Jail by Kanye West
Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
Tuesday, 7 September
Guess who's explaining Jail tonight? We are! Moving on from Donda Chant into the first official song on Donda, we find Kanye and JAY-Z trapped in a symbolic jail they must work their way out of. In this episode, we discuss what that jail means for both Kanye and Jay, who have both suffered from rocky marriages, and how that lays the foundation for the album narrative moving forward.
