Welcome to Watching the Throne, a lyrical analysis of...Jay Z? No, wait: JAY-Z. Because Jay Z is dead on 4:44, which means it's time for Chris and Travis to—for the first time ever—analyze a song that isn't a Kanye West track!
However, the first track off JAY-Z's latest album is ABOUT Kanye, which means the WTT crew is uniquely qualified to analyze it, dissect it—and completely trash it (sort of). They explore the old-Jay Z vs. new-JAY-Z dynamic set up on 4:44, the manner in which JAY-Z explores his demons, and what it really means that he dissed his once-protégé.
