Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
Remote Control by Kanye West
Thursday, 21 October
Glib...no. Globgobob...no. Globglo...gabgalab? Yes! That's it. That's the bulbous creature we hear at the end of Remote Control. So who exactly is the Globglogabgalab? And why the heck did he replace Kid Cudi on what is perhaps the most divisive track on Donda? Remote Control features some great lyrical wordplay from both Kanye and Young Thug, and continues an important turning point in the album's narrative—and we're going to break it all down on today's episode.
