Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
Ghost Town by Kanye West
On POWER, Kanye had treasures in his mind but couldn't open up his own vault. But on Ghost Town, Ye's childlike creativity, purity, and honesty is set free, allowing him to feel like a kid again. The masterful journey this song takes to achieve the catharsis of 070 Shake's outro cannot possibly be conveyed...yet here Chris and Travis are, trying to do one of Kanye West's greatest songs justice. They cover it all, from Shirley Ann Lee's gospel music to Kid Cudi's interpolation of Vanilla Fudge to what is possibly the most vulnerable verse of Kanye's career.
