Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

Gold Digger by Kanye West

Thursday, 18 February

As Chris and Travis continue on their Late Registration journey, they face what is probably Kanye's most complicated song narrative for any of his singles up to that point: Gold Digger. They discuss the song's commentary on gender roles, how stardom drives people to ugly lengths, and what the song's "twist" said about Kanye's view of materialism and classism at that point in his career.
