wire, Kanye finds himself in that exact situation as he looks to turn tragedy to triumph after a terrible car accident. Chris and Travis break down how Kanye does this with his energy and production, from his legendary Chaka Khan sample to his avant-garde storytelling techniques to his subtle nod to Gil Scott-Heron.
