Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
Jesus Lord (Part 1) - Kanye's Verse
Thursday, 11 November
You really thought we could do this in one episode? Nah. Jesus Lord is an epic track. It's the Runaway of Donda—the Sun around which all of the other planets revolve. Jesus Lord gathers all of the album's themes and motifs in a grand setting where Kanye, Jay Electronica, and Larry Hoover Jr. can speak on grief, on spirituality, on achieving social justice in an unfair world. In this episode, we break down Ye's legendary verse.
