I’ve been catching up on OSO and it’s so fantastic. Kanye has always been an artist that I’ve known by his singles and I’ve liked everything I heard and have had him penciled to my terrifyingly long “To Listen” list. But because his backcatalog is so huge, I just never found the time. This podcast is making me find the time, and I am massively appreciative of it. I have never heard a podcast about, like, discussion of particular discrete songs before, and I need more of it in my life now, god.
Also in making a Spotify list for OSO (no Watch the Throne sadly 8( ), I discovered I know the lyrics to a looooot more Kanye songs than I thought? When the hell did I learn all the words to “Runaway”? I have no clue.
Anyway I’m max looking forward to the next episode, and also I know its in a joking stage at the moment, but I would love for another season down the line, for another rap artist or even for any other artist with a massive body of work. (Fingers crossed for Mountain Goats, actually, to force me to finally dive into their stuff too.)
