Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

Welcome to Heartbreak by Kanye West

Monday, 5 July

Where did everything go wrong? Kanye had a pretty tumultuous year leading up to the release of 808s & Heartbreak, and Welcome to Heartbreak is the first track where we see him actively asking that question. In this episode, Chris and Travis break down the genius of the song, from Kanye's secret sample to the beauty of the minimalist production to Kid Cudi's sad-but-catchy hook.
