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.


Chris and Travis have talked about the art of Kanye West in many different ways — but they've never framed it in the context of Greek philosophy. Well, never is that comparison more evident than on 'Pinocchio Story', the live freestyle that closes out '808s & Heartbreak'.


In this episode of Watching The Throne, Chris, Travis and guest Jordan explore Kanye's quest for fulfillment and happiness on what is perhaps Kanye's saddest song.
