Watching The Throne is an in-depth-yet-entertaining dive into the lyrics and narrative artistry of Kanye West's music. Hosts Travis and Chris go track by track through Ye's discography, revealing the narrative and poetic techniques he uses, tracking his growth as a storyteller, and illuminating the narratives behind his albums.
For Kanye fans, this might be the Ye-centric lyrical discussion you've been waiting for. For musicians and writers, this is practical insight into how one of the best storytellers in music history does what he does. Plus, there is a news show about Kanye, Kim, North, Saint, and Jay-Z. We look at the top 5 posts from Reddit's Kanye community, r/Kanye. And discuss other relevant Ye topics. And there's the interview series, My StorYe, where Travis and Chris interview people about their relationship with Kanye West.
For each song's bonus episode, Travis and Chris list their rankings for the songs they've covered so far, discuss their favorite lines from the song, and recall the moment Ye stopped us all in our tracks and made us think, "Wait Kanye...what???" And then, of course, they provide an update on the happenings of everybody's favorite clone, Clay Z.
In this bonus episode, Travis and Chris cover their favorite (and the craziest) lines from 'Violent Crimes'. They also discuss Pardison Fontaine writing most of Violent Crimes, Kanye West's visit to the Trump White House, Kanye's trip to Africa to record Yandhi, and (BREAKING) a surprising revelation about who told Pusha T about Drake's kid!

The perfect husband to-be has taken on a whole new level of stardom with his 2018 self-titled album - featuring singles including 'In My Blood', 'Lost In Japan', 'Youth (feat. Khalid)' and more. He's gone from teen sensation (and damn he was some sort of sensation) to full-on family favourite. The sort of man your parents would be proud if you brought him home, you know?

The love story that took the world by storm is now over. Whilst we all gasped at Pete Davidson's joke on SNL that he and Ariana Grande would probably break up... we didn't expect it to come just a few months after their engagement (which, in itself, was only a couple of months after they started dating).
Perhaps this break-up is just a metaphor for our own lives. We get so caught up in other people's lives that sometimes we forget to live our own. Or, maybe it has nothing to do with that and one of our fave couples was never meant to be. Either way: We're upset!
On the latest episode of Pop Stop's Headline Pop, Nate Grossi takes us through the aftermath of Grandavidson 2018.
