The New Workout Plan: All This Irony for $Free.99?!

For about two-thirds of this episode, Chris and Travis wondered, "Did Kanye have any deeper intentions with The New Workout Plan?" And then suddenly, amidst the chaos of what is considered to be one of Kanye West's worst songs...they happen upon something. Go through this journey with them, as they try to fit this song into the College Dropout narrative and find out how it captures a young Kanye trying to find his place in the music industry.
