I Thought About Killing You by Kanye West

Monday, 1 February

Today, our trek through ye—which could be Kanye West's most challenging album yet—begins. To help, Jordan teams up with Chris and Travis as they all try to decipher who the "you" in I Thought About Killing You is. They get into all kinds of topics, including how the song is largely a response to Kill Jay Z, how Kanye sonically explores his bipolar disorder, and how the song foreshadows a grand narrative and thematic journey that builds from Daytona to ye to Kids See Ghosts.
