Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
Keep My Spirit Alive by Kanye West
Monday, 8 November
Keep My Spirit Alive is a song that's absolutely chock-full of underlying meaning and introspection. The self-awareness of Westside Gunn's verse, Conway the Machine's determination to move on from a near-death experience, Kanye and his mother's ode to KRS-One—it's all there, and it's all beautiful. And in this episode, we break it all down.
