A comprehensive dive into Kanye
What An Awesome Nickname
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.
If y’all want to be a great Kanye podcast, at least pay attention to what Dissect did with the Kanye season.
Learning so much!
I've always loved Kanye, but this podcast is going in-depth in a way I'd never expected. A really fun, entertaining, and informative show!
I definitely have a changed perspective on the Yeezus and TLOP alboas a result of this podcast.
Yeezy Yeezy what's goooood
This show gets me through the workday. Simply the best music analysis you'll hear.
Only listen for Jay Z news
Honestly gets me through my day, I love skipping through just to hear Jay Z factual news. Thank y’all so much!
So amazing so amazing it’s amazing
This is the best Kanye podcast series ever these guys are pretty funny and interesting and worth a listen
Honestly the most insightful and captivating podcast for any music nerd!
The best source for Kanye. love these guys
Awesome podcast friends. Yeez forevs
Best Kanye community! Engaging hosts and content. Yeezy Season approaching.

Yall are GOAT
Taught me that Yeezus and TLOP are the two best albums of all time. Period.
A public service
Chris and Travis (sorry, Jordan) have madr my blind love of everything Kanye much more educated. Their dedication to their craft is unmatched by anyone (other than Kanye).
AHHHHHHH I love this podcast
The podcast ye deserves
The perfect podcast for any die hard Kanye fans, or people just looking for an introduction to his music. Great narrative based deep-dives into songs,lyrics, and music videos.
This is where the swamp is

A super in-depth analysis of Kanye that never fails to entertain. Chris, Travis, Jordan, Anna, Janie, etc. are all really likable and funny. I look forward to a new episode every Tuesday and Friday. If you are a huge Kanye fan, or a big fan of WWE, you need this podcast in your life. I highly recommend episodes such as Blood On the Leaves, Father Stretch My Hands, Famous, I'm In It, Champion, Everything I Am, Runaway, Hell of a Life, and Blame Game. I can't wait for the Lift Off and No More Parties in LA episodes.
Great Concept, Shaky Execution
Kanye deserves to have a platform that is dedicated to the careful analysis of his work. Going through line by line creates good discussion, but they do not fully understand the double meanings, especially cultural/Chicago/slang references... which Kanye’s music is littered with. This lack of understanding leads to them missing major messages and themes throughout his works. It feels as though the analysis is very ill prepared, with much of it being read from rap genius, the rest being theorized on the spot. My major issue is that these guys are NEVER critical of one another, agreeing with and building off of literally anything that is said. Often times they go off on a theorized tangent, due to missing a reference, that is just confirmed by the other guy then repeated. They are worth listening to if you’re a huge Kanye fan and seek to understand his complexity in more detail - but just know these guys aren’t the experts. They should consider bringing in someone who can better grasp the cultural context of Kanye and understand him at a deeper level.
People actually listening to Ye and understanding what he's about
This is exhaustive, but considering what an icon and genius the man is, this is needed.
Love ye and love this podcast
Fulfills my insatiable appetite for kanye west analysis
Keep it up guys!
Do your thing!
I’ve been an avid listener for a while now, and figured it was time to rate and review. The guys do the best job digging deep into what Kanye is saying, singing, sampling, etc. This podcast is what I recommend to anyone who asks for new shows to listen to. I’ve had people completely change their perception and opinion of Kanye because they have this podcast a listen. A must for the newest fans to the biggest stans. Hopefully Chris & Travis get to interview Ye someday! Great job guys, I seriously love the show!
Hilarious and informative. Great theories and analysis! Stay wavy
So glad I found this podcast
Super fun and in depth analysis
Yeezus Just Rose Again
Far too many people think Kanye is some dumb, egocentric person who makes some rap music that ranges from bad to decent. I’m so glad to have found a podcast that understands how fantastic of an artist Kanye is, and the humor keeps it light while they dive deep into lyrics and themes that are often quite heavy.

I found this podcast through Dissect, and I have been picking my way through the huge inventory ever since. I find myself wanting to listen to this podcast more and more, but especially when I feel sad. The warmth, humor, passion, and love Travis and Chris have for their material is powerful and enlightening for someone feeling low. The laughter is a tonic, so I'll just say thanks before I get any more sentimental. Thanks!
My favorite podcast
By far my favorite podcast I’ve ever listened to. The amount of depth the creators go into is just mind blowing. It’s very enjoyable to listen to no matter what I’m doing. Going into this show a year ago I didn’t think my appreciation for Kanye could go any higher but this podcast made it elevate even higher. I can’t express how thankful I am for this podcast and their creators. I highly recommend it to the average Kanye fan and the Die hard Kanye fan because no matter what you are, you’ll learn something new.
Perfect for Kanye Fans!
I believe music lovers will appreciate this podcast as well as those who like to think deeply and have a good laugh. These two are amazing hosts and super insightful. It’s now hard for me to listen to a song that doesn’t have substance after listening to this now. Give it a good listen and I promise you’ll keep coming back for more. Thanks Travis and Chris!
I honestly don't know what I listened to before I found this perfect podcast of individuals that are as obsessed with Kanye as I am. SO MANY HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT AHEAD OF ME, thank you Travis and Chris.
These guys are hilarious and highly informed. Highly recommend.
Testing my Gandhi / wearing Abercrombie
I think that Kanye means because he is wearing clothes that make him look soft or non threatening, polos , ripped jeans , (cloths similar to what's at Abercrombie) etc That makes him a target to try in the eyes of hard dudes. Kanye do not dress Gangsta or Hard so people might think he soft & non violent because of his clothes.
But I like the show, mentality stimulating hip hop inspired conversation. Keep it up !!
This podcast is my go to Kanye West podcast. They go deep with their analysis of Kanye’s music and have a great dynamic among each other. My favorite podcast are the StorYes. Stellar!
Ice cream party podcast
One of those rare podcast that you make you look forward to certain days of the week because you know they’ll be dropping episodes. Every time I listen I learn something new give this podcast a chance and I guarantee you’ll be hooked on it I always enjoy looking back at them breaking down my favorite kanye songs. A top 3 podcast that I have and I listen to about 15.
Do not sleep on this
Whether you’re a Kanye Stan, or someone discovering Ye and trying to understand him and his work, definitely give this show a listen. So much is missed and looked over on just the surface of his music and personality, these guys do such a great job of dissecting and analyzing Ye’s work to date, and help the listener come to appreciate it all even more. I can guarantee you’ll never consume a Kanye album the same way again, and you’ll definitely enjoy it more every listen after.
my kinda Ye chat
I love listening to these guys! I love the lyrical analysis. And more recently I've loved feeling like I'm a part of this little community of true Kanye fans.
This podcast is amazing. I love Kanye and I love how you guys appreciate his work on an intellectual level. I feel smarter listening to this!! So glad you guys are doing this! Please keep it up🙏🏽🙏🏽
Thoroughly enjoyable analysis of the man and his music. Loaded with insights. Thought provoking.
Out of all the entertainment podcasts available, I love you the most! In depth, funny, reflective, informative, relatable and easy to follow! Thank you for making my commute enjoyable! Love you! ❤️
Deezy taught me

One of the best podcasts out there.
If you like Kanye, hip hop, or just music in general, you should listen to this. The analysis is amazing and adds a whole new dimension to Kanye’s music. A must-have for music lovers.
here's a review of a podcast i enjoy
What's not to love?
Excellent analysis of this generations biggest artist
A lot of people think music isn't important or that it can't make a difference in the world. But it's important to me and Kanye is my favorite artist. I love the banter between Chris and Travis and they go back and forth about each song and what it means. Kanye's music has changed my life and hearing different perspectives on how each song has affected others is amazing.
