Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
RoboCop by Kanye West
Wednesday, 14 July
"Dead or alive, you're coming with me." That's the way RoboCop treats criminals. It's also how Kanye thinks he's being treated by his woman on the song RoboCop...but is that true? Or is it the other way around? Of course nuance and complexity abounds on 808s & Heartbreak, and Chris and Travis are here to pick apart every detail. In this episode, they deconstruct Kanye's clever wordplay, dig into the deeply layered production, and excitedly discuss what is probably Kanye's coolest sample on the album yet.
