What An Awesome Nickname ,

A comprehensive dive into Kanye

While certainly laid-back and humorous, WTT presents discography wide analysis through each track it tackles. There is nuance and complexity presented here that has certainly made me a much bigger fan of Kanye, from hosts that have followed him closely enough to provide context and bigger-picture meanings for even the most polarizing or straight-up ridiculous songs in Ye’s catalogue.

Overall, a pleasure to listen to. If you truly want to dive into Kanye’s journey and psyche, this is the podcast for you.

Must Listen for Any Ye Fan

Excellent podcast, Chris and Travis really make you appreciate every syllable that comes out of Kanye’s mouth as a true work of art. Sorry Jordan.

I don’t think there’s any Kanye podcast like this

As a huge Kanye fan I really appreciate this podcast so much because there’s so much thought put into every single Kanye song where they go line by line dissecting what the lyrics mean and I think that it’s just amazing because I’m learning so much about my favorite artist man and that’s just so amazing thank you guys so much for making this podcast because there’s so much to dive in to when it comes to Kanye West.
